Fantastic! Would the parts shown become masters for conventional
rubber molds, or do you envision 3D printing as a production process?
I only ask because you added Archer rivets and I wonder if that is
something modelers would be willing to do (since the patterns on a
tank car are somewhat esoteric).

OK, I've been plugging away with 3D printing and here's what I've been working on:

I don't blog but have uploaded a PDF file explaining this project. View it at at least 100% to get the full benefit of the images.
