The Run Up to the NMRA (BR) Convention

This coming weekend is the National Model Railroad association (British Region) annual convention, The Seashore Extra 2014.  I will be hosting a clinic on the Saturday entitled ‘How 3D printing works and how it can help you’.  So this week’s post will be a little shorter than usual as I am busy getting ready for the show.

This year the convention will be at the Carrington House Hotel in Bournemouth, and for  those who can make it to the convention my clinic will be at 11.00am on Saturday.

Here is a link to the NMRA (BR) convention web site if you need directions and any other information.

Last week I said I would get back onto the HO Scale Union Pacific water tender project and I have made progress with it although not enough to share with you now but it will be ready for the convention.

The HO kit is now available through the Shapeways site in both FD and FUD materials and I will cover the finished model in a later post. Although the FUD is higher-priced compared to the FD it will give you a slightly more detailed finish. You can get them here.

I’m looking forward to meeting all of you who can come to the convention and for those who can’t make it I will be posting up pictures and videos of all the layouts over the next few weeks.
