What in the name of all that is good and noodley is that going to be?

I have no idea what that is.  It's just Shapeways answer to why you can't choose you own build orientation.  They jumble a bunch of different projects together to fill the build area.

Not all the questions, but THE question. The answer to life, the universe and everything.

It's how they keep the cost down for individuals.  But they base the price on the mass rather than the build time.  So if you have a part that may fill the build tray but be only ¼ inch thick, such as a building side, their price goes through the roof.

 :? First: a question about Shapeway. Who they are and what they can do for someone who wants to scratchbuilt a building for their layout?

 ;) Second: a comment about the white painted lettering I saw in a photo of an NW2 B&O switch engine.
Based on my knowledge of yellow pigments, I suspect the yellow lettering contained some lead chromate; this was one of the most common ingredients in yellow paints for outdoor and long lasting uses.   I do not think it would fade to white no matter how long it was exposed to the sun light.
