      We're still trying to solve a disk space problem. Unfortunately, it's being stubborn about getting rectified. There will be a long maintenance window this weekend, which I will announce here. Thank you all for being patient.

  1. 69 Camaro Convertible resin up top

    Maybe it´s possible to draw one for 3d printing. After that it can be casted anyway...
  2. 68 GTX grille

    Thank you guys. @ george 53: The rear parts aren´t ready yet. Have the bracing on the trunk lid left to do. Will let you all know when it´s done. Want to do a testprint too. I don´t like to offer parts which don´t fit because 3d printed parts are more expensive than resin parts yet. Hope to get this all done soon. Rico
  3. 68 GTX grille

    Hi Bill, thanks for your reply but sorry I will offer these parts only 3d printed at my shapeways shop. Resin casting I haven´t tried yet. Maybe someday I will do that but anyway the 68 GTX rear end will come in eight parts. Especially the smaller ones would be very hard to cast.
  4. 68 GTX grille

    Hey guys, although it´s not really according to the topic I want to show you something new. After a request I´ve modeled a special Plymouth hubcap. It´s designed to replace the kit outer wheel of the 69 AMT Plymouth GTX. Hope you´ll like it. Any comments will be much appreciated. Thanks, Rico
  5. 68 GTX grille

    Hey guys, had a little bit of time these days so tried to finish the rear end for the 68 GTX. Still have to do the bracing details on the trunk lid. Here some renderings of the progress. Like last time I will do a test print again for test fitting. Any suggestions and comments will be much appreciated. Thanks for looking. Rico
  6. 68 GTX grille

    Hey guys, again thank you all for your support. I´m at fixing the issues on the trunk lid and doing the taillights at the moment. Then the other parts will come on my "bench". Sorry for the slow progress but I´ve been really busy. If there will be something new I will let you all know immediately. Rico
  7. 68 GTX grille

    Hi there, thank you all for your support. After a very busy time I yesterday cut out the trunk lid of my 69 GTX to test fit the 68 one. There are still some issues. The openings for the reflecting parts have tomove down a little bit and the center of the front had to be sanded in shape. Also the top of the lid could be thicker in comparision of the kit plastic thickness. Anyway I´m pleased with the result till now. Will correct the issues in the near future to make this part ready to use. Here are some pics so you can tell me what you think. I want to do the taillights as a complete part set with the seperated rear fender areas. What you think about that? Rico
  8. Hey guys, reshaped the rear of the hood. Hope it fits better now. Added underhood details too. Attached a pic I got from Scott comparing my drawing with the kit hood. Hope you like it. Rico
  9. Thanks Patrick, if you have a special part to reproduce feel free to send me a PM like Scott did it before. I can also try to scale the grilles for the Trailduster and the Ramcharger. Would be great if you could send me a pic of the front end of the 1/25 scale kit. Rico
  10. Hi Scott, thanks for your confidence and for your feedback. @Al: Yes, I do but the hood has to be corrected. It doesn´t fit like I wanted it. Hope to get the corrections done next week. Would prefer you wait awhile. You can find these parts at shapeways. Only search my nickname "camaro69" and you will find everything I already offer. Rico

  12. Revell 2007 SHELBY GT500

    Hello everyone, it´s time to start my first "on the Bench"-topic now. This one is on my bench since about November 2011. It has been in my showcase for five years now, waiting for completion. I used it as a test project for some homemade parts (for example seatbelt hardware) and new techniques for me like flocking, weathering and BMF. A few little things still left to do like shifter, steering wheel, intercooler and over all the paintjob. I hope I finally get it finished this year. First engine pics... And the first mockup after shortening the front bumper... First bumper out of the box ... ... now the nose looks more like a "Stang" to me. The wheels are from an Aoshima Nissan Skyline R34. Suspension adjustment and disc brakes... Because the kit sits a bit too high at the front I decided to lower it in an easy way by using styrene. It´s not the correct way to lower a car but for the model world it´s ok I think. Disc Brakes were covered with BMF and after that sanded a little bit with 160 grid sandpaper. After sanding I applied black water color to make the sanding visible. Now they look like used discs. New exhaust tips... I know they are huge... First time ever... weathering only with enamels The axles are not glued yet because? Yes the driveshaft is still missing... Seatbelt hardware and flocking No comment, my first attempt for all of this... And this is how it stands today... Hope you like it... Any suggestions and comments are welcome and much appreciated. I really hope I get the rest of it done this year. Greeets from Germany Rico
  13. Hello guys, please don´t mind me. I´m here since January last year and now realized that I have forgotten to let you know who Iam. My name is Rico. I´m 41 years old and come from Germany. Most of my kits in stash are the good old muscle cars. I also draw my own parts for 3d printing. Happy building to all of us. Rico
  14. 68 GTX grille

    First of all thanks you guys again. Every suggestion to make these parts better is much appreciated. @gtx6970: The plan is to offer the whole trunk lid with seperate reflecting parts because this makes the conversion much easier. At the 69 grille the emblem is deeper than the rest. Don´t know how it turns out because for myself I have no print already. But two pieces are sold and maybe the buyer takes some pics so I can post them. @VRM: Great idea with the interior. But this will really take some time. I do all of this in my free time after work and all other howeworks. @Claes Ericsson: If you want the grille for the MPC Coronets please feel free to send me a PM. For me the limitation is not relevant. Rico
