  • Rusty Robot

    Hi everyone.

    For a few years now I’ve been maintaining a modeling blog called “Rusty Robot”.

    I started in the hobby working in 1/35 scale, making sci-fi dioramas and conversions.

    In the past 18 months, I took the plunge in the HO scale world and haven’t looked back since. Unfortunately some of my HO scale posts were lost in a database error, so forgive the lack of HO content. I am currently knee deep in my latest project, a tribute to George Sellios’ F&SM.

    If you are interested check it out here and subscribe at the bottom of the page if you would like!

        Well, you left me hanging for your next 3D printing video!

          I hope it helps! I will try and produce the next in the series very soon!

            Don't rush on my behalf, I just found it quite interesting. I have subtractive CNC tools, such as a small mill that can work metal, a desktop gantry router, and a laser cutter. I know a 3D printer is inevitable.

              Looking forward to your 3d printing. I have 2 resin printers and use them to make many objects for my HO scale layout from people to boats.

                Welcome Rusty,

                Seen you in another forum where you were looking for some FSM kits. I tried to register but for some reason could not. I have a few kits that I am not going to be able to build if you are interested, send me a message and maybe we can work something out.

                    Thanks for taking the time to check it out everyone. Very appreciated.

                    Beaver Creek - that’s great! I’ve printed people too. Are you designing them yourself? I’d love to see what your results are. Maybe you could PM or email me?

                      Rusty Robot they have all at this point been from Thingiverse. I am now starting to try and design my own stuff, but unfortunately I'm a newbie to designing people. I'm fine at designing objects (boats, crates, walls, etc) but not very good at items that are what I call more artistic. I have found so many great items on the share websites to print that just need to be scaled to HO. I have 2 photon printers. A plus and a mono x that I just love to use.
