Order Directly from Shapeways below

Tony Burgess asked me if I could do Beer/Soda bottles in HO scale. My feeling was .. yes .. just not sure how well they will print as these would be SMALL!! I went ahead and gave it the “old college try” .. as it were and this is the result. I only offer them in FXD .. again .. these are so small that I think FUD would be a problem.

.. and .. Ta Da! The Featured Image at the top of the page are them .. with a penny! Success!

Note: You can see loose bottles and others fallen over in the photo – this was Ver 1. The little sprues that I used to connect to the bottom of the bottles were just a bit small. I increased the size of the sprue from .4mm dia to .6mm dia. We can’t have all this disorganized falling about after all! This printed for a while until Shapeways started saying they wouldn’t print. Version 3 followed .. version 4 .. and now version 5.

The featured image is Version 2. I will leave that up until I get a copy of the latest version.
