SCRATCH BUILDING WITH TECHNOLOGY
TRISTRAM NEAL was inspired to build his own 0-4-0PT for ‘OO’ gauge using modern 3D printing and milling techniques to develop it from scratch. In this guide Tristram reveals why he chose the design and how he developed it into the finished locomotive.
There are many ways to make your own model locomotive. Skilled scratch builders form wonderfully detailed models from plasticard, brass and card with donor parts from an old locomotive, or white metal bodies with brass chassis kits.
