    This 3D printed model was offered 15 years ago by Mark4Design, but long out of production. I'm very happy that I'm now in possession of the design work and therefore able to make those cars again. Printed at home, not Shapeways. Steep learning curve to get those settings on the printer right, but I'm now quiet happy with the result.

    Nailed it! Are you into resin printing now? Those settings are a beast to get dialed in.

    Not only printing, still do my metal designs and also going to do some "hybrids" metal-print.

    Nice model. Which era covers this kind of car ?

    Bulit between 1963 and 1980, so I would expect not too many of those on the rails today
