Doesn't matter, I've got (a) PK

Classic 1990s advert...

Anyway I've been working on making a PK class wagon via 3D printing for a while. PKs are basically shorter standard UK class intermodel (i.e. container) wagons. Introduced from 1980 they're essential for any 1990s model. Although now coming to the end of their working lives (the introduction of the new IP class may be fatal) you can still see upgraded versions about - e.g. PKK and PKS.

I've created one in 1:120 scale for 3D printing - this time with a few differences:
Playing around in Tinker CAD:

The idea with this 3D Model is for it to be able to be cast using RTV and Epoxy resin. So there's no enclosed spaces as such (although the end pockets for the couplers will need to be filled in). I've never done this before so it'll be a bit of a learning experience! This model is fairly basic as a result, additional details (e.g. the shunters stanchions) will be added later. I've not ordered a print yet but will do so in the new year. You can get one here


  1. Very cool, no worrys about garlic on the breath with PK in your pocket :)
