Its passed the Shapeways design rules and the first print is ordered.  this is always the nervous bit as you never quite know whether it will print.  :)

In the post today the test print of the HOCT load and a KFA print by MH models.  On first examination the HOCT looks good and i'm now going to look at preparing an etch for the railings and other parts.

A dusting of undercoat to show up the detail.  I have not rubbed down the model yet as I'm currently interested in CAD detail and measuring up for a photo etch.
