Product Description

OK, sometimes this 3D printing stuff still amazes me. This is a donkey engine I made because I found a really cool add on program for my 3D design software that made gears and I started playing around. Eventually I was trying to figure out the rivets on the boiler, and how to get the boiler hollow, and before you know it a day was gone and I had this donkey engine on the computer screen.

One of the small gears measures under 1/10 of an inch with my micrometer and it has visible teeth on the gear. And with my eyes I can't really see the rivets without a magnifier.

Originally I had planned to rust this out and put it in the middle of some bushes. I think I still will, but it will be a lot closer to the front edge of the layout. Some of the details are not correct, like the piping, which is not all connected) but I based this on some internet photos and not everything was clear cut. Maybe I'll spend the time to research and correct some details. Since I was planning on rusted and abandoned, I thought disconnected piping was OK.

Read about my 3D items, and links for cleaning and painting models at my website- www.dcyale.com/3d.html

If someone buys this model and paints it nice, please, please send me pictures. It needs the wooden runners (skids?) added to the sides of the frame. I thought that would look better with real wood. Also, this way, if its modeled derelict, you can have them missing.
