O Scale 3D Printed Fire Hydrants
Fire hydrants have been around for a long time and are still ubiquitous in rural and urban settings. It is hard to have an authentic scene with out one.

These models are very nicely rendered with crisp printing. They have good detail, and are sized to scale. Detail includes flanges, bolts, and caps. They are molded in color so unless you want something other than a red hydrant, no painting is necessary.

Conclusion
Atlas' 3D Fire Hydrants are nicely created lineside accessories that O scalers - and those who delve in non-railway 1/48 models - should appreciate. I can not imagine a 20th Century layout without a set or two.

Recommended.
