Virginia & Truckee Miner's Caboose No. 9, N scale standard gauge (9mm)
This is for the body, floor, roof and some details only. Builder will also need to acquire their own couplers, trucks (V&T trucks available from Panamint Models on Shapeways) and wheels (Fox Valley wheels recommended) and brass etched platform railings (available from Republic Locomotive Works on line.) Model is fragile, especially end steps. It is recommended the printed vertical supports be replaced by brass wire.
GENERAL NOTE: This is a craftsman kit consisting primarily of 3D printed acrylic plastic parts. These parts are NOT as strong or flexible as the “engineering” plastics many of you will be used to in railway models, nor even as strong as conventional injection molded styrene. HANDLE THE PARTS CAREFULLY TO AVOID BREAKAGE. Wash the parts in isopropyl alcohol aided by a soft brush. Very thin parts of the kit can be strengthened by applying very small droplets of CA adhesive with the tip of a pin or needle to the back of the thin area after the parts dry.
