    Thanks, but probably not the kind of thing that scales down very well. Shapeways doesn't seem to be able to render skinny/tubey stuff very well.

    Thanks, but I think I'll pass. If I replaced the reefers with dry vans, I'm sure I'd feel compelled to add the nose cones. And I have zero idea how I'd go about doing that, lol.
