  1. This is simply one of the finest examples of scale model building I have ever had the pleasure of viewing. Your attention to even the smallest detail is so impressive. You are a rare artist that combines vision. technique, problem solving and patience. There have been so many times in this journey when I think, OMG, how did he just do that ! This is a build that I will continue to share with my friends as an example of what can be achieved in this hobby. Thank you for sharing this with us my friend Randy
  2. Great trade with Matija, would do it again anytime:) His kit to me arrived in 8 days from Croatia ! Wish our postal system was that fast:) Randy
  3. Hello Bill, I just started to carry Profil24 in my store. The limited amount of kits that I have handled so far look very good. I have started with some of their sports car line up. The full detail Jags and the aforementioned Maserati full detail kit, all look great. The body parts are fairly thin. Not as thin as Plastic kits or HRM's stuff but the next best thing. The photo etch, decals and the vacuum formed windows look good. Instructions look adequate. The curbside kits are thicker body castings with a simple one piece chassis plate. I have not had a chance to build one yet so no first hand experience on how they go together. I believe Jason Park did one of the Jags not too long ago on this forum. Randy
  4. Hi Folks, Thank you George:) Appreciate that Dann !!! Hello Cameron, Yes , both kinds of intakes will be included with the motor kit. You will also be able to orientate the expansion tank either way to match your radiator. The following are some pics of the 'slanted' Weber manifold. *** PLEASE NOTE*** that these pieces are test prints that we run in a black resin (low cost) and print in 50 micron layers for speed. I sprayed two of them with chrome just so you could see them better. These prints were ran with the Webers and manifold as one piece so we can check measurements and parts layout. For fun I included the smaller print in silver that shows fuel lines and throttle linkage and distributor that was printed all together. Randy
  5. Well it looks to be getting close to the finish line here my friend ! I have been staring at your last few updates showing this beauty coming together and am just amazed by your skills. This is truly a Masterpiece of scale modelling. Randy
  6. Excellent work as always JC !!! Your interior conversion looks right on for the time period. Highlight of my trip back east was spending time with you & Brad Randy
  7. Thank you Folks for all the positive comments !!!! Stan & Gerry, I know a guy that needs side draft Webers for a Birdcage so you know they are coming Kurt, I believe Ferrari used the Weber 40 DCL carbs which as Bill pointed out, are more compact. Bill, I did let a sample of the manifold go at NNL East but they are not for sale yet.
  8. The Webers are now loaded up on the store site. Thanks for looking in !
  9. The following are progress pics of the full motor...
  10. Here are some pics of the Weber painted......
  11. Hi Folks, I thought I would share photos of MBW's 3D parts that we are working on. Our first engine project is the Ford 427 Cobra motor. It will feature Weber carbs. We are releasing the Webers first with the full engine kit coming out first of June. The goal is 3D printed parts that have a surface that is ready for paint, no more 'grainy' texture, and a reasonable price point. The Webers will sell for $9.00 for a set of four (unpainted).

    The parts do not get any sanding. These pics show them as they are printed and finished.... I use Mr. Surfacer 1000 as the primer. The last two pics show after gloss black..

    Casey, Apologies for not seeing your questions earlier. Those smooth grey rims were printed with a Wanhao Duplicator 7. 20 micron layers using 3DSR's ' ENG Tough ' resin. The D7 is actually the lowest cost machine of all our printers but works great for some parts. The following is an attempt to show what the 'finish' looks like on the Borrani wire wheels. I will start with the two machines used. The Wanhao D7 printed the larger backs and the knockoffs. For the fine detail needed on the front portion of the rims we used the Titan DLP printer using the orange resin.
