New 3D Printed Items from IronPenguin

Hi All,

A  new 3D printed item to announce:

N Scale "Willie's Weenie Wagon" Food Truck with detailed interior, decals, LEDs for lighting.  $10.95

I've been working on this for over a month, trying to make it as easy as possible to paint the cooking area which required it to be a separate part to be inserted.
This meant there had to be a seam somewhere - top, bottom, back? I finally decided to make it slide in from the rear, with just the back side of the cabin needing to be glued back in place.

Stick-on decals provide menu boards to fit on three sides and front marquee. The primary Company name is "Willie's Weenie Wagon" (a homage to a local eatery) but includes 3 alternate names.

2 "PICO" White LEDs are included for lighting the interior.

The passenger area is hollow and a small piece of clear plastic for the windshield is included, too.

Nice idea and nice model.
But I'm not sure about the wheels printed with the body and without much of relief in the wheel well.  Would have been nice to have deeper gap, or maybe print the wheels separately.  One of those little things that to me make big visual difference.  Also I don't ever recall seeing a stepped hood on a vehicle like that.

Interesting, the stepping on the hood is only visible in the photo,  not on the model. Lighting trick, I think.

I'll probably work on the wheels in a revision.

Thanks for the input.
