As we near completion of the GWR Castle project, preliminary work has started with another builder on the 850 project. They are taking the 2D drawings and converting them to 3D which not only makes checking easier but they can be used to make the 3D printed lost wax patterns. Sample parts are shown below. The rods are nickel silver and very nice.
