        Great era for GP cars, the one I didn't know and had to google was the third down on the right which is a Cooper-Bristol T23

                Hi All,

                Glad you like them, I've added the names to help

                Rastas - I have no chassis but I know another member CCobra did a lot of work for the Auto Union AVUS Chassis.

                Cheers

                  ok thanks, NimROD . do you scan the models to get the files or find them elsewhere , I seen a vid that showed a little bit about scanning a bonet , just wanted to know if that's something to look into down the road?

                    HI All,

                    An Update, but first,

                    Rastas - Hi Mate, no scanned models, all are freely available in the Net, they just need a little clean up and fixing to print right.
                    Remember I'm still pretty much a hack at this, some models have been heavily modified such as the Ferrari 350 CAN-AM, I'm partial to that model as it took my over 6 weeks to get it just right.

                    Bugatti T251

                    This body one printed great and the Scaley Ferrari 375 chassis fits almost perfectly. Printed with Z= 0.1mm, it would be like injected plastic at 0.05mm.

                          Hello Nimrod,
                          I'm loving the Lancia D50! With resin versions its challenging getting the side-tanks lined up vertically and longitudinally so having them designed in is ace.

                            Hi Leo,

                            For the Lancia D50 It was an exercise in keeping as many parts on the print as possible.
                            I wasn't sure if it would print well at all, but surprisingly, came out great
                            Using the PLA+ it is also very strong and flexible.
                            If there were any weak points, it's easy enough to reinforce the model in the next print.
