Smile 1:400 3D printed GSE

Hi guys,
I guess I'm going about this hobby in the opposite way most of you started. I started out with a 3D model of some tiny vehicles, and now I've expanded my collection to include a 737. That means I'm well underway of building my own little airport!
Currently my ops guys have ULD's, all sorts of carts, and now a group of container/pallet transporters. Don't worry, they know the ULD's don't fit in the 737, that's why they also got some belt loaders and baggage carts. I'll show pics of that operation later this week.
If anyone is interested, I uploaded the 3D models to Shapeways so others can have them printed as well (link)

Looking forward to seeing a very realistic airport.
Great work so far.

The baggage operation is ready for take-off
I made a Volk HFZ30N baggage tractor, as often seen on Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. I added a couple of carts and made a complete baggage train on a stand. That makes painting easier (although I still feel I screwed it up). The closed baggage carts are ready for loading.
The belt loaders are also ready, as are the pushbacks. The towbars are still in the painting phase.

All this digital stuff... I'm an analog dinosaur. You can't teach an old dog new tricks.
