  1. The Supersonic has landed.

    Headers are part of the engine, carbs and aircleaner are not. Headers connect with the exhaust pipe which is printed as part of the engine compartment.

    Bilingham (see above) made the wheels. Thanks, Bill!

    All finished and I'm packing to attend the Philly NNL; everyone here is going, right?
  4. The Supersonic has landed.

    BMF and clear coat are on, dashboard is in, windows are next. Completion by Thursday night, in order to take it to the Philly NNL on Saturday at the Simeone Museum. Hope to see everyone there! I will be wearing a black shirt with an ACME logo and giving out flyers for our show, the Southern NNL on November 3. Drop by and say hi.

    It is a resin printer, I don't know thew make but can check. PM me for contact info on the printerguy.

    Ace, Yes!

    Not much surface prep - several coats of primer and light sanding. Much less than Shapeways' materials. I'm sold on resin printer quality.
  8. The Supersonic has landed.

    Glad ya like! My printerguy has a resin printer, the layers seems to melt together; giving a much smoother surface.

    After some problems with the hood and hinging it, I have applied the first coat of paint. Hope to see everyone at the Philly NNL on March 10 at the Simeone Museum.
  10. 1950 Alfa Romeo Alfetta

    Digging a little deeper, I see the grille is $9.00. Probably worth it, considering how much better it is from the kit. . https://www.shapeways.com/product/K4AMVS3WM/alfa-158-grill?optionId=63435569 .

    I haven't seen this update kit for your Alfa yet, but I understand it's very good: https://www.shapeways.com/product/AURGTZLE8/alfa-romeo-158-update-kit?optionId=60111686&li=marketplace .

    The Lusso I modified from a 330 LMB, about 21 years ago. I painted it red but since then decided that looked a bit too common and so I am now repainting it in Gravity Colors MB Ice Blue. I have displayed it over the years but, oddly, it never drew much interest. I cast the body and sent it to an English builder that I swapped kits with , who when he quit building, sent it to Scalekraft. So it is the basis of his kit. Unfortunately, he went out of business about 11 years ago. The Lusso is my favorite Ferrari and in my top ten favorite cars.

    There has been two Cord L29 masters floating around for ..what?.. 15 or 20 years? Am I going to have to wait until either of you two retire?
