TTNut trucks?

Postby ctxmf74 » Wed Oct 20, 2010 1:10 pm

I notice that when we order a car with trucks the trucks only cost about two dollars more but a single pair alone costs over four dollars so I'm guessing the combined shipping is the reason. So I was wondering if the trucks can be offered in a lot of 10 pair shipped as a unit to keep the price lower? and can they be made in the optional black plastic with the same mechanical properties?...dave

Actually shipping is 100% free - the cost difference is the "startup". Every time a new part is produced, there is an up front manufacturing fee of $1.50. Put multiple parts on one file and they consider it one part so only one up front fee :) I also added a $0.50 discount if both trucks and body are ordered together (the markup on the trucks is a few cents so the discount actually comes from the car body).

A lot of 10? Sure, I can do that. Black? I can do that as well - but black is more expensive (it's why I use white). Give me a little time.

I gotta hand it to Shapeways for making it easy. The detail and finish may not be quite up to a modeler's standards but their business model is phenomenal.

Talking of trucks, what of gold coasts wheels are best for all these new freight car offerings, 33 or 36 inch. About time I tried to build some of what I have bought

Not sure it is worth it Dave, the bonus of the slightly rough surface means that the paint I tried sticks like "what I will not say"

Is that good or bad??


As for wheels, I'm using 36" on the gon and tank and 33" on the 2 bay hopper. The 3 bay hopper will be using 36".
