My main hobby is model railroads, but I've always made model kits of planes, tanks, boats, spacecraft & road vehicles.

HO 1/87 Dry Bulk Trailer 11 - Heil 1040 Superjet
baztrains @jlwills42 I have had a few models made in HDBA material and it seems very good. It certainly doesn't need the amount of cleaning FUD/FXD requires, although the supports leave small 'pips' on the surface. But these can be removed fairly easily. Creating 3D models can take many hours. For a one-off sale, you'll probably have to commission someone to make this for you.
baztrains @jlwills42 Hi Jon. I would just advise care if using a grit/sand-blaster. You may take off the sharp edges to some of the smaller details of the model. I have tried the 'polished' version of WSF, and have seen this effect, although I do understand the polishing and blasting processes are different. Have you thought about one of the self-levelling primer-type paints, to smooth the surface of the WSF material? regards, Barry
baztrains @skiefer901 Hi, and thanks for your interest. Can you send me an email through the Shapeways system and I'll respond to this? Thanks.
baztrains @nkpman Hi nkpman, I've only just noticed your question, and don't think I've responded to you. Can you send me an email through the Shapeways system and elaborate on your question please? I'm not sure what you're asking. Thanks.
baztrains @nmaniac You are correct, it comes as one-piece. You can easily remove the wheels if you would prefer to fit Promotex or Herpa axles. I've cut off the 3D-printed wheels with a razor saw and drilled through the 3D-printed axle with a pin-vice. This leaves a 'tube' to pass the Herpa axle through. Hope this is helpful.

N 1/160 Wheel Mask 36 Inch Dia
baztrains @ppfoten211 The part masks the wheel surface that touches the rail, & the front face of the flange. The axle points cannot be masked, as you would need to suspend in thin-air, a cap over the axle-point. Or have webbs or sprues holding this cap, but these would then be in the way of the paint that needs to get to the face of the wheel.

baztrains @ekapus I'm pleased you are happy with the model and hopefully I can tempt you back with some of my other designs. I'mmafraid I don't know if anyone makes a fixed version, but if you want to email me via the Shapeways site, perhaps this is something I could create and add to my designs. I wait to hear from you.
baztrains @jmarley76 Thanks for your comment and the photo. I'm glad you are pleased with the model. Barry

baztrains @fbf2bdf If your model did not have the roof walkway, please contact Shapeways with details/images, as it sounds like a 'mis-print'.
baztrains @thomstoc Hi, the models are printed in white Nylon powder. You'll need to paint them. Depending on the quality of finish you're happy with, you can spend as much or as little time as you wish, on this. I found that using an auto (car) filler/primer paint and rubbing down with sanding-sticks gave me a good enough finish to paint. You could also try self-levelling primer/paints.
baztrains @SethNeumann Hi Seth, sorry for the late reply, I hadne't received any notification about your enquiry. The two ned-caps to close-off the holes at the front and rear of the tank are un the underside. They are on two short sprues to hold them away from the underside so you can snip them off easily. Just CA them to the body.

1/144 Shuttle MLP & Crawler
baztrains I felt the Shapeways price increase on WSF material made it un-affordable. In 1/144 scale, this is a large model that uses a lot of material in its manufacture. I have ticked the 'sell to the public' box.
HO 1/87 LPG tri-axle tanker, trailer 15
baztrains @Bnsf70ace Hi Mike, and thanks for your comment. I have been asked about this before. The only thing is, by creating a version of each model without wheels, I basically double the amount of models in my portfolio, which take a lot of maintenance. Most people who buy my models want a 'complete/finished' model they can quickly paint and add to their diorama or layout. The majority of people don't want to spend time finding wheels and axles to add. The minority who do want these at least have the option to remove the 3D printed wheels that come with the model and replace them. As the wheels are a small part in the design, the cost saving is insignificant. I hope this explains everything. Barry
HO 1/87 Shorty Dry Bulk Trailer 07a (pup & dolly)
baztrains @SethNeumann many thanks for the photo and your comments. Although I try to put enough detail on my designs to make a good representation when viewed at a 'model-distance', I appreciate there will always be people who want more detail. I've therefore tried to compromise for everyone. If people want to give the model a quick blast of paint and put it on their layour/diorama, they can. But for those who want to add etched ladder/walkways, extra pipework and better wheels/tyres, they have the basic model to start with. Regards, Barry
