Version 1 of the tank is here. Other than the fact that I screwed something and the coupler height is off by about 1.5mm, I'm very happy with it. The railings came out just fine so I will proceed to add the side ladders.

Ditto. Have to go and ask the Aussie rolling stock experts if this is like anything Australian . . .

BTW, one thing I forgot to mention is that the tank body ends up having a lot of plastic powder trapped in it. This will be the case with all closed cars and it turns out to be a benefit as it increases the weight. I don't have a scale but would say that the tank is at least twice as heavy as the gon.

What I hope to be the final revisions are complete and I've ordered the new version. I hope to have it by mid next week and if I'm happy I'll make it available for purchase. You can see the changes here http://www.shapeways.com/model/141757/1 ... scale.html

The saddles I assume are part of a single piece?

I ask because I got to contemplating how an older-style car with underframe could be drawn up...

Everything (except the trucks obviously) is a single piece.
