Select track surface height

Reproduction in H0 scale (1:87) faithful to the original of the concrete pillar of the "Modena" viaduct used in real life on the Milan-Bologna high-speed route and in the new variant of the historic route near Modena.

Perfectly reproduced and sized thanks to FDM 3D printing technology with cement like gray PLA material, it is supplied in 2 pieces, column and stack to be glued.

Available in the following sizes:

  • Height from track surface: 66 mm (equivalent to real life approximately 5.7 metres)
  • Height from track surface : 80 mm (equivalent to real life approximately 7.0 metres)
  • Height from track surface : 100 mm (equivalent to real life approximately 8.7 metres)
  • Customizable from a minimum of 66 mm to a maximum of 120 mm.

The item can already be used raw or can be easily worked and painted for an optimal finish.

Please check the track height as per the dimensioned drawing.

Finish of the bioPLA material

Assembly
Where assembly between the pieces is required, we recommend using cyanoacrylate glue for a quick and resistant fixing. We recommend lightly sanding the parts to be glued.

Sanding
To mitigate the streaking effect, you can roughen with 180/240 grit sandpaper and continue with finer grits, up to 1000 for the final sanding. It is recommended to moisten the sandpaper or wet the piece with cold water to avoid overheating the surface too much, as the PLA material could knead at high temperatures.
The use of power tools for sanding is not recommended.

Painting
Use acrylic products of the desired color with a matt finish (for cement, gray RAL 7035). To obtain a more uniform surface, the use of an airbrush or spray can is recommended. You can apply multiple coats until you are satisfied, leave to dry between coats.
