5th December 1881 Pullman Limited

 Maud, Victoria, Beatrice and Louise.

Hot off the 3D printer are the one piece body parts for the 4mm scale 1881 Pullman Limited. Also a first try at the 8' bogie.

The end panel of the outer two cars is just positioned with bluetac at present. I need to beef up a couple of areas of the bogie.

The bogie has a thin strip from the corners to and between the bottom of the w-irons. This needs increasing in thickness so it will print properly. I may offer the bogies in slightly different configurations so they could be attached to a brass inner part for instance. 

There are basically two types of Pullman car here, the centre two and the outer two. The outer two have a luggage area at the extreme ends of the close couple set. 

This is the end luggage cars.

This is the centre cars.

Obviously, I still have to sort out the underframe/floor parts and the furniture within. 

I thought people might be interested to see the current status. 

Now to try some 7mm prints!
