This page is for anything for sale other than my range of kits and bits in an attempt to de-clutter the home page.
I drew one of these for fitting in an SM32 Shapeways print ans thought it would be good to offer them for sale. This is the 2 cylinder Dorman Ricardo motor with most of the parts visible from the outside included. I can print these in any scale required and currently have some 7mm ones and one for SM32. They include part of the chassis beam and are fitted by cutting out a section from the body until it fits. Prices start at £2.00 for a 7mm one.
After buying dozens of Shapeways bodies to design chassis for them I need to sell some on to make room for others. Some listed below are popular so I always keep a couple in stock. None have couplings which I leave to the purchaser to sort out.
Jung EL105, one only RTR in 14mm gauge
Cabless Jung EL105 - £85.00
I was asked by a customer to make a chassis for a Jung EL105 in 16.5mm, the Shapeways body is too narrow and can only be mated with a chassis in 14mm or less. Since he had the body sent directly to me I thought I would have a go at it.
The original thought was to add side L beams to move the axleboxes out, as used on Rustons for gauges over 2 feet, but I went for a simpler version on the day. The side frames with axleboxes were cut out and a strip of plastic card with some rivets added was glued across the gap. The axleboxes were trimmed to form a step at the top and were glued in place.
I think the result is quite acceptable and is not much wider than the 14mm version. The pictures show the 14mm one on the left and 16.5mm on the right. After taking the pictures I realised that I had used the wrong wheels on the 16.5mm one and changed them later.
If you have a hankering for a small loco not usually suited to 16.5mm, ask me as a conversion may be possible, the price will vary according to the complexity.
CKD BN30U, one only RTR in 14mm gauge
CKD BN30U - £85.00
If you missed out on any of the locos advertised above I can always do more, the chassis can be ready in 2 or 3 days but the order for the body from Shapeways can take 2 weeks, also prices have risen since Brexit due to VAT and sometimes duty being imposed.
All are supplied running with the body in primer, I also fit a mesh for the radiator if this is missing from the print. Any gauge from 16.5 to 12mm available but not always 16.5mm as some bodies are too narrow, 10.5 and 9mm are special order only and not always possible, I often have to use an etched chassis for these gauges which adds to the price.
See the list on the right for locos already catered for and others are still to be added when I get to them. The Gnomy tram was for a customer and fits simply by removing the ribbing in the yellow plastic lower part.
O&K - mMD1, MD2, LD2, RL1a
LKM - Ns1, Ns2
CKD - BN30R, BN30U

Several of the above have also been made for 1/35th scale and I can always modify a chassis to suit other scales.
