Railride----> I read your question on my mail box but it don't appear on the thread: window glass is from EVERGREEN, transparent sheet of styrene 0,25 mm thick ref # 9902.

Yeah that

Right after I posted, I looked back through the thread and saw where you already answered the question I asked so I deleted my post. Thanks for re-stating the info, though.

By the way, are your 3D drawings produced with the free version of SketchUp? I suspected that someone had come up with a means of converting SketchUp files to something that could be sent to a 3D printer, but wasn't so sure that also applied to the free version.


CHRISTOPHER N&W----> Thank you for your comment! rendez-vous on the other thread!

RAILRIDE---->I had not understood why your post had been deleted and who had done that!! 

My 3D drawings are made with SKETCHUP Make (the free version); if you want to convert the files for 3D printing (.stl files), you have to download a plug-in via the SKETCHUCATION website. That's all. No need to have the "pro" version.

Hello, fantastic work. I only hope that mine comes half as good as yours.  My name is Robert Brown and I build in 1:32 and attempting to build some Superliner cars in 1:32 and saw your 3d drawings of your trucks on Bing while I was looking for info. on Superliner trucks.  Are you interesting in selling your O gauge 3d drawings so that I could convert them to 1:32?  If you don't, I will understand.  My email is     I have built two 1:32 P42's and some Superliners would look good behind them. I would appreciate your consideration.  I don't sell my work, as this is only for me.  I have threads on under the name, rbrown7713 and all of my endeavors are mainly in kitbashing. Thanks for your consideration, Robert Brown.

Thanks guys for your nice comments!

At this day, the second one has begun but now, I'm waiting for a 3D printer; I have modified all the 2D drawings in 3D to make the shell; cutter and rule are not enough accurate to have the quite "perfect" appearance I wish for this passenger car; the first one has defaults that I don't want to see on the second one. I hope to have this 3D printer in the 2 or 3 monthes to come..........Unfortunately, my retirement pension is not stretchable!!!!!!!!

Thanks, Dan!

Hope that your 3D printer give you now satisfaction (I saw the "beast" on your thread).

What brand this machine?

For me, I will buy soon a Creality CR 10S.

The one I have is a clone machine from China, based on the Prusa I3.

I'm still learning, for sure. The learning curve is a little steep!

I was going to attempt to make them sprung, but if I had, the gauge of the wire would not look scale, too small,  so the trucks are fixed.  The springs are wrapped around a bolt and then sized.  The wire is actually aluminum, looks more scale.  Your models look beautiful.  All of my 1:32 molds are made, sides, roofs, ends, trucks, and even made molds for the glass roof lounge car.  The lounge car will be the first one that I finish.  Take a look on gscaleforum and everthing is there. Bob.

Hello all,

I stopped my model railway activity; too much other things to do: total refit of my condo from groud to ceiling and as I'm now 71, I work more slowly than when I was 30....

I hope to begin again working on this summer...

To answer Jeff, thanks for your comment; but I don't know at all how many time I spent to build this superliner, sorry; many monthes seems to me the good answer!!!

Hello, Bob, how are you!
