Hi all  I have just read that Q Kits used to produce a model of these locos, but since they are no more, I was wondering if anyone had any drawings of the prototype that could be copied for a kit to be made, I am not sure how popular they would be, but given Worsley works do the G611 type I wonder if anyone else (subject to finding the drawings) might be interested in this one as well.

A 3D printed E421 by Valve Design is available on Shapeways.  An E401 is also available from the Valve Design Shapeways store.


I motorised the loco using a custom built Bull-Ant mechanism from Holywood Foundry in Australia and detailed the loco with my own etched overlays and SSM custom decals.

I used a highbuild auto aerosol  primer-filler to compensate for the coarse texture of the Shapeways WSF material and used the etched overlays to improve the standard of detail.

Georgeconna's superdetailed one gives an idea of what can be achieved with the Valve Design model. http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/122675-shapeways-e-class/
