The modelers are not getting in free. It does not cost to enter the contest with a paid ticket on either Fri or Sat, you will get a ticket to get back in for free on Sunday only to pick up the models.

Not one time has they change from this and been going to the GG Nationals for 10yrs now.

Here is the new front cover, since this photo was taken it has been updated one more time as a longer oil connecter and water neck put in. Plus the one side has been stretched out a little to make more room forother brackets. The first mock up motor and then the new mock up motor with the right size heads, valve covers with script, oil pan with detail, Bell housing with T56 adapter plate and new front cover.

Still was done in .080 185% feed rate.

In Topic: Nason 2k Urethane Automotive Clear Coat Question

08 April 2015 - 10:44 AM

Yes the Nason line is Du Ponts lowest end line its a panel clear (not a finish clear) you can put this over any thing and every thing. ( also water decales)

Mix 4:1 ratio and shoot it at 12psi as it works good and then light wet sand from 3200 up to 12000. Now this look will not be inscale to any racing related look of a real car so please take note in that.

Thank you for the kind words Darren as this was done at a very high speed and I was just wanting to get some thing mocked up to start the frame work is all. The main motor will be fully detailed and done in .080mm and ran about 85% feed rate as with the older motherboards that are two years old it seems to like a lot better.

 

Mike this was done using ABS Industerial matearl solid white as it's for me. For clean up I have a shelf of .003mm on each edge that needs sanded off but that is more from the speed that im running the machine at. This is a Solidoodle Gen 3 with a few custom things they did for me two years ago. I'm getting a new machine next month that will be fully updated with all new stuff that can run at .060 at 150mm per a sec and use specialty material. I hope that I answered you on what you need to know as for resin and styrene the clean up is  min and it does not soke up any paint, this is ready to paint on finish and clear. For gluing use CA or 5min epoxy like it was a model kit and it holds a lot stronger.
