1:1000 Hex Train Set
This is a set of interlocking Hex-layout train tracks and elements meant to replicate 1:1000 scale Passenger Trains, imagining hexes at 30 meters and elevation changes at every 10 meters. Included in the set are curve tracks, Y-tracks, X cross tracks, two bridges and risers. A tunnel flat section is included to allow you to model a track going under a 10-meter rise.
The files are provided in both the original Pepakura format for ease of rescaling to match existing hex maps sizes and PDF format for users who cannot access the Pepakura Viewer. In the files are included full instructions and high-resolution maps, with instructions on how to incorporate your own map modification files into the printable file.
The files are presented in a compressed form, using .zip compression routines. An appropriate unpacking utility will be required to access them. Some files inside of the package are in .pdf format and will require a viewer capable of opening and printing them in order for them to be used to their original intent. In order to modify the texture files, an image editor capable of editing .jpg files will be required. The main model file is supplied in .pdo format, which requires a working copy of the shareware software Pepakura Designer © 2012 Tama Software. The software is available at their site: http://www.tamasoft.co.jp/pepakura-en/ and is free to download and use. A licence key is not required in order to print or modify textures. Pages are laid out to support Letter format, of 8.5” x 11” (21.59 cm x 27.94 cm). While it is possible they may be printed on A4, some modification to the layout may be required. Note that to create the models to the stated scale, no resizing through printing should be done.
