About nine days ago I place my second order of 3D-printed parts at Printapart.com and it just arrived this afternoon … wow, that’s really quick and what a great service.
The order consists of two wholestick trucks, that have been based on the models made by Greg Stephenson. I still needed to add more details like a winch and the nuts & bolts, but ordered a couple of them already to see if they would fit the little Roco chassis.
As you can see from the picture above and the ones at the end of this post, it is a perfect fit. It simply slides on without having to cut-off any parts and it does not require any glue. Furthermore, I have added four holes for the vertical corner posts, which can be made of square (1×1 mm) brass or styrene.
Finally, the model contains a pocket at each side, that will fit a Bachmann Short Shank Dummy Knuckle Coupler (N 42532) … no glueing required either …
