The Class 43 Locomotive

The Class 43 locomotive is depicted at the top of this post. I’m designing the prototype model of the Class 43 in HO (1:87) scale, starting from the blueprint: I scan the drawing, I use it as a trace to follow ext_profile_fr.pngto draw the profile with Inkscape, then I import the 2D profiles into FreeCAD to be extruded and create the 3D model of the ext_profile_ax_view.pnglocomotive parts. Finally I combine the 3D blocks together to build the complete model to be sent to the 3D printer.

  1. Hi – I hope you can help me. My son Alan, who is registered blind, has started a small company making castings of iconic oblects. I am trying to find a 3D CAD model of the HST 125. Could you possibly help in any way, or do you know anywhere that sells a suitable drawing? Thanks – Chris

    1. Hello Chris,
      thanks for reaching out. Unfortunately my 3D models are not for sale or redistribution. Best Regards.
