Great work as usual. Did you make the signal arm too?

Hi Ray how are you going?
yes my work I have to confess to having a signal fetish .many many moons ago I made patterns in brass of most of the working parts of a lower quadrant signal in 1-32 scale.i made the parts by hand using a piercing saw and files I suppose it was part of my apprentice and the onset of permanently wearing of glasses. these patterns were later cast in pewter. the first photo is the patterns and then a full assembled signal. the signals had some custom parts like the arms but the weight was worked out so the signal was fully working just like the real thing -mechanically.

Kim, Your patterns and signals look good.
I think your signal indicates: "STOP-cow on the tracks-No Smoking-get a loaf of bread and quart of milk on your way home-watch for falling rocks.
Is that close?

The most important aspect of the signal says "my Mother is coming to dinner, DO NOT be late".

thanks, everybody
looking at all this now it is so old school as a retail, a prospect they are not just crisp enough. but I made them before 3 d printing so I got a grounding in pewter and lost wax casting it makes more sense to me still today as my software knowledge is very limited.
cheers.

Kim,

I think it's fundamentally important to know the base, because only all of the 3d model making is not everything. Your work is not diminished in any way by the fact that it is not a 3d print.

hi there.
I was getting a bad feeling some bits of my model South Creek were beginning to get on my nerves so with the idea of constantly trying to improve both in technique and content i am rebuilding a few bits. easy once the basic elements are established.i will post some more once the changes are finished.
all the best kim.
