I see there's a kindred spirit on Shapeways too?

I saw that the other day. I don't believe it's manufacturable due to the size and details. Maybe it is, but I don't see most of the detail coming out properly.

I can easily resize the gon to T Gauge but that doesn't mean their machines can actually produce it.

Alex I just ordered a gondola as well so you are at least a couple of orders into your new job as a railroad magnate. just around another Billion should do it. Seriously though this is a major major advance in this scale, from idea to delivery was rapid and you do have to be congratulated and thanked for your input.

WE LIKE THEM!!

And I was really surprised at the prices. I bought two bodies and four pairs of trucks for a little over $60. That's like friggin' incredible, from design to finished product in what, three weeks?

Nice wagon! Congratulations!

But don't you want to produce the earlier shorter version? ;) As for me, I prefer II-III Epoch...

Maybe? We'll see where all this goes. I have a few models in mind that I want to get done - after that I may take requests.

Did some tests running "Snowflake" with power. My main concern was derailments while being pushed / pulled across points (this test is with no weight added) - test passed :mrgreen:
