3D printed Stamp mill in HO scale
Posted by Graffen on Monday, May 01, 2017 12:20 PM

My latest build: 

A Stamp mill in HO scale for my HOn3 layout.

I've made it from plans in the "Old wood and stone buildings​" book.

I CAD converted the drawn plans and as I have a 3D printer, I printed the timber frame, windows, doors, smoke stack and loading platform.

I then covered the frame with Northeastern wood and the roof with cardboard covered with surgical tape.

The stays for the smokestack are made of piano wire.

The painting is acrylics on mineral spirits soaked wood...It makes it so nicely weathered.

India​ ink washes to represent rotten wood and shadows etc.

 

I'm almost finished with the diorama, and will show more pics of the build later.

Looks great Graffen! Do you have any pictures of the 3D printed building before you placed the exterior walls and roof? I am interested to see what it looked like

I just checked my printer logs, and the total cost was roughly $10.
