      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Questions for those who use 3D printers
    I am trying to replicate a set of valve covers. The largest issue is the Upper and lower case Detroit Diesel raised lettering. I have only found the raised lettering in all caps.
    So here are my questions:
     
    1) How small can 3D printing go? These letters are maybe 2-3mm high. 
    2) What do you need to send a 3D printer?
    3) If it could work, what would be an approximate cost for a set of 2 valve covers.

    The story is as good as the model and the model is pretty darn good.

    Very nice Mr. Snake. Good choice on the restoration instead of a rebuild. Those time capsules have a special value.
     
    Nixon admin? Fitting tribute for the introduction of the 55 mph speed limit and double daylight saving time. (That was him, yes?)

    Excellent work!

    One of my favorite kits. You did a great job with it, John! I like that you raised the scoop so it pokes through the top of the roof. Good upgrade.

    Wow, Dan! You did an excellent job with that! I like the one piece body and rear hatch. I've always wanted to narrow the rear and upsize the rear tires to fit the power of the Hemi.

    I have been hunting this one for a long, long time. I finally got a good e-bay price on one.

    The box showed up today. Marked FRAGILE - good. Looks like a smaller box surrounded by packing - good. Pick up the smaller box - the model drops out the open end wrapped in a plastic grocery bag. Parts follow. Poop. Broken axel, driving lights and nerf bars. The seller was doing so well. He just failed to wrap the model before putting in a 6-sided inner box (instead of an open ended box).
    So much for putting this one straight on the shelf. I'll have a little more repair to do. I knew it was missing one exhaust trumpet, but I also have the make the rear end cover and headlight lenses.

    I know the risks of buying built models; I'm still thrilled have to have it. It will be fairly easy too take apart and restore.

    Wow Chris, That is just spot on perfect. I am so glad you take your time with this. It's worth it.

    Great work overall. The grill and dash are my favorite parts. I would display this one on a mirror for sure.

    That screw drive vehicle needs some custom exploration. Way Cool!
    Mr. Snake, The Tarantula would be called Reentry and it would have either an Orange or While paint with a entering the atmosphere flame job.
    Here is a Lil' Coffin truck. Brad Leisure also had the same idea, but he went with a fleetside. Sorry, I don't have a pic of his art.

    I remember that one, Pete. I saw it at a model show and asked you about it. If I remember right , you did it once then redid it. Excellent styling and super clean execution. That one will always be a classic.
    If you want to change platforms, try some of Ira Dunham's space hot rods. You would have to find the thread.
