    WWW.ATSFNSCALEMODELS.COM announces an ATSF 8500 gallon oil tender.
    Tenders will be available assembled and primed but still have to be painted black and decalled.
    The archbar eleptical spring trucks feature all wheel current pickup (modified FVM wheels).

    The shell and floor are cast resin and the trucks are 3D printed.
    Separate phosphor bronze etchings.
    3D printed shell and floor are also available directly from Shapeways.

    For more information and ordering see the website.

    I can't say enough good things about Dirk's tenders. He mixes the best materials properties and purchased parts rather than trying to make everything out of one material. It's a lot of extra work to get things like handrail etchings, but they are there.

    That's a photo of the model, not a 3-D rendering, so if you 've been hosed by a poor Shapeways print, this is not the same thing at all.
