This is a 45' LPG, tri-axle tank trailer. I have uploaded some photos of the tri-axle and the 'Pup' trailer models. You'll find both the twin axle and a 'pup' version on my HO pages, and I've also released an S-scale version of the twin-axle. I've created a small towing hook on the rear to hitch the pup to and create a 'cow/calf' combo. The WSF material does require a certain amount of preparation to get a smooth finish. I've used an auto-paint, filler/primer and fine grit wet and dry to get a smooth finish on the grey model.

@baztrains does the paint stick on the polished surface with dull primer coating apply first before finishing with gloss paint? the grainly finish is hard to come in glosely finish...I can't find the primer you suggest in my hobby store.

@stukamilov Shapeways should have supplied you my contact details by now. If you have them, can you email me please? I would advise against the polished versions. Although it makes the surfaces smoother, it does also remove the crisp edges off the detail. The surface will still need primer/filler paint, so there is no real advantage. But I will add this to the options so you can try it for yourself.
