ihphobby @shurlock1The material is a bit brittle. The shell is a little thinner than we wanted because N scale mechanisms are large. So, you have to take a little care in handling it. Use super glue to put it back together.

ihphobby @EMDSD14R The material does have some very good free-rolling properties. Snap your wheelsets in place and make sure they roll freely to the touch. If there's a little resistance, take an appropriate-size drill bit and, twisting it with your fingers, clean out the bearing a little. Then, replace the wheelset and check again.

ihphobby @nemesisx81 Hey Tyrone, the coupler head is correct and it's facing the right way, but we'll take another look at the shank.

ihphobby @berto775 Thanks, Berto. Don't hesitate to send feedback on the 3D parts in case we miss something, which certainly can happen! Note also that we are also able to lower the price a little on the R44 frames by grouping the parts differently for printing.
ihphobby @berto775 Berto, let us know about the problem fit areas and what you had to do, so we can fix them. Thanks!

ihphobby @berto775 Actually, we had a request for the correct NYC couplers recently from another customer. He sent photos. We'll do a correct coupler as soon as we have some time. Watch for updates.
ihphobby @berto775 It might be better to just make the correct couplers. We'd need some help with that, though.
