Was love at first sight. Ten or Fifiteen years ago, when I first saw the builder's picture, I knew that I need to model this charming little gondola some day. But the materials, available techniques and costs was way beyond me. Now, the 3D printing technology allow this model "come alive" with high fidelitty to the prototype at a low cost. She served the "Estrada de Ferro Perus-Pirapora" on Brazil, so she's a must for anyone modeling the intriging EFPP, an old brazilian 2ft. railroad. But she can make a pretty case on any HOn30 or OO9 freelance layout, hauling ore or any grainy cargo. It was designed in two parts, making the finishing process very easy. To complete the kit you will need a pair of couplers and two Micro-Trains axis for 9mm gauge. Other details as cargo and brake wheel can be added later. Look foward for other scale versions.
