There's NO way that's going to 3D print!

    Over the weekend I was thinking - n scale windshield wipers would be a cool detail. Can it? Yes, it can... :ROFLMAO:

    View from inside the cab:

    From outside:

    With some silver paint (and an ooops, snipped too much off of the engineer side wiper blade):

    Note, the only reason I consider these a viable print is because of where they're applied to the model. When printing such fragile pieces you really do have to consider day-to-day handling and mishaps. So these details, while being fairly delicate, would not typically see damaging force from either regular handling or the occasional derail/rollover. My sunshades however (not pictured) are probably not the greatest idea.

    I need to work out that connecting bar on the center wipers as you can see a slight bow on the underside of it. One tiny support in the middle should fix that.

    Have fun printing -Mike
