Thanks for kind words. You will get it in Kolkata. I can ship it. I have few clients from Kolkata.

Hi Guys!

As a long time follower of this forum to solve many automobile related issues, I am thrilled to find people here interested in model railroads!

I have ogled some of the models posted here from childhood. As I grew up, I realised the scarcity of Indian Railways models - especially ones that were true to scale to our Railways and not a "compromised" solution by building on or from foreign railway standards.

So I got together a couple of dedicated friends and we started designing and 3D printing models. Now, 3D printing completely redefines the genre of scale models and the necessity to have compromised models!

Our models are 1:100 scale and stand/run on standard HO gauge. They are Indian Railways models without a single disproportionate part!

Here's some of our stuff. Disclaimer : the videos are from the commercial part of our hobby and include external websites etc.

One of my favourite rockstars is also a huge model train enthusiast.

His trainset is just awesome! Have a look

There are a few other rockers that are equally into model railways. They tend to keep their affliction low key. Somehow Rockstars and model railway enthusiast are rarely mentioned in one and the same sentence.

The railway model set is truly amazing and fascinating to simply gaze at. Thank you for sharing. Hmmmm! I get this strange feeling that the railway bods are having more fun than aircraft hoarders like me :-)

Maybe now we know why he sang "Downtown Train", "Love Train"and "Last Train Home"? :-)

That's one stupendous lay-out! While RS is revered in the family ("You're in my heart & in my soul.." being an all time favourite), the British practice of knighting rock stars is nearing endemic scale!

That is a neat kit. Are working models too being built in India for modellers, on the pattern of the HO scale? Or are imported sets the only avenue for budding modellers?
