    Like the '40 Ford nose on the Streetle, but not a big fan of that wart on its hind end. Would be so nice if they included stock front & rear lids. But I doubt that will happen.

    Is this open dune buggy in the Streetle Beetle?

    I doubt there will ever be the demand for 3D printers, like there was for VCR's back in the day. VCR's proliferated because almost every household in America had one.
    I don't see a day when every household has a 3D printer. Not even close.
    The military figures looked good. So why do they look good, while Shapeway products readily admit their products are grainy to the touch? How similar was the units that printed each?

    Indeed, the bracket is visible in the instruction drawing above, just flip it, and turn it to correct it. Thanks!

    Just right color combo. Sweet!

    Body sides are a large mass, so enforcement ribbing was added around the perimeter of areas such as edge of window openings, and doorways. Or I suppose they just felt it made it look better.

    Album of State Police Cars
    I don't know if this will work for all, as the photo album is on Facebook. Apologies if not.

    Looks like the inner structure could be scratched with a little sheet plastic. Maybe out of tin over a home made die.
    Good a place as anywhere to give scratch building a try.

    The "Original", or "regular" foil seems to work as far as adhesion goes. Perhaps a little NOVUS 3 stage polish right to the film, still on the backer sheet would bring out the shine even more so than regular foil?
    Likewise, for aluminum, a super fine grit steel wool to the film still on the backer sheet. Perhaps Dullcote sprayed.
    For Matt black, steel wool chrome, then spray with matt black spray.

    You're half way around the world from the US, and the accuracy is more spot on than many builders (including myself) do! Thank you for sharing that with us!
