Using a laser cutter to make styrene freight car sides and entire kits is nothing new. Modeler’s Choice was doing it back in the 20’oughts (circa 2004), and Dave Hussey started producing some of the kits again and added new ones as part of his Cannon & Company line.
That is amazing to me. So the laser does not heat the plastic when it cuts into it? I never considered that it
was possible to "etch" styrene, but I can see how useful that is!
