Default 3D printed GSE: heavy machinery

Not really a diorama like I posted in the 1/400 forum in the past, but thought I'd share my latest heavy machinery since these might be of interest to diorama makers. Mine are 1/400, but other scales are available on Shapeways (search for "tyd"). These need to be cleaned and painted like most 3D prints.

They are made of a clear acrylic so they must be primed with white and then color. They come coated in wax from the print process so I clean them with Simple Green and a toothbrush before painting with an airbrush. Other people have told me acetone works too.

These are incredible, but probably quite obscure for most model airport builders, unless involved in airport construction or snow clearance.

I would like to see some classic period vehicles that were common on most airports like period fire engines, airport buses, articulated fuel tankers, toilet cleaning vehicles, 'operations' vans etc.
