  1. That happens to be a 3d cad file that you can buy for $8.80. It's located here: https://www.artstation.com/marketplace/p/erMX6/1987-porsche-959-3d-model. If you have someone make them for you, have them make both sides. That way you'll be assured of having a matching set.
  2. 1958 Fury engine was an A block 318 Poly head with dual wcfb carbs. A 350 B block was optional. The 59 Fury came stock with a 318 and an optional 361. I used one of my 318's with one of Joseph's afb carbs in my 59 Fury. This engine was never made in model kit form. Members on this forum own 19 of these engines as I make them available to those who contact me. The B block engine is the early version of the 383 with a lower deck where the heads go. The Torqueflite transmission is the early cast iron version and not the 727 aluminum one. The B block Golden Commando engine also came with dual quads, so you would need a duel quad manifold. Here are examples of my 318. They are instructions on assembling it properly and will give you an example of a 318 engine for those years. They engines were painted silver.
  3. So, it't been a while since my last post. I have been busy, though it takes a while for me to do file corrections. Especially the 55 Dodge. It's almost done but I burned out on it and have switched to another project. I have a file for the best, most interior detailed version of a 1953 Cadillac Eldorado convertible. The file is free as long as I give credit to it's creator. This I will do. I hope to finish this, along with the 35 LaSalle convertible coupe and Delehaye F&F 1937 roadster, by some time in January of 2022. One of the parts I need for the Eldorado is an engine. What exists is completely deplorable. Here are some pic's of the file and test print. A test print. the frame is 85% complete. The engine is in early process.
  4. For my generation 1945. plus. I'm working hard and am determined to provide you with some models of cars from our youth. For a abominable fee. 3d printing is here.Just wish me a longevity of life to make it come true.
  5. Kurt, It just needs to be scaled, i.e made to scale. Sign up for the month subscription and download it Then contact me If what is needed ti to do If your friend has a small printer, I might print it for you
  6. So let's take a serious look at this new freedom license Hum3d uses. So. I purchase a 55 Dodge 4d from them. The file is 90% wrong. I make corrections and convert it to a 55 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer convertible. It's seriously screwed up. 85-90% is wrong. So I take my time' etc to fix it to be right, as mush as I can ascertain. Hum 3d, under their current licence, my improvement belongs to them. If I make any file of there's 3d printable, It belongs to them. Sorry Hum 3d, ain't happening. If I can get it free, I'm way ahead.
  7. Hum3d makes $95, not the artist. Read the last paragraph of the licence. Violation of any of these conditions will be prosecuted. You don't know if any kind of deal was made between these persons and Hum3d. You just assume they are "pirated." You have enough to worry about what's going on in your country. Maybe you should be more concerned with that than jumping to unsubstantiated conclusions. Guilty until proven innocent doesn't work here.
  8. There completely legal. The license states that resale of the file is prohibited. What you purchase is a download site to get them. There is $0 for the actual file.
  9. here's the link.https://www.desirefx.me/category/3d_models/vehicle/
  10. I'M posting this a guide for those looking for 3d files. Understand the difference between 3d files and 3d printable files. 3d files lack depth needed to be printable. A depth of 1.7 mm is needed to make the part printable. Without a knowledge of how to make these files printable, your dead in the water. With that in mind, I will give a web site that I have found that will give you a source of what's available at a minimum of cost. Check it out. There's something for everyone. Sports cares, seventies, eighties, even ninnies and more. Pickup truck. Semi's and more. Station wagon's and more. 's
  11. If you have the patients to wait, this 65 Dart is on my to do list. I won't promise when, but it will be a complete kit. Engine and all.
  12. It's been awhile since my last post. The inaccuracies of this Hum 3D file are unbelievable. I had started a 56 Dodge cad file and figured I could save time purchasing a Hum 3D file of a 55 Coronet 4 dr. Wrong decision. I would have been better off finishing the 56 file. I can"t find anything, if anything, right about this file. Currently, I've been working on the front fender And front end. I have corrected the slant of the fender top. I have corrected the wheel well opening. I have corrected the slant of the hood on the. I have started a correct hood on the fender. I have started the correction of the front fender and grill opening. The only way to fix these errors is by creating patch panels. What you see highlighted is the original file pf the front fender plus corrections I have noted above. Here is what the front end looks like.
  13. The engine is swimming around in the engine bay. Sensing something is wrong, i load the 56 3d blueprint file into Blender for verification. The whole front end is seriously wrong. My first project is the front fender slant. I still have to fix the front wheel opening. The front end is totally off on this thing. The windshield is set too far back The front of the hood and hood chrome is off Corrections underway
