The model was created using 3D printing for the lead "A" unit shells, while the "B" or middle unit was scratch-built from an A unit. The decoration was done with the technique I call "full-side decal" where basically the entire side is one decal. I paint the bodies white and print the decal on clear decal stock. Some added details such as the pantographs were scratch made from etched brass parts from an ship-detailing kit. The power chassis is the 35.5mm Eishindo chassis, and all units are powered.
If you are interested in purchasing a shells, they will be available on the CCE Shapeways site, and feel free to contact me if you are interested using the decal artwork for your own model.
