    Is there any plans to do a Sydney R1, preferably in 1:76 scale? Would be awesome!

    • modeltrams says:

      Hi Karl,
      Yes I really hope to get around to an R and an R1 (possibly even an R/R1). Weico are no longer producing their white metal kit so I would be happy to fill that gap.


      • Karl Penrose says:

        Excellent, I would certainly be up for a couple.of the R1s.
        The reason I mentioned 1:76, would be so I could run them side by side with, or use the mechs out of the Cooee 1:76 scale W6s. Would be happy with HO though too.
        Anyway, I’ll keep an eye on your page for any updates.

    I am interested in the HO, O & P Class Trams, are they supplied complete ?
    (Painted etc)

    • modeltrams says:

      Hi Phil,
      No, these come straight from Shapeways in Raw 3D print form. You will need to paint and assemble them and supply trucks and poles.
      Kind regards

    Hi Joseph

    I just received my model from Shapeways. I didn’t get a base plate such as is shown at Was I supposed to? If not, where do I get one.

    Also, the box should come with a warning about the fragility of the frame. I removed it from the box very carefully but one side still cracked in my hand.

    Thanks for taking this on – I’ve been missing Weico!!


    • modeltrams says:

      Hi Jon,
      Did you order the Sydney O class or P class tram?


      • Jon says:

        I actually bought the P intending to buy the O, but that’s my carelessness, If I can get the P going I’ll definitely buy an O.

        • modeltrams says:

          Hi Jon,
          You don’t actually need the separate chassis for the P. The P is designed to fit a standard Bullant motor truck and dummy truck.
          I hope you enjoy your model.

  4. Today I got my P class model from Shapeways. Great work!!!

    Any idea about the exact colors in RAL or Tamiya palette or other color palettes?

      Hi Reinhold,
      Happy to hear your P class arrived. I usually mix my paints from a basic set of primary colours but I have been told the following commercially available paints are suitable for Sydney trams:

      cream – Humbrol 74
      green -Floquil light green

      Hope this helps.
