    I came across Miniprints a few months ago and what I have seen of these as used on fellow modellers layouts, they are great looking products once painted up.

    The prints come in three scales, HO, S and O and range from $5.00 USD and up, depending on the model and scale.

    In fact I just ordered 7 different items from their vast range of 3D printed models/detailing items.

    This pic of the home page shows an assortment of models that can be purchased.


    There is even bag pipers for our Scottish friends !


    Then there are details like these IBC tanks.


    I must admit, I do like the 1950s and 1960s television sets. Here is a video of the 1950s television.



    Link to the online store : https://www.miniprints.com/

    I am looking forward to my items arriving ! :thumbs:

    Please note that I have no affiliation with the store or the owner of the business.

    Cheers, Gary.

    That's the easy bit, getting them to blow in the bag is the hard part ! :avatar::avatar:

    My items from Miniprints arrived yesterday !

    I must say that the detail on some of these little 3D prints is really nice and super fine ! Check these out...

    This is how they arrived in a neat snap lock lidded plastic container...


    This is what is in the box (or what I purchased). Miniprints through in a sticker and because of the time I placed my order, Bernard threw in 4 x owls !


    On closer inspection of each item...

    Garbage bags.


    Gas Meters.


    Gunzel (rail photographer)


    IBC Tanks.


    Owls.


    Shopping Trolleys.


    Same shopping trolleys on a 10mm square grid cutting mat.


    Traffic cones or witches hats.


    Trash Cans.


    Each item will require a little work, ie sanding or filing, then I can paint them accordingly.

    I'm super happy with the quality of these prints and I'm 100% positive all items shall find a place on the layout, well we will see about the owls !! ;);)

    Cheers, Gary.
