This product is an OO9 (or HOn30) Scale open coach, based mainly on the coaches Ada, Jane, and Mabel from the Skarloey in the Railway Series, which themselves were based on the open coaches from the Talyllyn Railway. It is Narrow Gauge, and comes in two variations. This variation has 2 sets of steats in the middle just like Ada, Jane, and Mabel in the Railway Series, while the other has 3. The longer version is avaliable for a more realistic or TV series style version of the open coaches. The longer version can be found here: https://www.shapeways.com/product/KPMWR7YW6/oo9-skarloey-talyllyn-open-coach-long
The model is available in both Versatile Plastic and Fine Detail Plastic, depending on your budget and the finish you would like. Please note that the photos shows are test prints by my own home 3D printer, so any imperfections you can see will not be present on your model if you buy one from Shapeways.
I am also trialling a Print At Home service, where you can order items from my store directly from me. It will cost a bit less than here on Shapeways, and will be printed by my own 3D printer here at home. They will be shipped out from Australia at buyer's expense, similar to Shapeways. If you would like to ask me about printing any of my items from home, please don't hesitate to contact me via the social media links below!
These models come unpainted, but are relatively simple to paint however you choose. The chassis are the same as on all of my other OO9 rolling stock, so please check out the video I did a few years ago on my YouTube channel for all the information regarding what wheels and couplings are best. The video can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9BqxAVdCQQ
I also have a Bandai Scale version of this coach available, which is slightly bigger but still runs on N / OO9 scale track. That item can be found here: https://www.shapeways.com/product/2T79VPTUC/bandai-scale-oo9-skarloey-talyllyn-open-coach
