How does Rusty Rail stay rusty with all of their activity? Now a 3D printer compliments their quality resin casting process and this month we see the first fruits of the system.
These are the freshmen models of Rusty rail's 3D printing service. Rusty Rail has ordered a Form 2 printer to produce an even finer level of detail.

3D printer models

O Scale - 1/48
    RRPR-O-05 Susann the Farmers Daughter: You can see the detail is off the charts even the fingers are separate on the raised hand. You can see the bows in back of here apron and of course barefoot since you only wore your good shoes for church on Sunday.

    RRBS-O-20 5 gas cans

    RRSP-O-20 Old Hit n Miss Engine: Would look great in your business providing power to your shop or as junk on the side of a building somewhere. Some simple assembly is required. The castings of course are not painted. The figure ( Max, the Foreman: http://railroadmodeling.kitmaker.net/modules.php?op=modload&name=Reviews&file=index&req=showcontent&id=9652 ) is not included just for you to see the size of the item. The engine measures 1" by 1 1/4" by 1" tall.

    RRPR-O-04 Bill the Tractor Driver: this guy is in 4 separate pieces you assemble the legs, torso and arms you can position him as you wish. Also if have a hairdryer you can heat him up and change him how every you want.

HO scale - 1/87
    RRLE-H-07 Old Hit n Miss Engine: Would look great in your business providing power to your shop or as junk on the side of a building somewhere. Some simple assembly is required. The engine measures 1" by 1 1/4" by 1" tall.

Castings
O Scale - 1/48
    CAT 30 Model: this is a great static model that you can use in different scenes. You get a piece of metal pipe for the stack. I added a winch to the back of the cat. I went back to the separate tracks and the main casting. Some minor assembly for you to add the tracks to the body. Check out all the detail throughout. Measures 2" by 1 1/2" by 1 1/2" tall.

HO scale - 1/87
    RRLE-H-06 Bates Crawler kit: you get the castings you see above plus a plastic rod for assembly. Measures 1 1/2" long by 7/8" wide.

    RRLE-H-05 Assembled Bates Crawler: measures 1 1/2" long by 7/8" wide. All resin casting and comes pre-primered.

    RRLE-H-04 HO Log Skidder Conversion Kit: a quick little conversion kit to take the Bachmann Log Skidder. The kit contains the skidder bottom and a water tank. You need to purchase the Bachmann Log Skidder model to complete the conversion. This is so simple to build the skidder you remove from the plastic skidder by using a flat head screw driver then a little paint and weathering and there you go. Parts for two skidders are provided. Measures 2 1/2" long by 7/8" wide by 3/4" tall.

    RRSL-H-01 Resin Logs: four different logs, each is 3 1/4" long.

    RRLE-H-01 Two Drum Logging Steam Donkey: a new casting this month, this is a stand alone unit that you can place anywhere to move cargo from ships to trucks, or logs at a mill. The casting is shipped in 4 pieces the base and the drums and the boiler. This will make a unique scene for your railroad. The casting measures 3 1/2" long by 1 3/8" wide and 2 1/2" high.

    RLE-H-02 Steam Winch and Boiler: you can purchase them separate from the Donkey engine castings, including a wood pile for the boiler. The casting measures 2" long by 3/4" wide and 2" high.

    RRLE-H-03 Tank On Skids: used anywhere in a logging operation, industrial or a portable fueling station. Notice the hose hooked to the side of the tank. The casting measures 1 1/4" long by 1/2" wide and 3/4" high.


Note that the figures are not included with any kit and that no castings are painted.

KSO: I have greatly enjoyed the Rusty Rail models I have painted. The detail fascinates me.

Oh, that's right, you painted these. Good authentic looking rusty grime and decay

Ooops - clarification needed. I did not paint these. These are off RR's site. I meant I have painted other castings of theirs. :-)
