Built by the WP&Y shops, a total of three of these cars were placed in operation, 1200 – 1203. Being home built each car was unique, but followed a standard “plan” when built. In later years, all three cars had side wings installed to widen the deck of the cars, this model represents this later wide deck version.
These cars varied in color and appearance in many ways photos have shown the cars black with white lettering as well as Orange with black lettering.

Due to the fact that 3d printing is a relatively new and in many ways experimental manufacturing technology and the fact that many of the models I manufacture push the limits on what is able to be manufactured, not all models can be successfully printed every time. Every effort is made to avoid any issues during the design phase, however, from time to time we do have unforeseen issues during the manufacturing process. We (Shapeways and I) appreciate your patience when issues do occur.
Our products are printed in a Photopolymer Resin. This liquid resin becomes a solid when exposed to UV light. For those further interested in the scientific details, here is the Wikipedia article with the details.
As such, it is highly recommended to paint all models as part of the finishing process or at minimum prime them to protect the model from continued exposure.
When you receive your items you may notice some small post-production markings on the products. These are unavoidable in the production of the models. A small amount of work could be necessary to prepare the model for finishing.
Items that are labeled as “in stock” are ready to be packaged and shipped within a week of purchase.
Items that are labeled as “backorder” are produced on demand and will take 1-2 weeks to produce and ship out.
We strive to produce merchandise of the highest quality. 3D printing is a relatively new manufacturing process and we are exploring the limits and boundaries of this technology. We aim to provide our customers with consistent quality; unfortunately, when exploring new technologies, there are times where this might not be the case. Due to the hands-on nature of the production and post-production; issues may arise. Please feel free to contact our customer assistance department with any issues or concerns. We appreciate your continued patience when issues do occur going forward.
