  1. Model Monkey was unable to print it.
  2. I’m sorry I don’t want to ghost you guys. The CG models are complete, the holdup is the difficulty of casting something this complex and tiny. It can be done but I’m basically an artist and don’t want to spend all my time doing that. Also the cost of high resolution 3D printing is very expensive. I have talked to two well know manufacturers about talking over production but so far no takers. If anyone knows someone willing to take it on let me know.
  3. We are all in this together and we will come through together. I’m looking at this as a time out to recalibrate the country. Just hang in. Robert
  4. There are several services that will do it like: DOOB https://www.doob3d.com or Twindom https://web.twindom.com I've experimented with one of them. I asked for just the file which included a mesh and the images. You see, they use an array of cameras, usually around 96 of them arranged around the subject. The pictures are used in a process called photogrammetry that generates a computer model. The service usually generates a full color model in a plaster like substance but if you get the mesh from them you can use Shapeways to print in any scale you like in a resin but you will have to paint it yourself. It cost me $50 for just the files using a place in San Francisco.
  5. Another great subject! They have carved out a nice niche for themselves.
  6. It's definitely a reissue of the old kit. https://www.airfix.com/uk-en/shop/new-for-2020.html?utm_campaign=2567340_Airfix - Workbench - Week 41 2019%2F2020&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Hornby PLC&_%24ja=tsid%3A71284&dm_i=2DJZ,1J0Z0,231SGW,55M1L,1
  7. A lot of potential customers may be holding off for the Wing Nuts Wings version. There is only so much room one has for these monsters.
  8. Wow! It makes me want to get a modern navy jet just to have a reason to buy one. Excellent work.
  9. I haven’t seen this film but will probably try to watch it when it streams. My biggest obstacle is that I never got into video games which seems to be inspiration for the visuals. I also worked in the visual effects industry and how what’s possible. This film could have been realistic and still spectacular. My understanding is that young men make up the majority of moviegoers so that was the target audience. However I believe they are more sophisticated than the producers give them credit for.
  10. That’s a relief. Less temptation = Build the stash
  11. I've been getting the error message for 3 days now. That's one way to save money.
