I like the Brown color is the Violet Hill real or made up? Very nice!
Now that I have a command station with RailCom, I will be using only ESU, Zimo and TCS decoders, and will replace the two Digitrax decoders on a couple of locos that I purchased with them already installed. They ran okay on my old system, but then it didn't have RailCom either. I have installed a couple of Zimos that run very well. ESU and Zimo have extremely good motor control.
Much appreciated! It's my freelanced railroad, running between Grand Rapids and Mackinaw City, MI, on ex-Pennsy rails (hence the logo).
Hi to all
Just got a new Anycubic Mono 2 yesterday. This one works correctly. Waiting on the curing unit. I picked up some container files from Stephane (see the resources tab on TrainBoard.) Then, bought the file for "speeder and wagons" from Cults3d.com (only a few bucks). I also got a file for a speaker cabinet for an ES44 diesel. Lots to do.
Also, got 4 50 foot boxcars from Trainz- all Micro-Trains, great price, too.
after seeing so many corn fields i thought i would try printing some corn. lil bit of paint an WALA ill have a corn field soon..
I've seen a bunch of those corn fields and they aren't convincing simply because every single stalk of corn looks like every other. My thought was that if I ever bought those, or printed them, I would try to use a heat gun or something to soften them up so that I could move the leaves and stalks and they could be a little more unique. I think even a little variation would go a long way.
Airbrushing them would go a long way as well...but it would be kind of tedious work.
Congrats and tell us more unless you did on a different post that I didn't see. Sounds like you replaced the Sprog? Is it RailCom or Plus compatible (not that I know much about either)?
Funny i was thinking about that as well. making some with taller an some shorter then a bit of heat an twist them around a bit. the ones ive printed have a few that are taller and shorter. Maybe even flockum just a bit with some green turf then a touch of yellow paint drifted onto the tops...
Well, I have a Bachmann 0-6-0 here that runs well. I came across some of the Micro Trains 1100 packs that convert an Arnold 0-6-0 to a 2-6-0 and am looking at trying it on the Bachmann. Anyone else ever tried this? Any ideas and/or suggestions welcome!
