looks good!   And saves me from trying to scratch a couple for my farm supply.  And it will give me time to get caught up on other projects I need to be working on.l  Thanks!

Cool, but I wonder if an etched underframe might be better?

This is definitely something needed, and something I will be in line for, at some point.

Does anyone else find it hard to pull the trigger on some of the rapid prototyping stuff?   I mean, I feel  like the technology is improving exponentially.   Even waiting a year might yield a much better result.   Dunno...NScaleAddict is brining me around though.   I guess once my layout gets a little further along it might help.  :trollface:  Although in this case probably not since my true hardcore "ag modeling" won't happen until my next layout.  :)  Still, I am collecting items for that  :|  but therein lies my ability to hold off.  8)  But I do fear that some of the items will disappear so there's that.  :facepalm:  I need a drink.

Doug,
I feel your pain.  My Shapeways shopping cart never goes below about 8 items . . . and these are going in it as soon as Mark releases them.  Of course, now that the wife has decided we need to remodel the kitchen . .  :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

Well, I'm attempting to go back to school for my masters...that's kinda like remodeling a kitchen.  :scared:  So, my hobby budget will be nil during that so I've been on a bit of a spree of late to stock up while I can.   But the Shapeways cart and the Traincat cart are always drawing me in.   I think I'm gonna set aside $50-75 for each and just get whatever I can get for that amount and be done for now.

I would like to see more finished versions of these alleged Shapeways purchases.   :P

I really hope the technology continues to evolve as well.  I spent most of 2013 designing, printing, and hoping to find time to paint my models.  It truly is a new addiction for me.  I have a list of dozens of models that I would like to design still. 

Nice work Mark, I was wondering when you would crank out some designs again.

We need more Ag items in our scale. I will be buying them!

Era-specific (especially 1960s) ag equipment flatcar loads should be on that list, though I am sure they're hard/impossible to research.
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.
