Re-scaling my work caboose

The chopped caboose (See June 2016 project post looked great in the Porter ore train, until I added 1/20.3 crew.

I couldn’t stand looking at the tiny caboose that the crew couldn’t fit through the door!

I used my 3D printer to make new ends and sides for the caboose.

Now the work caboose is true 1/20.3 as well.



Sweet! Did you do your own 3d cad and printing?

Yes. I use Autodesk Fusion 360, a powerful CAD that is free for non-commercial use. My slicing program is Ultimaker Cura. I have a Tevo Tornado 3D printer. I used PLA for this project.

Here is some photos with the grab bars back on:
