  1. 3D is fantastic for low production rate / boutique designers. After nearly 20 years of searching and scratch-building one off products, I am now in the process of bringing to life a range of armoured trains (American Civil war, WWI, WWII and the cold war). This adventure would not be possible without 3D printing. If you are interested, check my blog site for updates with an intended release for a WWII European based armoured train set in Nov, just in time for Christmas. :)
