    Shapeways Mail Call!

    Time for me to start building.


    Even though I modeled these buggers from scratch, they were filling my screen as I worked... I was not prepared for just how slim this Lotus is. It makes my old Tyco S Indy look like a minivan. Maybe I should repaint it to look like the Goodyear blimp!






    Holy Shine-olie Batman... that bugger is small!



    And then there is this old gal... some say it floats. Some say it flies. I dunno, but I feel like breaking out into song!







    Time to go find some silicone O-Rings for those wagon wheels!

    First prime through color coats. My tape job on the yellow stripe messed up the edge, but I'm feeling too lazy to strip it down and start over. I think I'll just add a black transition line, then decals and clear coat so I can get her on the track soon!

            Just printed a new version of the vintage F1 body in the high-def tough resin. The dropouts are holding up. And I tweaked the transmission box to fit around the crown gear more easily. Time to build it up with some better looking wheels than this Mega G set up.

                  WOW!! Couldn't believe that this was HO scale. Amazingly well done. I can't recall seeing a "snake" on the starboard side though - I guess I will have to re-watch the movie.

                Thanks Peter! Yes, the serpent horn is on her Starboard.

                  I don't ever recall seeing that before. I WILL have to re-watch the movie this weekend and look for it.
