Model Building and Super Detailing - Detailing Techniques Including 3D Printing

This book in the railway modelling series drills deeper into the tips and techniques that can be utilised by the modern modeller to produce a detailed and cohesive model railway. Through rich and varied imagery from the Market Deeping club, British and international examples, a number of different styles of scenery are covered. Subject chapters include locations from open country to heavy industry. Background and foreground tricks to draw the eye, that difficult to emulate water feature, and composing your scenes as independent units for later inclusion. Use is made of construction examples as varied as a tube station in OO to a farm in N. The basics of plastic stock kit building, adapting a model with a detailing kit, as well as scratch build from spare parts are demonstrated. Whilst 3D printing feels an impossible dream for many, practical ownership and operation of both thermal extrusion and resin based 3D printers is covered. With demonstration examples from the very basic, such as taking existing designs and scaling them for your own requirements on thermal extrusion, through to a worked CAD and highly detailed resin printer output. The overall aim is to stimulate the modeller to commence that tricky project, to produce something that externalises that inner dream whilst providing some of the basics to build up both confidence and skills.
