  1. Looking good! I hope it will be finished for the 2023 Southern NNL.
  2. Alfa chassis in brass - much stronger but get something less flammable than balsa wood to help solder it together. Very nice work on that distributor.
  3. Did mine in magnesium, probably a decent reason for that color.
  4. Terrific project! Who was it talking about their L 29 project? Is there one still out there drifting around in a dusty box? Enquiring minds want to know.
  5. Never impose a deadline on yourself. Allow the work to flow as it wants too. Keep it Zen.
  6. I'd like to add that this is not only excellent quality printing, but superb CAD design work; which isn't easy. Try it sometime, it will take you a major amount of time to get to this point.
  7. Super quality 3D printed work!
  8. Excellent! And I'm really diggin' that 1970's crack finish avocado formica countertop workbench you have. Left over from kitchen remodel?
  9. Download Inkscape, import image, use method 1 as shown here: https://inkscapetutorials.wordpress.com/2013/11/27/how-do-you-rotate-in-inkscape/ save as png.
  10. These aren't combustible: https://workingsilver.com/soldering-blocks-which-one-should-i-use/
  11. The wheels look great. You will like the dashboard.
  12. I'm waiting on Modelmartin to produce one.
  13. Eric - I have also done the front suspension and wheels with holes to be hand strung. Figured you had those covered already.
  14. Save yourself the trouble on that dashboard: https://www.shapeways.com/product/8K5LADVN7/cord-l29-dashboard-124?optionId=141387896&li=marketplace
  15. I remember see this on the Finn model building site - I was following Niko's Ferraris - and thinking what an interesting and challenging project it was. Excellent work.
  16. I contacted him and he has replied. He may be able to fulfill Marco's request.
  17. Bill did a killer job on the XP-87. You can see it at our Southern NNL on November 2: http://www.acme-ipms.com/?page_id=344
