  1. A Italeri kit was used as a base, the body was sheet plastic with putty applied to it. Not very well. which caused a bit of work for me. It wasn't resin cast.
  2. I acquired this from one of this forum's members (Thanks, Eric). He got it from a well known South African resin caster, but is not his work. Who made it is unknown. It was really third rate work and I spent a considerable amount of time smoothing out the body, reshaping the trunk and correcting other areas. I'm fairly satisfied with the results. I consider the Kellner coupe to be the most attractive of all the Royales.
  3. Bernard, My Maserati A6GCS from South America looks different, also. The panel lines are cleaner and narrower. Seats are different and the door line on the left side is different. I suspect what you got is a knock off.
  4. How many unfinished projects do you have on your workbench?
  5. The Mangusta haunts me and the quicker I get it done, the better I can sleep.
  6. Thanks for the compliments! I'm now finished.
  7. Chrome decals were made using the Decalprofx system. It's a very "fiddly" and difficult system, but once mastered, can produce excellent chrome decals.
  8. I use Prusa SL1 for support generation. It's very simple to use. ChiTubox support generation is awful, but I use it for slicing and think it works alright, but I don't have any experience with other slicing programs.
  9. Both Maserati and Mangusta are files from the net. They are not printable , however, without a great deal of work to modify them to be printable. The Mangusta suspension, chassis, wheels, etc, was designed by me.
  10. It could, but I'm designing it to fit in my Anycubic Photon.
  11. Thanks! ....but you ain't seen nothin' yet.
  12. The body was fairly smooth to begin with, being high-poly ( many small flat planes make up the surface) and the resin printing method produces a smooth surface. Much better than, for instance, Shapeways, which is a fuzzy, nylon like material.
  13. That metallic paint shows the bodywork flaws.
