Hi Everyone,

Any members of the N gauge forum will recognise this but seeing there aren't many N gaugers on this forum I thought I would show you the latest project I am undertaking. As there is no RTR model of the Gloucester Class 128 parcels unit in N Gauge, the only options are kits or the way I am doing it. The way I am constructing the loco is with a dummy Class 121 chassis (because of price) that is fixed to a 3D printed 128 body that has to be painted, transfers, handrails and exhausts added. I hope to show you my progress as I go.


The two models together.




It will be painted BR Blue with full yellow ends to make it simple.
Will try to update with progress as I go.

Regards Connor

Wow. That is quite an undertaking! Did you do the 3D printing?

No, I didn't do the 3D printing, the design is by one of the Ngaugeforum members and it is printed by Shapeways.

Well after a bit of a wait on this topic, the primer and yellow ends have now been completed, hope to do the blue soon, tomorrow preferably.







Regards Connor

More progress has been achieved on the 128.


This one shows the body after 2 coats of Rail Blue. All the paints used were Railmatch acrylics as we can't get enamels imported into Australia.


The roof after 2 coats of BR coach roof grey.


The body finished with all the masking peeled off. I am pleased with the result.


The painted body next to the donor model, makes an interesting comparison with the first post.


The body loosely sitting on the chassis. It was a naughtyword to get off the 121 body, ended up cutting wires for the lighting but I don't see this as a huge loss. Next step is transfers, exhausts, glazing and painting the buffer beam black instead of the red suited to the green 121.  

Regards Connor
