  1. I thank you all too because without requests and support it´s not that funny... THANK YOU ALL !
  2. Have corrected it. Hope it looks better now... One question left... Should I do the back side flat or should they be hollow?
  3. I know what you mean. Will try to make it better again. Maybe we should do the center deepening a little bit out of scale to make it look more correct. We´ll see. Hope to get this done till the weekend. Will upload new pics when done.
  4. Hi John, now I know which you ment. The wheel covers from your pic I have already modeled. Are you the one who asked me to do this via shapeways message? I think I only have to upload them to the shop. The ones from the ebay listing I haven´t done. But sure I can model them too. Downloaded the best pic for reference. Maybe you have some outer wheels which should be replaced by them (so we can use these dimensions). Regards, Rico
  5. My nail polish remover is with Acetone. But I think I´ve used the wrong words. "Rubbed" may be not correct. Maybe I had to say I dipped the remover with the cotton swap onto the parts and immediately washed it off under floating water. Have taken a look on the parts about 3 minutes ago and they are still clean and not more brittle then before.
  6. Hey guys, I know that there are so much of you who bought parts from my shop. Thank you all for that and for your patience in waiting for other parts that are on my workbench yet. You also may know that I use the parts for myself too. I tried many different ways to clean the parts but nothing really works yet. Today I tried a new thing. I rubbed the parts only a little bit with a cotton swap and nail polish remover. I could see the wax floating away. After that I was holding the parts under floating water to wash away the nail polish remover. Now the parts are nearly as clear resin. Even the headlight lenses from my ´68 GTX grille are now possible to use. Here´s a pic of how the parts look now. Hope this helps, Rico
  7. Thanks John, but the 1972-76 wheel covers I never had. If you want I can try to model these too. Only need pics.
  8. I offer them through shapeways... https://www.shapeways.com/shops/ra-sti-acute-s-scale-accessories
  9. The grille is now online but the tailpanel is still on the bench. I´m really disapointed about myself. Hope to get this one also done soon. Thank you all for your patience, Rico
  10. Hey guys, had some time today to check the dimensions of the hubcaps. Would call them done now. I really hope the details come out like they should. Please let me know what you think. Will put them into my shop in the next days as a set of 8 caps. Best regards, Rico
  11. Thank you guys. Nice to see that there´s so much interest in these items. Håkan sent me a big bunch of photos with dimensions so I can check now if my 3d model is correct. @gtx6970: Best way is to simply send me a PM. One thing I can tell you already is that I don´t have a ´67 GTX in my stash. So I need dimensions of the kits parts you want to have to be replaced. I hope this helps for the first time. Update will come.
  12. Already started on these... Here some rendered preview pics. They have a flat back. Diameter 10.7mm, depth 1.96mm. Rico
  13. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE WITH ME BOBBY. I had never thought that I would get so many requests in that short time.
  14. I already created different grilles for the 1/24 Revell Ramcharger. The 1977-78´s is available in 1/25 scale too (only scaled down but fits the Dodge Little Red Wagon kit). The other ones I also plan to scale down in the near future. If you would like to see, here´s the link: https://www.shapeways.com/shops/ra-sti-acute-s-scale-accessories
  15. Hey guys, the Cuda grille isn´t there because I had to thicken the outside yet to make it offerable for everybody. The testprint I ordered by myself and this makes the difference. Let me explain: As a designer you have the possibility to order your part with the option "Print it anyway". This means even if the walls of your parts are a little bit to thin you´re able to order these parts. As a customer you don´t have the opportunity to choose this option. This means the designer has to thicken the walls to make the part available for customers. Because of my less spare time since April last year I hadn´t the chance to do this. I started already but it isn´t ready to go. Once I´ve done it I will post it here for sure. BTW Bobby is still waiting for the tailpanel and I´m really sorry that I haven´t finished this. But I want to bring it to live too. I hope you will be patient with me and give me some more time. THX, Rico
  16. No progress yet. Lot of work and much less spare time. But it will be finished anyway. I´m still in need for the chassis and interior for reworking this too.
  17. I want to thank you three guys for bringing this to life. Received my copy today and have to say it´s an awesome work you did and do. King regards, Rico
  18. Hi John, did this correction on my Cuda a long time ago... On the first pic you can see that I cutted the front valance into three pieces. The side pieces I simply glued to the fenders. After that I puttied and sanded these areas into shape. The center of the front valance is still one part with the grille. No other modifications were necessary. Hope that helps. Rico
  19. Hey guys, after some additional research I overthought the engine compartment for my build. Will go with the Cammer from Revell´s ´99 Mustang SVT Cobra. Rear suspension will also come from this kit. I know it´s a 1/25 kit but the parts seem to fit very well. Update pics will come soon. On the other hand I´m trying to build a base for finish line photos. Hope to get this done as well. @ Scott: Like your progress on the high roof and the suspension. Looks pretty cool for me. Sorry I couldn´t help you this time (that fast)... @Jacob: Like your idea for the decals and the 4x4 drive. It´s looking very interesting. Best, Rico
  20. Although I´m new to the CBR too, I wouldn´t have a problem with using a diecast. Let´s see what Ryan is making out of it... Happy new year and let´s go.
  21. @ Jim: Me too. @ Bob: Seems to be the same thing I wanted to do with my Panel...
  22. This is VERY interesting. Hey Mike, what´s interesting? My project or the sentence below? BTW: Nice choices of kits already in here... Greets, Rico
  23. Thank you Peter for your suggestions. I really apprecciate this. The wideness of the wheel-well moldings is no problem. I can ever grind there a little more. There is no point with more then 0.25mm offset from the bodies surface on these... Maybe it´s the photos angle which makes them look thicker. We´ll see how it´s going on... Thanks, Rico
  24. Here is my entry (first time ever)... the 1/24 scale ´55 Ford Panel Truck from Revell. Already started (some bodywork) but I would call him at maximum 5% complete... Scaleproduction 19" BBS LM wheels with 3d printed Good Year Eagle F1 tires, VW and Audi laquer, 3d printed ´53 grille, resin casted seat. There will be two seats but I have to give the first one the right pattern before casting again. 2005 Shelby GT500 engine parts from a gluebomb I found on eBay... Hood from the ´56 Chip Foose PickUp... Happy building for all... Best, Rico
