because of the price i made 2 wagons for a very low cost.
bogies, wagon coupling and buffers are printed, wheels come from the bay (20€ for 24 pieces)

Well Done.
It's great to see someone making their own wagons rather than just buying off the shelf.
Innovation and experimentation are what make this hobby so much fun, lets face it without them where would we be?
With so many suppliers dropping out of the hobby and the cost of freight/postage, more of us have to resort to our own devices to enjoy this great hobby.
Must admit that this is further strengthening my interest in 3D printing.
Bit better than my first attempt

Very nice! This is a small wagon I'm building to match couplings on little MSS steamer to the rest of my stock. It's laser cut sides on a 3d printed chassis. It hides an electric motor and r/c system to control the speed of the loco as well.
