Glad to hear the design has the coupler screws going up into the frame. I would be concerned about the load on the plastic alone.

So what is Shapeways Frosted Ultra Detail Acrylic like?  Is it flexible?  Brittle?   I wonder how it would hold up in an accident or derailment, especially since it's bonded to the frame.  Mounting it with screws would allow you to swap out a replacement if it was damaged, where as the glue-mount might be a real mess to do a second time.

I'm not trying to be critical, just wondering what you think seeing as how you've actually done what I've only thought about.

Oh yeah and here's my order...
MTH GP38s and GP40's
MTH SD70M
