The High Definition Acrylate
material has a number of advantages.
It offers a surface finish,
a visual appearance and a level of detail close to the
It is also a material

The crate is designed
to fit directly onto the wagon frame. The addition of

The model is delivred in
its final state. On somes faces, however, there remain
"small pins" corresponding to the "scaffolding"
associated with the printing process. They can be sanded
easily with a nail file.
On some models there may
also be some small supports, see the red arrows on the

The glazing is made with
sheets of transparent plastics (Faller / Auhagen ...)
glued with UHU universal gel glue. Do not apply glue directly
from the tube but rather by taking small amounts of glue
with a thin screwdriver for example. Cyanoacrylate glue
is not recommended because it whitens this type of plastic.
The curtains of red /
white wagon are in Canson paper cut with scissors and
pasted behind the glass.
