NZR USL class

Over the past week I had been drawing up & printing out a Usl Log wagon, after the first few failed attempts at printing the flat sections I changed the print orientation to vertical & found better results. 
Since I'm going to want a few of them I've managed to get the print time down to 3 nights for the main body.
Bogies are standard bachman freight trucks.
Drawn up in Tinkercad

Main body & cradles & minor detailing printed, cradles sitting in position with a friction grip.

Decalling finished although the cradles still unattached, still to paint the body & bogies red oxide colour.

3 Wagons completed, 48 individual decals for the cradles alone.

With a relatively smaller load but still looking the part
