Model Kit Components:
3D Printed Model – You can find details on how to order the 3D printed body from shapeways by clicking the following links:
Drop Centre Body Model and Truck side frames – http://shpws.me/Gau3
Power Mechanism – The tram has been designed to fit with the BEC maximum traction trucks. The body width and length have been slightly increased (only a fraction) to ensure comfortable fit and bogie swivel on these trucks.
MEMT maximum traction bogies have a 9mm diameter larger driven wheel and a 7mm diameter smaller trailing wheel. You can order these trucks here: http://www.bec-kits.co.uk/Trucks/bogies.htm
As these trucks are made to order you should let them know that the distance between the two bogie centres is 8 cm. The trucks arrive pre-wired together.
Trolley Poles – I use trolley poles supplied by Brian Weisman (Jason’s Brass Poles). His service is excellent and ships to Australia quite fast. Send him an email at email@example.com and ask for suitable HO trolley poles for your model. They are well priced too.
