I'm afraid Shapeways have recently increased their prices on WSF models. Recent communications with customers suggest the White-Strong-Flexible material is more than suitable, but does need a primer-filler (Auto-shop, 'Duplicolour') paint to smooth out the 'powdery' finish.Improvements/corrections made 5/8/13. Please note, the supplied models are not comparible to an injection-moulded kit and will require a reasonable amount of cleaning and preparation depending on the level of detail and finish desired. Modelled from original drawings, so it's very accurate in size. I've added images of the 3D printed model (fitted to a Con-Cor tractor) and left the rendered CAD images too. The model now has two horizontal ribs, as per the prototype. Please note, the trailer with the Bulkmatic decals applied is a 1625V (the decals are prototypes).
