    Hello, hello, hello!

    That is beautiful! Beautiful wheels!

    (How about some details? What materials were used? How long did it take? )


    -Very nice model!

    Hey guys, itīs an cubside model and the material is SLS. The spoke rims are made in aluminium and interior is leather. Some parts (frontlight, taillights ect.) made in metal. The streering whell is real wood.

    Again, beautiful work!

    How thick are you printing the body? and are you reinforcing it with anything?

    The headlights and taillights are SLS or CNC? -and the lenses? are they a clear SLA? Most of the clear that I have seen still has a purple or bluishness to them, but in thinner Austin Healey 3000 scale 1/8 section and small they would appear clear.

    How about the tires, are they one of the new rubbery SLA?

    In addition to talent you are well connected to make all this. The real car was scanned?

    A beautiful model!

    Thank you for sharing! -Don

    I print in 1.5 mm thickness, the lenses are casted in clear resine. The tires are real rubber. Itīs not a 3D scan, onley drawing in CAD.

    Thank you Karsten,

    I am surprised that you are printing so thin? It must not weigh very much?
    Very nice computer modeling as well!

    Thank you!
