I just got the Scale MotorSport super detail kit of the C6R Corvette. I want to add some suspension detail to it since I will be displaying with the wheels off, all open. What kit would be a good starting point to take the suspension from to add to the Vette?
I don't have much time to build as it is, and don't see it get any better in the near future. I stopped buying Revell and similar kits and started getting rid of the ones I don't HAVE to have. I am buying fewer kits, but investing in super detail kits and/or detail sets. I recently got the Aoshima F1 GTR longtail kit with the Hobby Design detail set and the HD brake kit, Tamiya FXX K with the Hobby Design super detail kit, and the Scale Motorsports C6R super detail kit. Those 3 alone are worth a couple years of building on my schedule. I got a couple of each of the new '30 Ford kits to build, a 1/12 MFH kit and some other kits with a lot of detail stuff. I'll be set for quite some time.
I'm sure this was touched on at some point, but can Google Sketchup Pro, or Inventor Professional from Autodesk be used to make the right drawings/file types for 3D printing? I am going to be forcing myself to learn these programs to design some prototype pieces of equipment for my business, and I figure why not make some model stuff while I'm at it.
You're being a jerk, which is the nicest way I can put it on here. You aren't special when it comes down to it. You're a knowledgeable person and have helped a lot of people on here, myself included and I have always appreciated it. The difference is we are here, we decided to come here, expecting some level of criticism and comments when we post our work on a model car forum. You keep going back to your old argument, which isn't going anywhere, because the CHILD that you are making fun of is not here to benefit from your constructive criticism, if you can manage to call it that. You assume he put it on there expecting praise. I am not sure how you came to that conclusion when you couldn't even manage 2 clicks with the mouse to find out where the video came from. Not everyone wants your opinion crammed down their throat. The great thing about this country is you can give it to them anyway, whether they want it or not. He's not asking for anything in the description of his video. You can defend yourself and pretend to be offering something all you want, but when it comes down to it, you just posted a video of a kid building a model to make fun of him. All you old timers always talk about how bad young people are these days and how we're all doomed because we're dumb. What ever happened to just admitting when you mess up and stick your foot in your mouth? By a lot of people's standards here, it's not a good build, but instead of just acknowledging that it's a kid, and it may in fact be his first model, you just keep going, and going, and going. You just have to make it known that you know what's best for everyone. If I am this stubborn and ornery when I get hold, I hope my wife just kills me in my sleep
