Excellent work! Coming along very nicely.

I see you even have the drain plugs. The big one sits directly under the engine oil pan so it can be drained.

Cheers

Hello!
Here are the photos I promised:

As you can see I got a spare tranny cover from the printer. I plan to make the tunnel cover and the toolbox cover from styrene plate:

Most important would be if it fits - that is if I got the dimensions right. Luckily it's not so bad:

The parts are usable with some filling on the front and on the surfaces where the support structures attached. The printer also had to make a few holes in the part, I plan to plug them with styrene rod. If I printed the parts on Shapeways the last two problems wouldn't be there.

The rear plate has the worst fit:

Looks like while designing it I missed about 1,5mm of height - I plan to fix it in the next version.

I also got my axles printed, right out of printer they look like this:

Rear axle:

Front axle:

Both axles have a hole right through to stiffen them with steel wire and hep them from bending under stress and heat. Front axle offers to have the front wheels poseable as "steered" to left or right.

The above parts will most probably soon be available on Shapeways, in case somebody needs them.

Thanks for looking, have a nice day

Paweł
