N Scale EMD F40PHM-2 (Metra)
DaminKeenan @Mirrlees I used Conrail Blue and GTW Morency Orange.
DaminKeenan @surftram20 I have enabled Black Hi-Def Acrylate for ordering.
DaminKeenan @surftram20 Yes, I have hear of them. But I haven't used their products.
DaminKeenan @surftram20 When I designed the model, I intended to use Microscale Kristal Klear for the windows. The model shown in the photos was finished by Jeff King. I believe that he used windows cut out of clear styrene. Another idea would be to use a piece of clear acetate (like the kind used in blister packaging) glued to the inside of shell.
DaminKeenan @screeh Please consider sharing photos or videos of the model when you've finished it. I'd love to see them!
DaminKeenan @screeh Thanks! I've added Frosted Extreme Detail (FXD) as one of the available materials.
DaminKeenan @huberperea An HO scale version is in the works. However, it will be some time before it is ready. I'll send you a message when it's ready. Thanks.
N Scale Texas Traction Co. Coach-RPO 350/351
DaminKeenan @orionfield I do not. The model was based on drawings published in the March 1967 issue of Traction & Models magazine. I don't know if the drawings were accompanied by an article (I just have the drawings).
N Scale Baldwin-Westinghouse Steeplecab
DaminKeenan @roconnor30319 Looks great so far. Thanks for sharing!
DaminKeenan @wstrouse Are you asking about the trolley pole and pantograph roofs, or the trolley poles and pantographs themselves? The actual trolley poles and pantographs are not 3D-printed parts; you would need to purchase them separately. Trolley poles are available from either Miniatures by Eric (https://www.miniaturesbyeric.com/collections/n-scale-trolley-parts) or GHB. Pantographs are from Kato (item #11-401).
DaminKeenan @velotrain I soak my models in Bestine for a few hours, then gently clean them with a soft toothbrush. Bestine is a thinner for rubber cement that is sold in art supply stores. As for the print lines, a little light sanding of the flat surfaces with an emery board or sanding stick works. Just stop and check your progress often so that you don't go too far.
DaminKeenan @Cnsm755 Your model turned out very nice. Thanks for sharing the photo.
DaminKeenan @fbb738a Yes, inside the roof would probably be the only option.
DaminKeenan @fbb738a The Bandai chassis 3 should fit as well with a little filing.
DaminKeenan @Skytop47 Your welcome and thank you for sharing a photo of your finished model.
DaminKeenan @theboss69 Congratulation on your 2nd place win. Thank you for sharing the photo of your model.
DaminKeenan @rking1688 Thanks for your comment. I look forward to seeing the finished models.
DaminKeenan @Skytop47 Thank you for your interest in my steeplecab design. The design includes three different roofs, simply use the one you prefer. The design includes sideframes; they are meant to fit into the slots on the sides of the Bandai trucks.
All-Weather Window for O Scale Diesels (4 pack)
DaminKeenan @facebook37 What are the height and width of the cab window openings?
DaminKeenan @facebook37 I will work on it and will let you know.
O Scale Derails (Flip-Type, Set of 4)
DaminKeenan @facebook37 I would need some measurements for the type of rail that you're using. What would the height of the rail be? What would the width of the rail head be? What would the width of the rail base be? Thanks, Damin.
HO Scale EMD GA8 w/Bachmann N Scale F7 Adapter
DaminKeenan @make22 I'm sorry, the CAD file is not available.
DaminKeenan @danamarseille Thank you for your feedback regarding the adapter. Please let me know what you find regarding using a GP35 or a GP40. I can go ahead and make the appropriate changes to the design.
CNSM 741 - 776 Silverliner series coach
DaminKeenan Just received one of these in FUD; it's a very nicely detailed model. What paints would you recommend for finishing it? Are there any decal sets available?

HO Scale EMD F40C (Milwaukee Road)
DaminKeenan @cnw400s Thanks. I would love to see pictures of the model once you've finished it.
MILW/CRIP Budd Bilevel Gallery Coach
DaminKeenan Would you consider offering this in Frosted Ultra Detail? Also, do you plan to offer a cab car to go with it?
The HO scale Milwaukee Road F40C is now available on my Shapeways shop! - http://shpws.me/M6oE HO Scale EMD F40C (Milwaukee Road)
The HO scale Metra F40C is now available through my Shapeways shop! - http://shpws.me/M6op HO Scale EMD F40C (Metra)
HOn30 GE 25-Tonner (Hook & Loop Couplers)
DaminKeenan @npautler Yes, I've created a version for knuckle couplers. It is available at http://www.shapeways.com/product/SJBM6WEE8
N Scale GE 25 Tonner (Non-Powered)
DaminKeenan @intermodalman123 I updated the listing to include options for FXD and Raw Brass. I don't know how well it'll print in these materials. I have ordered a test print in FUD.

Nn3 GE 25-Tonner
DaminKeenan @intermodalman123 I've uploaded a new version of the design. It has provisions for assembling into a non-powered, free-rolling, model using NWSL wheelsets and Micro-Trains couplers. It can be found at http://shpws.me/Ige2
DaminKeenan @intermodalman123 What chassis did you have in mind? I designed a powered version around a Tsugawa TU-7T (pictured). But the performance was not satisfactory.
DaminKeenan @intermodalman123 Certainly! I can also modify the design to enable it be built into a freerolling model. Would you prefer narrow gauge or standard gauge? And would you prefer the design include 3D printed wheelsets, or provisions for user-installed metal ones?
N Scale EMD F40C (Milwaukee Road)
DaminKeenan @Milw156 Thanks for sharing your pictures. I hope to see your models in-person someday!
DaminKeenan @Milw156 The Amtrak SDP40F, and as well as the Santa Fe SDF40-2, are in the works; but it'll be a while before they're ready.
DaminKeenan @Milw156 Sorry that I missed you as well. I was there early on Saturday and had to leave due to a family commitment. The finished model in your photos looks really nice. I haven't even started mine yet. I'll be at the O Scale Meet next week at the Lombard Westin as well as the Dupage NMRA show in La Grange on March 28th. In both cases I'll have my O scale switching layout on display. Please stop by and say "Hi" if you can.
DaminKeenan @Wuttermelon The decals were created by Jeff King. You can contact him through his website: http://milwaukeeroadtrainshop.com.
