Oh man, those old MDC trucks were made out of self-destructing plastic, must have been from the same supplier that made the first Bachmann Shay trucks!

I would have thrown mine away, but they literally fell apart before I figured it out.

They were well proportioned cars in 1:32 but the line was too limited to convince me to go 1:32...

Back to the subject, the resolution and finish I have seen from filament printers on trucks makes them look "ugh" to me. A resin printer and abs, and metal wheels and SS axles would be fine... but a lot of cost and time.

Now, perhaps for passenger cars, and print the sideframes to accomodate small R/C car bearings... hmm...
