I have drawn one of four chimneys needed for a 1:43 scale model of a station, using Sketchup 8.
I changed the Sketchup 8 default 24 facets to 60 facets for a circle, to make the drawing as smooth as possible.
If the design is OK I will put all 4 chimenys on a common sprue.

The chimney and its cowl need to be as smooth as possible, so I propose to use Fine Detail Plastic.

Is fine Detail plastic the best material?

Can I paint this material?

Any other comments on whether this model should 3D print OK?

Many thanks for your help
