N Scale - GRS Type D Signal

So I was bored one day a couple weeks back and was trolling thru post here at TWP and was reading Etraxx post on his 6" gate valve then it hit me 3D printing, a solution to a problem I have been having.

For a few week I have been playing around trying to scratch build prototype signal for my T&P layout and not having at least in my opinion good results.

Here a photo of one of my attempts



I started with making a 3D drawing in AutoCAD and came up with this



Then created an array of 48 signal heads for 3D Printing



Today I receive my order, here are the photos as received









Possibility the hood is a little to long, but I am happy with them.

What do you think??

They look good, must be cheaper and easier to work with than the brass ones.
