Hi AgepBiz,

What is the scale you used for these lovely cariages?
I've attempted to adjust your design to Gauge 1 (1:32) by applying a magnification of 196%.
It's currently being printed. Updates will follow soon.

Best regards, Rob

Hi. I aimed to make them close to s-gauge, but no exact measurements, since I intended to display them on my own printed tracks. Looking forward to the updates!

Hi AgepBiz,

After sucesfully printing the redesigned wagon, I have published my remix of your beautifull design.
Thanks for your design and enthousiasm.

Best regards, Rob

Can I remix these great models to put on a Trackmaster scale and chassis? (have to ask due to license)

Feel free to do so. I have updated the license for this object :)

Thanks! I've printed out one at ~85% scale at 0.15 layer height. It's going to be longer than a typical Trackmaster car, so it'll be interesting to see how that works. I just watched the video to see how you did the door handles...are those glued in? I love the detail but I'm skeptical that those would be toddler resistant. :) My bowden setup has some stringiness between the gaps, so it'd probably have been better (for me) to have filled those in and only leave an impression of the edges.

I assume the the filler is for smoothing the 3d printing layer ridges? How does that compare to using XTC-3D or similar resin to avoid the need to sand it? I mean the roof is one thing but it's very difficult/tedious to sand the detailed sides of these train cars.

The doors are printed as one with the body and are not attached on the sides, only the hinges, so filling the gaps will probably work well for you. The filler work great on big open areas, like the roof, not so much on a detailed parts of Annie and Clarabel, so I suggest you ignore Tamiya Putty, It hardens to fast and to much making it very time consuming to work with. I do not have any experience with XTC-3D or similar, so I cannot give you any input on that
