Re: Are 3D printing clubs the future?

3D printing is great for parts and in my case, I am having an entire car printed in 3D and it is well worth it. 3D printing made that project possible for me and my skill set and amount of time I have for that project. The parts are amazing and I can’t even begin to think of how much time I have sav...

Re: calling forum member Smirkoff RE: Shapeways parts

Smirkoff does excellent work. He has been working on a project of mine for awhile and I could not be more impressed. I am also happy with Shapeways. I am very happy with the parts I have received so far. It is a large scale project and there is plenty that could go wrong, but nothing has. I am happy...

Re: 1/8th Ferrari F40 Subscription

We have family in England. I am going to reach out and see if I can set up a subscription. Personally, I’m tired of waiting for a US company to offer them. Model-Space seems to be offering almost nothing lately and Agora seems to think that old American muscle and fire trucks are interesting. That s...

Re: 1/8th Ferrari F40 Subscription

I think it looks great and I’d get it in a heartbeat if I had access to it. I don’t understand why it’s not sold elsewhere.

Re: 1/8 scale F1 kits

Yes, it is. I built the Rossi bike and it’s equally as nice. The only thing I did to that bike, as it’s prepainted, was to clear coat all of the body panels. Really glad I did that. I had an extra cowering and was able to practice on that. The Ducati will be a nice champagne. I bought the Paul Koo u...

Check out this build video of the Ducati. This guy is amazing. He also builds the Pocher Lambo and the Rossi Yamaha.

Re: 1/8 scale F1 kits

I have owned but not built the new Pocher Lambos and I have their Ducati on deck to built. I sold off the Lambos, but I can tell you that the quality is nothing like the kits of old. They are amazing. So I would expect the Lotus to be as well. And for any 643 builder that is in progress and that can...

Doubtful. Surprised they are acting so petty. They seem to have crossed a line, just a little. Just get on worth it.

Re: IXO Collections 917

I would argue that any kit you put detail into requires a similar level of commitment. Some of these kits are better than others, but they are far from toys. They go together and look better the more detail you add, just like any model of any scale. But when I look at any of the 1/8 cars vs the one ...
