3D model description

C&D – Collect and Delivery means the service provided by railroads to collect or deliver cargo to/from freight yards to senders/receivers. Since the beginning of railroads, this was carried out by horse carriages, but especially after WW1 more and more trucks were used. In UK the Thornycroft PB-type was one of the more common lorries in this service.

Having created a model of this type here:

I had fun to create some more bodies. Any body works with any chassis!

There are also two more chassis/cab-variations, one I would call a “late mid” version (with front windows), were the other is an “earlier late” version (late cab, but still with solid tyres).

After printing and painting the solid top body and the body with awning in one piece I realised that this version is easier to print, but a little tricky to paint inside. So I made a split version of theses bodies (lower part is identical but top is either solid or awning). So you may choose to print single piece or in two parts.

All models are sized for British n-scale (1:148).

Conversion values:
Continental N-scale, 1:160 -> 92.5%
TT-gauge, 1:120 -> 123%
HO/H0-gauge, 1:87 -> 170%
OO/00-gauge, 1:76 -> 195%
O/0-gauge, 1:48 -> 308%

I'm an engineer having fun in my free time to design models in n-scale of objects I found interesting. I have an SLA-3D-printer and with this technology it’s possible to create models with a lot of details, never possible to create otherwise. I enjoy to explore the limits of this new edge of modelling.

Issue with this design? Report a problem.
