QR Model

Today I picked up the QR test print from ShapeWays. I have painted it in undercoat and fitted bogies and couplers

I have deliberately not cleaned up the model, this is how it arrived. First the good side:

Then the not so good:

Note in the second picture I was testing two different bogies, the new ones that are coming with the FQX project on the left, Micro-Trains on the right. Couplers are Microtrains 2001 couplers.

The unpainted model looks like this:

The cutouts in the underframe are to allow the wheels room to swing while giving a nice low riding height which the 2001 coupler allows.

Once undercoated the detail stands out :)

A few things to tweak then it is ready.
