    My pleasure Mate I'm sorry it took so long Cheers NimROD
  2. Outstanding! From a great print to a spectacular finish, Beautiful Build Mate, Love it Cheers NimROD
  3. Thank you Guys, All these were found free on the net, just took a little time to clean them up and make them printable Free STL files if you want them. @Letouriste89 - all the ones above were printed at 0.1mm Z axis on an FDM printer (Ender 3) Others have printed them in resin. Cheers NimROD
  4. Hey Tonyaussie, There is a free Hino 500 2018 3D model at 3DWarehouse that could be edited to what you want. Pm me if your interested. Cheers Nimrod

    Hey All, @Oldskool62- Honestly, it was mailed out on Friday. Thank you for being so patient. Can't wait to see pics of this build. @rosco01 - There are a number of ways to make the body stronger. A couple I've used are impregnating the body with superglue. Body is much stronger but now more rigid, not as flexible. A layer of PVA white glue to the interior of the body, more strength and a little more flexibility then the superglue Cheers Vlad

    Hi All, Been busy again, but a little free time coming up. @oldschool - sorry for the slow ship from Vlad, but it will be going out tomorrow in the mail. L hope your still excited @knoath - Not sure in resin mate, happy to share the file if you want a print it. It may be a little too thin though. @rosco01 - Thank mate, but remember I only worked on the wings, fenders and spoilers, the rest was already there. BTW, it has the same, or ver close wheel base to the ninco sierra. Also happy to share the file but it is thin @ 0.4mm wall thickness, as I adjusted the Horizontal fill to 0.25mm in cura Please send any requests to Vlad@cadstruk.com Cheers NimROD Ps the Alfa is next
  7. A very Beautiful car and a great file to print, nice job Thank you for sharing, will be looking up more of his designs Cheers NimROD
  8. Hiya All, I'm fortunate enough to have both FDM and Resin printers, but have only printed with the FDMs. IMO, FDM is better suited for 1/24 scale cars, the prints come out very nicely detailed and quite smooth and the resin ones for 1/32 and smaller. In saying that, I can print a 1/32 body with good detail and keep it very smooth. But keep in mind, that it all comes down to the quality of the file. An ultra smooth file with details adjusted for 3D printing will produce a great print. Similar if you were to do a good resin body, it needs to be very smooth and have exaggerated details. I can say this as I've had the opportunity to work with a number of files of differing quality and it's very obvious by the out put. There has also been a lot of improvement in the slicing software too, big difference from 3 years ago. It's still early days for this hobby but you can get so much out of 3D printing for the small setup costs. The fantasy miniatures people have a heap of web based applications to create your own character or scenery and provide a high quality 3D file ready for printing. It's still very early days, but I want to enjoy these unique cars now while I can still pull a trigger. Cheers NimROD

    Hi All, I know it's been a while, but it's getting harder to find time, too many projects. Unfortunately, I find it hard to say no when I get requests LOL. @Kevan - Yep sure is Mate @Manuel Sanchez - They will all be freely available when made printable. May I ask, for all the members interested in these cars, put forward a list of which car should be next and so on. I'll try and get one done a week, should be doable as most are just external bodies. One list though. @Oldschool62 - It's finally printed! I tried to get as much detail on the body as possible, printed not to bad. After 42 hours this is the result with no cleanup, yet. It was an ambitious print, 0.4mm shell thickness - 3 shells, 0.6mm Z height, , 100% infill, 0.25mm Horizontal expansion. 15% support Cheers Vlad
  10. Hiya Phil, Thank you for the kind words my friend Cheers Vlad
  11. Hi All, Unfortunately, I thought there was very little interest in the Mirage cars so I let them fall behind new projects. I'll get them done in the coming weeks, but I still have OLDSKOOL's Nissan to print. @OLDSKOOL - I will get it done this week Mate promise!! I've been working with GDSLOT on the full 1984 F1 grid recently, just have to get the chassis sorted and will be ready to issue bodies. I believe I have the full 1973 F5000 grid, I'll start that in another thread when ready Thank you for the support everyone Cheers NimROD
  12. @Vinno & terry, C'mon guys I thought the Mirage cars would stir a lot more emotion, being all hard to find and stuff. Oh well I suppose this pic may be more your style, although it's not the T332, but I do have a T330 as well. For now Enjoy the T300 which to me looks very cool. Cheers NimROD
  13. Hola buenas tardes soy de Argentina nuevo en esto del slot vendes los Stl de los F1?

      Hi DHC79,

      Are you after the 1950's or the 1930's Gprix cars?

    Hiya All, Now that the Bluebird as almost done (promise Oldskool, this weekend for sure) Here are some of the other models waiting to be cleaned up, most are already there as they are much simpler models than the Nissan BB. More still lurking on the hard drive Cheers NimROD
