Re: Silent auction suggestions

I quite like the idea Pete, as for the multiple offers at the same price, just go by timestamp on an e-mail, whoever made that offer first wins. But yes, as said above, start with a "minimum" price to satisfy f1m, give an e-mail address and only accept offers through that e-mail to keep it...

Re: New Shapeways Store

A26g, the axle set does include both sides, the picture on the page was my first test print to check size etc.... You'll be happy to know that the DFV intakes are now completely modeled up in CAD, I just need to nest them for printing. I have also finished up the brakes and hubs and have just starte...

Re: MP4/6 Yet another technique for that wrinkled carbon eff

I'm with Flemming on this one, Yes, in theory the carbon fiber is flat black, but those fibers are encased in resin that isn't completely clear and it is the resin that gives this color effect. I've seen it with my own eyes many times having worked in F1 for several years. Whether the piece in quest...
