I'm now offering the WSF-P material 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. Look out for a side-laddered version coming soon. My thanks to Mike Ozosky for photos of his 'cow/calf' combo using my 1040 & pup trailer models.

@train_guy . The 'lenses' are nail art jewels and the smallest diameter I could find are 1mm. I can get them on our UK ebay in a pack of 1000 and they can vary in size a little, so I tend to pick out the smallest ones in the pack. They can also very in quality, but a pack of 1000 is just a couple of pounds, so they're good value.

@alawishes Hi, and thanks for the photos. I like the scene, especially the truck/trailer on the weigh-bridge. Just something to note. It looks like you've put the rear tank 'end-cap' on the front, and also it is upside-down. The 'platform' is supposed to be towards the top of the ladder on the back of the trailer. The plain 'end-cap' should be at the front. Also, there is a pipe storage pole/hook that should be printed between the front chassis beams. Carefully cut this out and fit in the hole at the front of the chassis. Hope this is useful. Barry
