I've just got back a model of a locomotive I had printed, and while I'm generally pleased with it the radiator details nave printed out incorrectly.

The strange thing is it has an identical radiator at each end but both have printed differently. It should be slightly recessed.

On end 1 it's slightly raised , though there is a recessed line marking the edge https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/_sj1Gm0EET7A/TWWUSm71NxI/AAAAAAAACNw/mjAjiqIWOWQ/s720/loco%20end%201.jpg

On end 2 it far too deeply recessed
