Product Description

This end is based on a CPR prototype. 

Drawn to reproduce detail in HO scale, the digital part was scaled to full size and then reduced 1/48th. 

It is not clear whether the details that look well in HO scale will look as good when enlarged to proto 48. 

It is too large to fit the bounding box for the highest detail material, so one is obliged to use frosted ultra detail, which is pretty good.   

​Given the foregoing and the cost of the part, in my view it probably makes sense to print one end, modify it to make it more suitable, and then use it as a prototype to make copies in resin
