  • 3D Printed Porsche 904

    Just finished my first 3D printed car, a kit from TA71. Used a pod and NSR Shark 21k. The vac formed lexan clear parts were new to me too. Too light to feel in my fingers and so prone to static cling that it it was almost funny. The headlight covers were the only things that survived my mangling. Windshield and side windows from plastic bakery carton.
    Pictured next to my Monogram/MRRC bodied brass chassis with the 21k Piranha. Weight is 74gm for the brass and 63gm for the printed car. On the track the new one is quiet and smooth. Quick on the straights and tippy in the corners with lap times about equal. A few grams of lead lateral and low and it will be a nice runner with my other early 60’s cars.

    I have always loved the 904. It was on the cover of a Road & Track magazine I bought in the early 1960s. That looks great. Looks like you spotted the detail on the wheels/tires that the RTR car manufacturers miss. The rear wheels and tires are much larger and wider than the fronts. Good job.
