Here is a prototype sample of a 40’ Southern Pacific RPO coming soon from outoftheboxmodels.com
The prototype is 3D printed. We are planning offering this in resin but it won’t have interior
Excellent. I look forward to seeing this.
Could be a good start for a model of caboose 475
Bremner that is also in the works
Nice looking car. Did not Virginia and Truckee buy one or two of these from SP?
Where did SP operate #475 after the rebuild? I did not know that it was originally a Hell On Texas Contractors car. How late did HOTC sub-lettering persist?
Brokemoto, here is what you want to know
What machine and orientation did you print this on that made the roof so short?
... and what was the flavour of pie you had for dinner...??
Heh, model looks good too!
By San Bruno Branch, I should assume that the writer means the old SP Main on the Peninsula? Interesting that the car ran there, as I was a regular customer of the SP there. I rode the Schoolbus on Rails.
As the article stated that SP retired in at Merced, I would assume that it operated in the Sierra Nevada, as well?
Thank you for the link.
We printed it on a Stratasys J750, but this was our first test print, Obviously there are some tweaks that need to happen before we offer it for sale.
Are you going to offer it in the 'caboose' version? I need one of those! Beautiful model!
What is the target release date for these? I'll be having at least two...
Jeff, we plan too. Want to get the kinks worked out on this one first.
Taylor we are shooting for 1st of the year.
Nick, didn't realize this was you until after I posted. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help!
Have you considered doing the SP repeater air cars?
