Development Workbench: Scale Loco Lamps
I’ve been wanting to try this for a while but finding the time for a bit of R&D has been tricky lately. But I’ve finally made time to try it: 4mm Scale loco lamps. These were created by scanning WR lamps (as well as Midland, Southern, Eastern and Industrial, thanks to Iain at Llangollen). The base is slotted, which was a bit of a gamble at this size, but thankfully it appears to have worked.
They have been tested on the factory fitted Bachmann lamp irons on the 64xx, the etched Mainly Trains irons fitted to my 57xx and Shawplan’s etched irons on the Dukedog. The handle is 0.2mm dia so very, very delicate. I’ll be sending a few of these out for feedback and all being well they will be on sale in February. It is likely that the handle diameter will be increased, but I couldn’t resist printing them as close to scale as possible.
I hope to also get some 7mm samples ready in time for Bristol O Gauge show at the end of the month.
