That would be nice.
Hoping you will be getting back on this cool build!
Man I read every post, this thing is amazing! As crazy as it is, I love it! (getting lost in model building and losing track of time is one of my favorite part of the hobby too)
Hey everybody! long time coming update.... unfortunately no real update on the actual truck, other than after the NNL I pulled it out of a box and started thinking about it again. My plans are to try and get this done for next years final toledo NNL.
The real update here is on the motorcycle, I was all set to build it using the layered die-cut styrene technique, but then had a change of heart. I had recently designed and 3d printed a set of wheels on Shapeways, and i couldn't believe how much more reasonable the prices were. Especially for the frosted detail plastic. So I took the basic side profile for the motorcycle, tossed it into my 3D program and started to develop the rest of the frame and accessories. After a couple hours I had a decent frame, fork, split tanks and shaft drive diff. Uploaded to the site and I was amazed that shapeways only wanted 12.00 for these 5 pieces, much more efficient than the hours I was going to have to deal with layering styrene.
The results really speak for themselves... I think this partnered with scratchbuilt elements should work just fine for a 1:25th scale Ford banger powered boardtracker!
Here is the 3d model:
and then the print straight out of the bag... its insanely nice.
Awesome bike !!!! Man that's gonna work fantastic with your bronco
Absolutely outstanding stuff!!
A Model A Ford powered bike? COOL!!!!!!!
You continue to show what the future holds for our hobby, between the 3D printing and die-cut styrene techniques. Yes, it's available now, but you show us the potential if we put our minds to it
Really glad to see you back on this one
Very cool, glad to see you back on this project.
Glad to see you back on this. How much cleanup will the bike need for painting?
Oh, goody, goody, goody!!!
That 3d printed bike is OUTSTANDING! Incredible!
