I second that request - I'd like to find possible matching cars to maybe do some decal artwork.

Got the second version today and there are some problems. The step irons at each corner where all almost completely broken off from the packaging. The only way to prevent that is to make them much thicker. They're already too thick so I'm doing away with them. Also, the ladders which I spent FOREVER on, didn't get fully rendered. They're gone as well. I also need to redo the cylinders that make up the body as they are not very smooth. I hope to send the new version off tonight or tomorrow.

Perhaps the step irons should just be made from small wire and installed on the car. This would avoid the problem of making oversized steps, and from having to redesign the car.

Just a thought...

A bunch of people have suggested the same. I just wanted to test the limits for future reference. And I thought it would be cool to include as many details as possible (even if slightly oversized) for those who don't feel too comfortable with actual modeling.

Latest version is here and I'm happy with it. The ladders will be an add on for the individual modeler. I need to make 1 quick change to the truck and coupler screw holes and it will be ready to go.

BTW, as before the lighting is dim so detail is a bit easier to see.
