Definitely still happening, just sorting out pc problems.

Will have 2 photo based side panel templates/backgrounds and a minimum resolution guide for those wanting to work from a totally blank canvas.

As the side panel are just rectangles, it's all pretty simple.

Will also have a photo of a blank and another with the side panel designs added for everyone to see, thanks for everyone's patience.

As planned before, each artist will get a hand cast 5" resin plaster train with their own design (or pick and mix from the other artists designs) sent out to them in return for their design. Looking to get 2 more to make it up 15, then will have around 1 - 4 new designs a month.

This is a non profit 'by artists for artists' setup where the only way to get hold of a train is to be involved by submitting a design.

List so far:

1. DMS
2. SELPH_ONE
3. das mo
4. Konako
5. shadowunkle
6. Rsinart
7. Okkle
8. riot68
9. DJ Quinico
10. orlowone
11. Crestone
12. AW177
13. gen0365
14. rawket
1 place left.

Looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.

Cheers

Thanks for the offer das, i just messed with it too much and don't think I added enough hardener when i made the mould.

Due to the prototype being 5", changing the size would mean a whole new one, not something i have time for unfortunately as i'm also working on a 3" figure called Konez (which I'm test casting at the moment).

Cheers

I'd prefer the real train to paint, because I suck at drawing onto 2d, I have an easier time doin' some 3d stuff, hence why I mainly do munnys/dunnys.
