Got my first prints from Shapeways today on the Atlas wagons !!

I knew the ends were a bit out of scale, but not that the hole body was to small ... Back to the drawing board and try again!

First two pics below looks ok, but then you see clearly the difference between the one I made with the cutter. I measured them both just now and the correct is the previous handmade version.

Holding your own creation in your hand is a very special feeling. That I somehow totally missed the measures did not tone down the happiness one bit :smile: instead I feel even more keen to work further with this design. In a few days I will get also the chassis and the wheels (with a bit of luck...), in time for the next weekend.
