    This is the first functional test print. It still needs details such as the roof walks, but I needed to check that the shell fits the frame and that the trucks and couplers fit and work OK.

    Is the frame a Marklin frame or one of your own design?

    The frame is a 3D model I created, just like the shell, however it's printed using black resin instead of gray.

    Too cool! Love the use of micro mask. Now I know how to use it!

    Man, that looks great! A little small for me, but incredible modeling.
