3D printed railroad road trailers

Thought I'd send some photos of the 1636 dry bulk trailer model I've created on Shapeways. After a good cleaning in hot water and Isopropyl Alcohol, I used a Rustoleum grey primer aerosol and then painted the tyres, hopper pipes, tail-lights and mud-flaps with enamels. Barry

Very nice Barry. Lots of nice details on this one. How much is it?
Do you think it could be gently sanded to give a smoother appearance?

Ryan. Thanks for your interest, and I think you should be able to sand this a little smoother if necessary, but to be honest, from a foot or so away, they look fine. If you want to see more of my N-scale railroad/road vehicles, please go to the Shapeways website. Search for "N scale dry bulk, LPG or MSW trash" and this should find my designs (designer name is baztrains). Once you've found one model, look in the top right of the page and click on the button with the double arrow. This will take you to ALL of my models. You can then use the shop selection filter to find the particular scale you're looking for. If you have any problems finding these, message me and I will send you a link. Hopefully you'll find more of my designs that could easily find a place on your layout or diorama. Barry

Oooh.  I can hear traffic backing up at N scale Flexi Flo terminals all across the northeast!  Nicely played!
