NZ120 Oil Burning JA

Today sees the arrival of a Ja class (Oil Burner). Printed by Shapeways in Frosted eXreme Detail. The material is a good step up from Frosted Ultra Detail, allowing a smooth finish. Incidentally, the tender was printed 2 months earlier in Frosted Ultra Detail, before FXD was available.
The handrails will need to be added, the top plate on the tender is brass as are the Brass etched handrails on the tender. I purchased these from Trackgangproducts, but are a MarksModelWorks product.
Brass handrail, couplers & wheels here

The chassis is a 4-8-2 Light Mountain (Currently $50USD+Freight)
Available here Bachmann Parts Website
