About this Product
Currently still in the design phase. This model is based off drawings of WP&Y's Low Boy flat Car #1200. This is version one, a one piece printing to see how accurately this model can be printed. This Version also has no built in coupler boxes to allow any coupler to be installed and tested on the model. I am planning to eventually release 2 or 3 versions of this model.
The first prototype of this model has been printed primarily to check clearances and mounting of trucks and couplers. I plan to use Kadee 158 whisker couplers with this model and am designing a minimalist box for them to allow maximum clearance of the trucks. We tested the model in consist with Blackstone models cars and locomotives and found that it is in need of at least 1oz of additional weight for good tracking. we also found that as designed it will Just go around an 18" radius curve, the web's of the two inner most I-beams just barely rub. At this time we do not plan to change the design of the model to account for this, as we feel that those who will need the ability for this curve will be slim and able to trim them ever so slightly when it is needed.
