HO 1/87 Dry Bulk Trailer 02 (bigger tank)

HO 1/87 Dry Bulk Trailer 02 (bigger tank) 3d printed Miniatures Vehicles
I'm now offering the WSF-P matrial option as this gives a fairly smooth finish, but does lose the sharp edges of features. Recent communications with customers suggest the White-Strong-Flexible material is more than suitable, but does need a primer-filler (Auto-shop, 'Duplicolour') paint to smooth out the 'powdery' finish. This is similar to my '02' model but with a larger diameter tank to closer match the newer/bigger prototypes more accurately. Please see the image of new (left) and old (right) trailer CAD models side by side for comparison. The wheels are now 'fixed' to prevent manufacture problems. My thanks to Prof. Bill Guegold for pictures of his trailers. I look forward to seeing them all painted.

@Gloriousnse Thanks for the photos and info on finishing. Was this a WSF or FD print? Could you please email a couple more photos but in a 674 x 501 (or similar) resolution please? I'd like to add them to the images on the model page if that's ok with you. Thanks, Barry.

Finished with some light cleaning and sanding, some silver (over a white undercoat) spray paint and a couple of small detail decals from spare Microscale sheets to represent builders info. Ready for the first delivery of plastic pellets to our transload spur...
