This model is an OO / HO Scale Barge, based off of the barges called Bob and Steve from the classic series of Thomas and Friends. The barge has a flat bottom so it can rest on any surface easily. The model in the photos was printed by my own home 3D Printer, so it is rougher than the model you will recieve if you buy one from here on Shapeways. The model you will recieve is unpainted of course, but can easily be painted in any colour you like, for example if you want to be acurate to the TV show then a red top and black bottom will be easy to do and look great.
You can buy this model in either plastic or sandstone. I have never printed in Sandstone before but from what I can gather, it should be perfect for these uses!
I realise this model may be a bit expensive because of Shapeways' pricing method, so if you would like a smaller, cheaper version, you can find that here: https://www.shapeways.com/product/BYGNJAWWJ/oo-ho-ertl-t-f-barge-small
