I'll echo Marquette - I'm in. Cheaper and SLIGHTLY cruder would also be ok.

I'm curious what our German buddies think as they will likely be a big part of the buyers......

I'm following this thread very attentively.
Unfortunately, student life doesn't allow anything which isn't absolutely neccessary for life. So I'll have to wait until I can afford new models.

Why no love for the B-7? It (and the AF-1) are some of the niftiest boxcars ever - and a number of different slogan letterings, too...

my suggestion only, but perhaps because due to the 3-D printing craze, TT is becoming a scale populated by exceptions? ie, things which are produced for HO and N markets because they are oddities, up or downscaled for TT ... a scale where a common-or-garden 50' PS-1 would be a blessing.

That's an excellent point Ben! The basics have been covered to death in HO and pretty much so in N, and even to a lesser degree in S, O, etc.. no one wants to do a 50' PS1 on Shapeways. Rob did the 50' Railbox, I was lucky to get a couple 50 foot cars from Sip Hartman in the Netherlands when he did his last batch (several years ago), but the only "common" 50 foot boxcar is a wood and cardboard one from HP.
