    I am wondering about getting some NP tenders made up. I have a couple GHQ Oil & Coal tenders and they are excellent models, and fit the Bachmann USRA short chassis like a dream. I would like to refit a lot of my steam with more NP-correct tenders... anyone here do 3D modeling who could take the task? I see a bunch of cool N scale stuff on Shapeways, just not yet these... honestly I could maybe do it, but I have too many hobbies as it is LOL

    At this point I'd even settle for some tender dog houses (which I did not see on shapeways)

    (the GHQ tenders are good but often have casting issues and too many parts, thinking a 1-piece print is the way to go)

    contact James, he might be able to do these for you, or any other designer on SW that does tenders.

    My company, Out of the Box can do it, PM me the details. I'm already working on something similar for a museum.

    Wunderbar! I'll post if the project advances; I know a dozen modelers who would want these if they're up to snuff!
