Indeed.  Some may have the skill to produce the file but don't have a good printer, so a printer service would be nice. PM sent @badger re. tracks/ decals.

Indeed and having seen the quality of these I'd happily pay for them.

 

Haven't had a PM though sadly @Courageous

Id love to get a set of the Schwimmwagen wheels. I have a kit just aching for them.

Gents, thank you very much for your kind comments!

 

For those wanting to have prints of those designs but with no access to a 3D printer I´m well aware that such issue is for real and it´s of great concern to me but there is no way I could fill such gap I´m afraid.

 

It´s not my intention to become part of the aftermarket business printing for selling in this case. This decision is based on the fact that the time required for that could prevent me from designing new items, no other reason behind. I´m just an ordinary modeller.

 

However, and in an attempt of providing some assistance to the community, I could run a few casual print runs at some point. Past days I offered all the final prints I had from the development cycle of some designs to the chaps in the Missing Lynx Braille Scale Board.

 

All those prints are gone now, sorry, but just in case you wanted to take a look of these parts in printed form you have the public post here. I believe the best and safest way for these things is sharing everything openly. I also follow such simple rule during the development of my designs.

 

Once more, thank you for your positive input and watch this space!

 

Regards!

Alvaro

Hi Alvaro

 

Thank you for your informative response. I completely understand your reasons not to become involved in producing items and fully appreciate these.

 

Thank you for making these available. 

 

Kind regards

Ben

Just for the record, I have received some nice pics by Lu Rodriguez of his build of the venerable Airfix Matador with some recent (re)prints of 3D72nd designs.

Regards!

Lu used the already released Goodyear wheels for the lorry and the upcoming set of wheels and ammo boxes for the 5.5" gun.

These are some nice views of this vintage kit with new shoes

Just in case you are asking, yes... Lu painted the 3D printed parts with a green laquer matching the Airfix styrene colour -!!-

And a last picture including 5.5" gun ammo boxes and some 3D printed test rounds (work in progress) that Lu designed for his model. While turned metal parts will be superior for these things always the printed part look good too. Not perfect but not bad either.

Most excellent and I really like that he printed them in green!

 

Amazing what a difference it makes to the kit.
