Clever Creek Miniatures is not a serious business venture; but rather a couple of NScale modelers that were asked if they would make their models available to the public. We both hold full-time jobs and work CCM as a side hobby. Sometimes we struggle with keeping up to the demand or simply need a break over the weekends. Please do not expect the level of service and response time provided by larger hobby sites.
We specialize in designing and 3D printing N Scale logging and industrial equipment. Our philosophy on creating our models is to make them recognizable for what they represent, well enough for our model railroads. The models are not always 100% prototypical but utilize identifying features to make them identifiable as the make and model of vehicle they represent.
Most of the equipment we design, and build is inspired directly from the logging operations on Vancouver Island, British Columbia from the 1970s and 1980s with a little modern and older models thrown in. A lot of equipment used for logging has extremely long-life spans and examples of old trucks and equipment can be as much as 40 years old and still working in the woods.
All our projects continue to be works in progress, and we continually tweak the designs, adding details or making modifications as we learn more about the prototype equipment. Most of our equipment is printed in a single piece so they cannot be re positioned. However, a couple of the items are printed in multiple pieces and require some assembly, but this has been kept to a minimum.
If you have any questions about the models, we have or are interested in something that you don’t see in this catalogue you should feel free to contact us.
Our models are printed on an Elegoo Mars 2Pro, Mars 3 and Saturn resin printer. The models come unpainted and removed from their supports. The models do require some clean up prior to painting.
