    LMAO. No wonder I kept crashing with Flight simulator. And here I was blaming it on the joy  stick. Thanks for the laugh, you made my day.

    Exactly, Steve

    You can right click copy and paste from Photobucket as long as you open the picture first and not try from the library's files.

    Got the generator done, but it's been raining all day so it's not sun cured yet. It's printed in 2 pieces that can be printed at the same time. Some of the supports are still attached on the one end. I have to wait until the sun cure to make it hard enough to trim any closer. You can see the fan fins on the end were the pulley attaches. Just another example of the kind of print that can be expected from these machines.

    I'm thinking the non photo loading from a third source, i.e. Photobucket, Fotki etc, might be a result of the new full editor posting fix. The editor may not have the ability to post a picture from a url. Only direct links from your files on computer.

    Here's the pulley.

    Yes Steve, I found this way of doing the interior seats and door panels to be the most realistic way to present the interior. Besides, I'm at a disadvantage when it comes to doing small detail work in that I only have useful sight in my left eye. This means that I don't have depth perception. To get an idea of what I mean, place a small object onto a flat surface, close your right eye and try to pick it up. Anyway, the interior pieces on my Photobucket are the old ones printed on my fdm filament printer in my icon. The other 2 pictures here are their replacement parts printed on my high res dlp printer. The seat back on the left is the front and has the strap with buckles. The one on the left is the back and has the ash try. If you look closely at the strap's on the door panels, you can see see the buckles. It's also a much crisper print with well defined lines.

    59 Plymouth vert with some 3d printedparts -the windshield
      This is another project I started years ago and shelved because of lack of scratch building skills. For a quick intro, it is the 1959 Plymouth Sport Fury Modelhause kit I purchase about 12 years ago. The only parts I'm using from that kit are the body, hubcaps, dash, front bumper with headlights, rear bumper and tail lights. The rolling chassis as well as under the hood parts, interior floor and back seat are from the AMT 58 Belvedere kit.                                                                                                             One thing that I'm really good at is breaking windshield frames. This was one of them. I attempted to make a resin cast copy, but my resin skills aren't good enough. The thought came to me a couple of weeks ago that I could possibly draw one up and print it out on my high res 3d printer. I did it and printed it out at 100 mu layer thickness. It was't too bad, but still needed some touch up work. And then, of coarse, I broke it doing that. I glued it and put it on the car anyway. This is my first attempt at posting from Photobucket on the this new forum update. I hope it works. I sure do miss that post preview. It didn't work . Here are the links to my Photobucket   Pic's.                       
      I wasn't real happy with the results. I decided to lower the layer thickness in halfto  um. This meant that the print time went to  Time longer.  hours and minutes later I have this. Now I'm happy.

    That doesn't say much about the type of printer. It could be an fdm filament style printer or possibly a dlp stereolithographic top down kit. For that you would need a dlp projector unless you know how to modify a cheap suitable one. That will cost you in the $600 to $700 range.  My dlp projector ran me $607, but I didn't have to do any mods to it.

    For the first time ever, I received an email notification that a fellow member had sent me a message. Thanks Gregg. This new format is is working great for me.

    It works perfect on my laptop. I really like the new format. Those of you using i.e., I here Microsloth is going to discontinue  using it. I'm using Chrome on Linux. I also have Firefox installed, but Chrome is much faster.

    I have built this kit and yes it is 1:24. It went together very nicely with no fitment problems. The colors of the plastic were good  enough to just apply Future and the end result was very satisfactory.

    Not if everyone ignores the agitators Ray.
