Hi all! Thought I should post some info about the 3D modeled parts I've made available via my Shapeways store "MapleLeaf Modelworks". Most of the parts are 1/25, but there is a growing 1/16 section, including a 1930 Ford coupe body (either stock or with a 2.5" chop). For the deep-pocketed, there is a 1/8 scale '30 coupe as well. Rat rod grilles, hemi log intakes, a 6x2 intake for Olds Rocket, E&J headlights, fishtail exhaust tips, artillery wheels, WWII oxygen tanks, 60s-style Cal Custom 40-40 air scoops...it's all a mix of stuff that I've desired for my own modeling projects and thought others might like as well. These parts can be 3D printed in either detail plastic (best finish for scale parts IMHO) or a more coarsely-finished white plastic for lower cost. Both will require filler-primer and some sanding in order to be presentable. I hope to get around to posting some photos of actual printed items soon. Thanks for looking! https://www.shapeways.com/shops/maple-leaf-modelworks
Hi fellow modelers, a long time project is finally done. I designed grilles for the 1/24 scale kits of the Chevy Blazer and the GMC Pickups from Monogram and Revell. I did three model years for both and they are now available at my shapeways shop. https://www.shapeways.com/shops/ra-sti-acute-s-scale-accessories Here some pics of the painted test prints I ordered to make sure they´ll fit. They are all open and made out of six seperate parts (grill housing, grill insert, headlight lenses and turn signal lenses). I added a seperate lens of each if one gets broken or lost. Best regards, Rico
So recently i just jumped back into modeling, i was on reddit reading and what not trying to get idea on what to start working in, and came across a post from a guy wanting to downsize his collection, and wanting to help people get into the hobby, after talking with him he sent me this charger kit for free *awesome dude and much appreciated* so when i was building in the past i always built my cars the same way, perfect paint jobs and fancy builds. Which is why i think i got burnt out, i was putting to much into trying to make it perfect and just wasn’t having fun anymore so with this car i wanted to try some different things that i have never tried before, i wanted to build it as a nice car maybe some guy in the mid/late 70’s got just out of high school and dumped his money into, nice but driven look, so i wanted to do some lite weathering i also have been messing with 3D printing and just picked up a resin printer so i wanted to try to print some things up for. A lot of talking i know, but I’m getting to the pictures and building i promise lol so like i said i wanted a 70’s style street machine. the stink bug, shackled up stance, tunnel ram sticking through the hood, etc.. so i went to Ron olsens website for some stl files and pick up a tunnel ram, some Hoosier front runners, ansen wheels and then saw the predator carb files he had and said “oh yea this car needs those” So i printed those out and they came out pretty good still learning the printing process Paint turned out ok on the parts, not perfect but it will work, i have painted the filter elements since i took these pictures, Molotov chrome on the wheels and carb body Aluminum on the air cleaners and just primer for the front runner tires
I just wanted to share a truck from the movie mad max I'm working on.This model was completely design from scratch by me on a 3d program to be made as a paper model kit. Since i already have the 3d model I'm thinking of making a 3d printed model of it if there is any interest on it. Let me know what you think. you can see the model here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJsU_T4Gj8Y&t=1s
