Ah yes, I forgot - I'm building a model of the Toblerone Express:

And again, more clockwork dragon.

Haven't posted in a while because life reasons, so to compensate I'm showing tonight's effort on painting the clockwork dragon (still a couple aeons away from being finished...)

Setting up for some modular action while travelling..

I've always been a Commodore fan kid back in the days, but I can only recognize the engineering genius that was Sir Clive Sinclair - RIP


The first draft of the interiors with the nearly correct measures and their fitting on the Bda 2/2 body.

Bda 2/2 out of supports (removed those without particular care, this isn't the final print anyway)

More pictures of the Bda 2/2, still on the supports but after washing with IPA

Further work on the Meiringen - Innertkirchen battery railcar Bda 2/2 in 1/87. After some "fine tuning" of the side tickness, it now printed well - and the interiors are fitting quite as expected. I will have to reduce the interiors of a couple tenth of millimeter, because I forgot to take the resin expansion into account :p but I am quite satisfied

Steak boosted

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. And what happens if life (or better, your 3D printer) gives you a failed print?
Stay tuned and you'll find out..

Went to the swiss transportation museum in Lucerne today, me and @codewiz met an old friend...

Since I mentioned I am into scale modeling and 3D printing, here is today's print - the interior of a swiss battery-powered railcar (Bda 2/2, produced by SIG and Sécheron in 1946) of the Meiringen - Innertkirchen Bahn.

Model scale is 1/87 (continental Europe H0). This is a test print to check dimensional tolerances, hence the "topographic" effect.
The rest of the railcar is being designed as I write.

Hello all,
I'm Alex, AKA Steak (and stylized as 5tr34k_).
@codewiz brought me here and I am still exploring what this is all about.

Quick facts about me:
- IT solution architect by day
- 3D designer and printer by night
- I ride a motorcycle
- I enjoy scale modelling
- In my previous life I was a musician
- general nerd/geek for all things tech/science
- board game and RPG geek
- old school trekkie
- it/en/de spoken (un peu de fr aussi)

I'll put this blurb in my profile too :D

I currently haven't got much to post, so I'll share a video of my motorcycle trip which included the lunch encounter with @codewiz

So, thanks to @codewiz I decided to join Mastodon in here. Let's see how it rolls...
