  1. New update... Have designed a rear bumper and will testprint it this weekend to make sure it will fit the body and looking correctly. Here are some renderings for a first look. Hope you´ll like it. Cheers, Rico
  2. Hey guys, here are some pics of my latest testprint of the rear panel. Sorry for the rough print but my Anycubic Photon Mono has a resolution of only 0.1mm in X- and Y-direction. I did some changes already on the cross rail and started designing the bumper so I think I can finish this long time project soon. The only thing that bothers me is that there is so much plastic to remove on the inner edges of the fenders to make the taillight housings fit right but that is because of the design of the housings itself even on the 1:1. So here it is... Stay well, Rico
  3. @peteski: Yes, TWO years with no updates but they were very busy for me. This project is still one of my all time favourites so it will definitely find it´s way back on my bench.
  4. These should be nearly what you´re looking for. I think I would only change the center of the rims and design the hubcap and then these should be ready. The fender side scopps should be possible to design too. Best, Rico
  5. Hey guys, I proudly present a new update... After a long time of try and error and busy times with a lot of work in any direction I now totally redesigned the ´68 GTX rear end. First tesprints on my Anycubic Photon Mono showed the last issues. Now I think I have this one done. Before this is going into my shop I will order another testprint at shapeways to make sure this will work. The only thing left to do for completing this is to connect the taillight housings on the underside and use this connection as mounting area for the rear bumper which I also want to do next weekend. Here are some renderings of the new design. Hope you´ll like it, Rico
  6. Hi Tom, I had designded them per request some time ago and they are still available at my shapeways store... https://www.shapeways.com/product/6K9CZZZ2M/1-25-1959-cadillac-taillights?optionId=106113942&li=shops Rico
  7. Hey guys, did the next testprint by myself and I´m really pleased with the look. I hope you´ll like it too. Here´re the new pics... And some pics for comparison with the kit parts... I even uploaded the parts already and they are now available at the following link: https://www.shapeways.com/product/PDGTY742K/1-25-1969-cuda-tailpanel?optionId=222013002&li=shops Once again thank you all, especially Bob, for your patience. Rico
  8. Hey guys, I know there are many of you waiting for the tailpanel and I thank you all very much for your patience. After a long time full of work I now have the first testprint in hand. There are some minor issues because the inner panel isn´t wide and the scriptings are not tall enough. I will try to fix this now in a short timeline to make these parts available. And because I now have my own 3d printer I can do the next testprints on my own. Anyway here are two pics of the first testprint. Hope you´ll like it. Best regards, Rico
  9. Four weeks again since my last update and there´s some great progress on every build I can see here. So here´s mine... I´m still hanging on the details. First of all I started wiring the MSD ignition boxes. I choosed a place on the passengers side firewall for mounting them... ... then, because both kits doesn´t have one, I started scratchbuilding my own Optima battery... ... and an ignition coil. After that I started wiring the engine... ...painted the Optima... ... and this weekend I finished the ignition wiring and started the plumbing gas tank, the oil pan and pumps. The fitting still have to become repainted after mounting. But that´s the work for next week. Thank you all for looking, Rico
  10. Thank George for his help.
  11. Found what I was looking for. Thank´s George...😉
  12. Hi George, thanks for your help. Looks like this would be a good choice for what I want to create. Is there any chance to get this one anywhere without buying the whole kit? Hi Hakån, thanks for the infos.
  13. Hi Roger, this would be great. But only the stock engine. Don´t know if there is another 327 engine in any other kit...
  14. Hey fellow modelers, like the title says I´m in need of a Chevy 327 engine. I prefer the single carb setup like this one. (picture from: https://www.69pace.com/2/1969engine327_210.htm) Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you all in advance. Rico
  15. Thank you guys, I will give it another try...
