Scale I Build

Found 1 result

  1. Hi, since I'm nearing completion of the Bantam I thought I'd start a new thread on what I'm going to start next. It's a 67 pro mod' Mustang body that I bought from TDR and will have a twin turbo Ford coyote engine. The engine is one that a company by the name of MMR races and has many of their own proprietary components including a billet block. Today was a sunny hot day in Pa. so I wanted to see what 3D printed bodies were all about. I sprayed the Duplicolor primer first and carefully wet sanded it with 400 grit. 3 hours later and I was really happy (and surprised) how it turned out for the first pass. I sprayed tamiya primer and next I'll sand it with 600 & 800 to clean it up. I think with 5 or 6 total hours of body prep it should be good to go. I honestly thought it would be a lot more work than what I experienced but I can't emphasis enough how carefully you must sand it. I used a variety of sanding "tadpoles" that I've used for years that I've cut up in a variety of shapes. It would be tough to get it uniform without those I believe. Some pics to give an idea of the basis for the build. Many of the components that I made for the defunct "Henry" build will be used on this build. Cheers, Tim These were the worst "print lines" on the body and will be challenging to remove, I might just cut it out and replace it from another kit. The trunk will be cut out as well and I'll likely replace the lid with one that I'll fabricate in brass. Couple of pics of MMR engines.
