Nathan M5 horn for Train

posted Mar 27, 2013, 7:13 PM by Jay Gross
Here is part for a newer diesel train. Our client had purchased a 1/8 scale part in plastic from another vendor, but it was too fragile and broke. We scanned the broken parts and fixed everything digitally in software. The sections were made thicker and deviated from scale is some areas for additional strength. Finally, the finished product was compared against photos of an actual horn and adjusted accordingly.  The finished model is around 1.5 inches long. The best source of information on this horn is found here: http://atsf.railfan.net/airhorns/m5.html
 

Here is the finished model.
