    Samsung, washers and dryers are available in burnt orange, ruby red, and royal blue metallic. Sold lots of them working at a furniture store in town.

    have it shipped to someone that you know in the states, and have them send it to you. I am in Canada and they do not ship to me, so when ever I ordered I had it sent to a buddy in Indy, and he sent it to me. Shipping will be a bit more because it has to be shipped and labelled as HazMat.

    resolution on a $500 unit wont be very good. Ive see some of the MakerBot machines working and its grainey and requires too much work to make a presentable piece.

    Here is my 1:1 Starting point for Reference. The build is how I want the 1:1 to turn out.

    AMT 1967 Impala Super Sport - Fairly Stock build
    I am in the process of building my 1:1 Medium Maui Blue 67 SS, so I decided to do a model build at the same time. I had a local paint supply mix me up the paint which came out great. I then foiled the car and hit it with a 1k clear.
    Interior is done to represent the blue vynil, and the floor was flocked.
    My 1:1 will have a 396, whereas the AMT kit uses a 427 (which to the eye is the same) I also used a Resin aftermarket flat hood instead of the incredibly rare in the 1:1 world 427 hood. Engine is detailed with a MCG Photo etch set and will feature a Fireball Modelworks Q-jet and 275/60/15s on MRC cragars. Ive added a FatKidd prewired distributor also. As with all of my builds Mold lines were sanded and removed prior to painting.

    Revell 1969 COPO Nova build
    Ive been working on this Copo Nova for sometime now, doing some detailing here and there. I added some MAS aluminum tall valve covers to the kit 427, and changed out the intake and carb. Added a pre-wired distributor and started on fuel lines etc.  The car is painted in Burnished Brown; ive always liked the oddball colors and am a fan of browns. Tires are AMT parts back redlines with kit wheels. I made shackles out of strip styrene to bring the back end up rather than using the generic lift blocks that the kit supplies. I also robbed some traction bars from a Camaro kit they still need to be repainted.
