Hurray !!

Finally got my first perfect print of the mine body delivered from ShapeWays !! The frame was already ok since before so this evening I could assemble, air-brush and weather first copy of this wagon. I also got my "multi-pack" of 4, approved today. Order is on it´s way so in a week or so I will be able to make a complete mine train!

It has taken a bit longer than I first thought, but from the fact that I never worked with CAD before, I am very satisfied. This was my first creation in CAD, from now on it can only get better ..:smile:

Couplers are Kadee HO whisker type. Wheels are from North Yard in NZ. Scale is 1/45, gauge 12mm (same as in HOm and TT scale). The material in the 3D print is called FUD (Frosted Ultra Detail)

If you want to order your own wagon, go to my shop at www.shapeways.com/shops/henrik-laurell-models
