Thanks Joe. I always liked the black widow paint scheme.

Exactly 23mm.

Decided to give the new material Carsten found on Shapeways a go and slimmed down the thicknesses. There is a body and set of truck side frames on its way to me in both the frosted and frosted ultra detail material. Guess we'll see.

The new tests have arrived. At first I was quite disappointed. The finish on the frosted detail is bad, the parts a warped and the parts are broken. But, then I found a note from Shapeways stating "Oops! We are really not happy with the quality of this print. We are printing your model again to make it right. In the meantime, we thought you may still like to have this one for some post-production testing". Nice! The best part is that I can mess around with paint and assembly without having to ruin a perfectly good part. Thanks Shapeways. Anyway here are the parts I got...

Ultra Detail Detail


Due to the colour it is hard to get a good picture of the detail, so I painted frosted (top) and ultra (bottom) truck side frames for comparison.

Looks like I'm going to gear towards the ultra.

Thanks, Gents. Hit the side with a bit of undercoat so the details and surface texture can be seen better. I think I might rotate the printing 90 degrees to get the flatter texture on the sides.
