FCALV Models designs are based on real practices and, in some cases, specific prototypes, but except where specified, our kits contain a sure amount of freelancing.
After months of developing and testing we must sadly give up our attempts to restart FCalv with the 3D printing technic. It will get better in the future, but today the 3D printing technic is just not ready for mass production. It is a fantastic tool for making a few items, but not as a tool for going into serial production. To many is getting back with errors and we can not assume customers will pay for that.
As of this our site will end at 1/1 2012. We have not giving up, when new options arise in the future, we will be there again!

Well, it is almost two years since the abrupt end of our first intent and we have some good news to announce:
We are working hard on a completely new range of narrow gauge stuff and expect to be ready to go by the end of November this year.
None of our old kits will be available again but instead many new interesting pieces for the narrow gauge scene from rolling stock and parts to scenic accessories will come.
Another important change is that we'll be offering a range of 3D printed kits and parts but not in the broad spectrum of scales we did before. (We are sorry for that but 3D printing technology is not ready yet for producing at reasonably prices the thin walls smaller scales would requiere)
This time we'll focuss on the following scales :
Still in an experimental phase :
