Ruston LAT

16mm & 7/8th Scale Options Available – Choose Below

The simple RUSTON LAT diesel locomotive —

This is a very small model that is quick & easy to build at an affordable price.
The motor will drive a single axle, with the capability to add a Delrin chain drive & create a 4WD.

This model has been created with a 3D printer using Computer Aided Design (CAD) techniques. Due to the build process, some degree of hand finishing is required to achieve a really first class finish to your model.

This kit comes complete with the necessary 3D printed parts, along with wheels, motor & gears. Also included are all the metal parts required for axle bearings, etc. Together with all the screws, nuts and bolts need to complete your model.
All you need to complete the kit is glue (I recommend a Superglue), paint and a filler (body filling is not necessary, but does improve the finish of the model).

To make the locomotive operable, batteries and a switch will also be required. This can be as simple as disposable batteries and an on/off switch, but my models can also be built with rechargeable batteries and radio control operation. This choice is down to the individual builder. (We don’t believe there is room for RC on this loco, but are happy to be proved wrong…)

For further information regarding the building of my kits including electronic control, please refer to the BUILDING INSTRUCTIONS page.

I print the kits to order and this can take six to eight weeks depending on the workload at the time of ordering. Once payment has been made, your order will be processed and you will receive an email once the kit is printed and ready to dispatch.
