Hi Alain,

It's Bigboss Yapluka

I vote for:
Alpine A110
CitroŽn 2CV
Shelby Cobra (dNano version)
hot rod, which one?
57 chevy truck

This will depend on the final cost for each body.

Hi Tony, welcome

Just added your votes. The hotrod would be something like a Ford 32. The problem with hotrods and old cars with no front overhang is that there is no room for a front clip. I will try to get around that.

Some update.
I have been working on these models all january. I am now waiting for pre production samples to arrive.

The Exige was updated: more details like doors and openings joints, roof scoop, a rear diffuser, all air intakes now open, and the front + side clips have been reinforced. Link



Exige 2
Exige 3

The '72 Camaro is done This one was rejected at first print due to thin walls (the door windows were under 0.7mm thick for an unknown reason). Just need to upload a new file then check it in person and if OK it will be for sale. Link



Camaro 2
Camaro 3
Camaro 4
Camaro 5

A new model, the Shara.
I just sent this one this evening and ordered a sample. I expect it to be first printed before the end of feb. This one has snap on blower and rear chassis frame that can be removed to save weight.
Link



Shara 2
Shara 3
Shara 4
Shara 5
Shara 6
Shara 7
Shara 8
Shara 9

Oh and the adjustable sideclips are done link
Again, just waiting for a sample before I can put that for sale

Alain

Looked at the supplied links to the models and they are narrow, especially the camaro...
Any chance in making some wide f+3 r+3 models(does not have to be a camaro)?

Only the Camaro is narrow. This because I sized it to fit 98mm. In real, the Camaro is a long car and it ends up narrow with 98mm... I won't do what Kyosho does sometimes by squeezing the proportions like the very wide taxi
The Shara in 98mm has to be the widest body ever with 3.3 inches that should need something like a LM axle plus r+ 3 or 4 ! The Exige has +4.5 rear with a standard axle.

On the Z-28 (huh... mini Z 28th scale... still gets me how that works out), it looks like the front tires won't be able to turn. The front fender is really diving in under there and I'm hoping it clears. Do you have a range of motion model for the front and rear wheels?

This may be a solution if you just drop the front fenders straight down and make it like an old-school road racer with an incorporated airdam:



This one I'm just posting because it's cool:

Yes

It is close but it should clear. Because there is no offset with the Camaro or maybe -1 the wheel rotates close relative to the axle.

Once a body is valid, it is easy to edit details like airdams, wings, hoodscoops, the problem with these multiple vesions is that the shapeways shop has no categories at all. From the Z-28 (yep the name is fit) it is possible to edit the '74 Camaro with the integrated bumpers but also the Firebird/Trans Am.

Ok, just checking.

Would be a fun narrow class car, definitely the most stylish one.

So, are we going to be ordering these from you? How's this work then?

Absolutely yes please. I wouldn't even care if the millimeter increments are not notched -- just the fact that you can use screws to secure height adjustments is something I'd been waiting forever for. You the man.

Does CA glue play nice with the Shapeways plastic? Because we'll need it to adhere the clips to Kyosho/TRP bodies...

Due to the porosity of the SW plastic the CA glue will have the same effect on it than resin on fiberglass. It makes it even stronger. But I did not try glueing SW plastic on normal ABS yet.
The side clips are not notched and slide freely, this is why there are visual helpers.

@imclr8ed You order directly from Shapeways. They produced it under 10 days and send it to you via UPS. They opened a new product line in New York so that should keep the shipping costs low. Here is my Shop @Shapeways. Everything new will show on this page. What is marked "Not for sale" is under testing.

How can we change the depth on the adjustable side clips? Wider bodies require side clips that are longer (from body to chassis) than the shorter ones. Is there anything you can do with the design so that shims may be placed between the clips and the part that is glued to the body to adjust for the difference in width of the body without having the clip lose the guide? Or will this be a spec clip for each body (or made to order)?

I ordered two Exige's. What is the best way to prep the body for paint? And what paint works best on this surface?
