  1. Photoetched Homemade

    Wow, these look great. What are your thoughts on the MicroMark kit? It seems cool being a complete kit with everything to get started but I'm unsure.
  2. Adding tread to resin slicks

    Wow, thanks for all the replies as I didn't expect any. I don't trust myself with some of the techniques mentioned but will let you know what I end of going with via pictures etc...
  3. Hello, Has any one added a tread pattern to resin tires? And is this just a really silly question? I think it's probably easier to just buy treaded tires but I wanted some flexibility.

    This may help your endeavors, it looks very interesting; https://www.micromark.com/Micro-Mark-Pro-Etch-Photo-Etch-System_2
  5. Serious 3D printing inquiry...

    Wow, marvelous, thanks Joe.
  6. Serious 3D printing inquiry...

    Wow, awesome! Thanks Joe!
  7. Serious 3D printing inquiry...

    Agreed. As a sort of comparison, that MKIV engine runs ~$50 where as an HRM MKI resin cast engine runs ~$30.
  8. Serious 3D printing inquiry...

    I thought to post these outstanding examples of 3D printing. To me they look cast. Unsure what sort of printer ScaleProduction uses but whatever it is, there seems to be no texture.
  9. Has any one used nail powder dip?
  10. 1/24 Tamiya Porsche GT2

    Hi, Thanks for the info. I've nothing much as all my stuff burned up in the Cali fires this past fall. I'll pass on the kit, too many unknowns. Thanks for the efforts though.
  11. 1/24 Tamiya Porsche GT2

    Hello, Would any one happen to have the Tamiya 1/24 Porsche GT2 street version kit without the body?
  12. Serious 3D printing inquiry...

    Thank you for the kind words.

    Hi, My 2 Dinars here (Currency used in Serbia). The stuff from Shapeways is a little grainy, even there premium finish which was then called Smoothest Fine Detail. They now have another which is supposed to be even finer and smoother. Attached are some pictures of a mid engined 70's era race car tranny that I just had to have. I had several of them but they all burned up so I don't have the ability to take pictures of the raw product from Shapeways but like I said, they were a tad grainy. I applied several light coats of Alclad filler/primer diluted using Gunze Leveler. With a bit of very light sanding in between coats. While its expensive, some stuff I can only find there, like the fore mentioned tranny. PS One can make anything work and Randys/MBWH upcoming spoked wheels look awesome, plus he's become a good friend so I'll for sure buy those from him and just abut anything else for that mater. PSS I do agree with Dan though, 3D printing can be grainy and pricy but that's ok with me. I wished everything was of the same amazing quality as HRM fromage which is good old fashioned resin casting.

    Thank you Lee.
  15. 1/24 Tamiya Porsche GT2

    Hello and thank you for the kind reply, I'll take what ever can part with. I'm trying to line up projects for later in the year and thought that this would be a good simple way to do the C1 964 RWB trans kit with it.
  16. DDP Scale Models

    Hi, Would any one happen to have an email addy for DDP models? I'm not on FB although he does have a presence there.

    Hi and thanks Mike. Well, I had a parts enquiry is all. What kit did you buy and are you happy with its quality? How's the casting etc...?
  18. 1/24 HRM Halibrand 6 spoke?

    Hello, Would any one terribly mind sending me 1 HRM 1/24 Halibrand 6 spoke front tire and wheel? Here is a photo for reference. Just the smaller fronts mind you and really only 1 tire and 1 wheel. Thanks in advance.
  19. 1/24 HRM Halibrand 6 spoke?

    Well, he seems super super slammed so I think filling a 1 wheel/tire order isn't something he has time for.
  20. Bugatti 100P in 1/24 por favor?

    Thanks Pete. I just sent Fisher Models a message and hope to help him as much as I can.
  21. Bugatti 100P in 1/24 por favor?

    Hello, I've a friend (ex Navy lifer; go Navy!) who loves air craft and has his own small plane? At any rate I'd love to build him a Bugatti 100P in 1/24 however the only kit I've found was Fisher Models which is no longer around due to the rather catastrophic wild fires last fall. Heck, I've PTSD over them as well and never thought I'd be so fragile over it. At any rate, does any one know of a Bugatti 100P in 1/24?
  22. Bugatti 100P in 1/24 por favor?

    Hi Pete and thank you. I did manage to save one of his kits, a 1/24 Ferrari White Elephant. Would you happen to know of this post of his asking for kits to make molds from? I'd love to help him as much as I can.
  23. Hi Gary, I just got it today and it looks marvelous! Thank you very much!
  24. I'm curious if any one would happen to have ideas on what to scavenge from in order to get a top mounted cooling fan in 1/24 or 1/25 scale? Something like what's pictured.
  25. Hi Gary, It hasn't showed up yet but I'm in no rush on this and am simply grateful you sent it to me.
