Here is one of the first pieces of rolling stock that I converted from a Marklin european prototype car into a N.A. style boxcar. It's made of index card.

This is my first entry!

Here is my first rolling stock laser kit that I built. This is one of Rich's laser kits that I turned into a MOW car.





After looking at it closer I could do more with the trucks and couplers.

I have a cement container load and I thought I had some rails that I painted and detailed, but for the life of me, I can't find them now. I will submit my US Navy Helium car that I built out of a MTL 40' boxcar.

A new month and a very OLD car :woohoo: It must date back to the dawn of Z. Alfred Godfry made this box car.. It is a paper box car from Gorre and Daphetid- the origins of which has passed into the dust bin of memory.






Bottom view--Al weighted the car- paper glued to wood-- and is ready for trucks and couplers.
I have kept it in original condition as I recieved it.

This is an F? that I built out of index card to go over an old European Marklin diesel loco. This was the only way to get something North American at the time.

Two for one rolling stock entry... PA 50ft with straight sides gondola and my heavy duty 3 axle buckeye trucks along with my Ohio DE-650 115 ton capacity diesel electric locomotive crane with outriggers. Cab hand rails and carbody end grab bars are 0.3 mm DIA copper wire formed on a jig I made. The hook went flying across my office before I could install it so I need to make a new one. This model was printed out at Shapeways twice without any problems or failures. It has a key that adjusts the boom and hoist drums. It comes with a cab interior that you can paint appropriate colors before installing the cab. It comes with the option to have the outriggers in or out. I just submitted a smaller stl file to sell as a kit in my SHapeways store WITHOUT CHANGING ANY GEOMETRY OR FEATURES and it got rejected at final inspection just before printing the parts. I give up... Sorry Fred, they did the same thing to the final 250 ton Brownhoist crane that consisted solely of geometry that has successfully printed out many times before. This really bums me out….

Jon,
That's not right! I want one of those! That's a really nice crane! I guess you made that one too. I guess I'm going to have to fine out where you live so, As soon as I fine out I'll be there so I can take that one home to Ohio where it belongs. I seen one the other day down by the Ohio River Near the tracks in Maysville Kentucky. just across the river from me!!!!!! :woohoo: !

Glad you like it Walt. It does suck.... This is not the first time I've run into this problem with Shapeways. This file had two cranes in it (the other one I have painted UP yellow but waiting to make decals before final assembly). I made it one crane in the file and didn't change a thing (just took duplicate parts out). I do plan on sending the CEO my grievances (because I've brought it up with customer service and they really don't care to actually address the problem) and how unprofessional this is and how it has happened many times over but I'm still to mad to write a constructive letter....
