N Scale Bottom Dump Trailer Success!

I received my first pair of 3d printed Trail King bottom dump trailers via UPS today.  I was very impressed with the print quality, and the model turned out as intended.  Of course, this was a fairly conservative model, without a lot of detail or complex parts.  It scales out nicely compared to my grain trailer, and a typical tandem axle tractor under the king pin.  I dropped them both into a jar of Bestine tonight, and will hopefully get around to painting them soon.  These will get a coat of white paint, DOT striping, and aluminum fenders.  Not a huge challenge compared to the grain trailer.

These are now available through my Shapeways store:
