    Actually, to get a resin printer to fit an "average" size 1:32 body flat on the print plate you are looking at an "XL" model =$$$ not $$$$ I have an Anycubic Photon Mono X and can print big American barges flat on the plate. I tend not to though preferring a 2° tilt on both X & Y axis with a Z lift of 4mm. Printing at 0.04mm layers a bodyshell usually takes 3 hours.

    I have not had internet for quite some time and have just been able to catch up with the series and results. The last event I saw was round 2... so, was happy to see that my little effort completed the series without falling apart and disgracing itself. However, it is with great glee that indeed my little T-53 has been endowed with the John Smedley constructor's award for this year.... I feel a little ashamed that I have not been able to comment on the series rounds and thank those after each event for the wonderful dedication committed to running each event. Thank you to all entrants who produced some wonderful models that my little effort shared the track to relive the '60's. As with many of the entrants, it was almost an 11th hour decision to complete a build that was mothballed for some three years, and very little progress had been made other than the basic chassis plates. The body was hardly touched and parts had to be found from the large collection of many other projects. Everything else went on hold until I completed the model - and I was very releived when it all seemed to hold together after just a handful of laps around a rushed assembly of some of my Scalextric track... and mailed off to reach the entry deadline... I am indeed chuffed that it completed the series and am gobsmacked on receiving the John Smedley award..... Special mention to the drivers, marshalls and back-up staff who are unsung heroes - it was very pleasing to see some faces and names of those who contributed... thank you. Finally, a very special thank you to Alan - who, under the very troublesome constraints and restrictions of getting the series completed due to Covid and the associated unsurity of how to determine/plan the series - thank you. This year's John Smedly award will be treasured for many years to come and will take pride of place within display of my growing collection. I very much look forward to next year, and hope that we can all be free of this rancid disease which has put just so many of us under a threat that we have not seen before in our lifetimes.... I look forward to a final wrap of each car and what is suggested to improve performance.... I am still very much learning this "black art" in stratchbuilding and tuning.... maybe my effort next year will produce better times, but overall - I am delighted with coming away with such an honour of taking this year's John Smedley constructor's trophy... frats, Rosco
