ChicagoTrains @DaminKeenan I would offer it in FUD but the HO dimensions exceed the bounding box for FUD and can't be printed in that material. A cab car will be released shortly.
ChicagoTrains @surftram20 I did a preliminary re-scaling test and it seems to work in N. I just have to adjust a few details to get it to clear shapeways' design tolerances. Expect it to be available in the next few days
ChicagoTrains @surftram20@surftram20 I'm not sure how well the shells will scale down so I can't say with any certainty that they can be made into N scale. The fluting on the sides may be especially difficult to scale properly. However, I will work with it and see if it is possible.
ChicagoTrains @Edg3rush3r Yes, the cab car version will be available shortly after I finish up a couple more things on it.

ChicagoTrains @billchiwest Thank you for your interest in my products. To power these cars, I would recommend either a NWSL Stanton drive or a Hollywood Foundry power truck of your choosing. The frame can be built using 2mm thick styrene (There are support tabs in the shell interior to hold the frame in place). As far as I know, most of the wood cars used trucks with a 6'6" wheelbase with a 33" wheel diameter. So far, i have not yet built anything for the Chicago West Towns Rwy. but I do have a CA&E 450 series car nearly completed. More Chicago-area cars are planned.
