So, it appears that the designs would need to be redrawn for the larger scale since they need more detail and the cost would be about 7 times that of HO since Shapeways charges by volume of printing material. ....and now you know the rest of the story....
Cheers,
Dave

WOW, that was not what I had expected. I know the costs of many items I had ordered in the past had gone up in price, and glad I got them when I did. I have heard that from some designers as well, sounds like they are trying to make more for themselves (Shapeways that is) and not helping to sell a product. I also noted the type of material on many items has changed, used to get "extreme detail", now I see a lot of "plastic". That being said, I don't see any other company doing anything like this, except Walt at Rusty Stumps is doing pretty good right now.

I had ordered, one of several items, several packs of wheel barrows, as I even had a hard time getting some on Shapeways. His barrows are very well done.

Sorry I haven't been able to get anything posted for a while, but, I wanted to get your thoughts. I painted, if you can call it painting, all these resin, and one metal, castings using only soft pastel chalks. To me it gives a feel of dust laden shelving that isn't used that often. I kinda like it, but wanted some views of others. In some cases, like the bench, I will be adding some extra details. These all come from Sierra West Scale Models if I remember right.

Dave and Robert, thank you. Seeing the details close up makes you forget how small these are sometimes. Here is a reminder. Since I posted these, I refined them a bit with some A/I solution, cuts into the crevices a little better.

They look great. Lots of dirt and grime.

Just a couple of details I have been working on. Been a slooooow week. One is a set of steps I found on Shapeways, and really all I needed to do was weather it. The other are two rusted Grandt Line drums and a shelf detail from Sierra West. I tried my best to make sure the joint line on the drums were on the back side, and what-da-ya-know, I missed it on one. OK, I'll have to put something in front of it when I put it on the scene.

Just catching up here Tony. Your detail work is so very good.

Seeing this will be your first (new) diorama looking forward to the other buildings that go with it.

Thanks Jerry, I am open to ideas on supporting structures. I have a few in my head, but nothing set in stone yet.

The painting and weathering of your details is very good.

As you think, so will you be.

Thanks Jerry, that seems the basics. And what I had in mind. I just seem to think there might be something else out there I haven't thought of.

Thanks Rick, appreciate your comments.
