  10. 1967 Camaro - 3d printed 'interpretation'

    Hi ok I understand a little better now thank you for the reply don't get me wrong I think the idea of doing things with the 3D printer is awesome I guess I'm looking at a more useful way to use it in modeling I'm in Chicago and I am 65 I have been building for 55 years I did my first model at 10 in 1962 it was an AMT 3-in-1 62 Ford Fairlane it was $1.49 the paint was 10c a bottle and the spray can was 59c today the kit is between $ 22.00 to $49.00 the spray cans are $4.95 to $6.95 each and the little jar's $3 to $4.00 each so I fully understand.
  11. 1967 Camaro - 3d printed 'interpretation'

    I can see the 3D printing for wheels and parts but not something like the hole car. Can't just the body be printed out.? and like you said you did lose a lot of detail sanding all the extra plastic off and 11 hours to print it took less time for my kids to come in to the world lol.!! I thought there was someone that was working on doing body's has anyone tried that would be great to be able to make the body you want and use the rest of the kit to complete it.
