One month and that level of workmanship is, to me, simply amazing.  That big a scale is very difficult to work with. Flaws show up way easier and I don't see any flaws at all. The body on that thing is SMOOTH and the detail in the wheel covers is outstanding.   A limited run of three sounds special to the lucky two who get them

 

Man, thanks! I do appreciate the validation. It wasnt as easy or straightforward as I was expecting the process to be, but thats how we learn right? But I promise you there are lots of little imperfections. :-) That said, the overall feel is solid, and hopefully its a unique object in its own right.

That's a beautifully built model of a beautiful car, well done.  It's really an eye opener for me to see CAD and 3D printing being used so successfully in our hobby.  Thanx for providing all those photos of your progress steps.  Cheers.

Steve, youre totally welcome.

Yeah, 3D printing tech has come a long way, and it still has a long way to go, bit Im convinced it is part of our future.

Dale, It came out fantastic. A one-month build of anything is fast to me! You did a great job. - Art

What a GREAT build of a very cool LSR. It was a pleasure watching you problem solve and work with different Techniques to make this build happen....and in 1 month. I'm usually still in the planning stages in that time. Outstanding job Prototype...

Wonderful concept and excellent execution. Thank you for sharing this project with us. It has been a pleasure watching this come together, and in only one month, too. Very impressive indeed, and a gorgeous model of a beautiful and significant car. Very well done.
