While Shapeways seems to be the only shop in town for what I am doing with 3d printing, I certainly hope that other services will become available in the near future, or that technology will evolve to allow small designers like myself an opportunity to own a high-res printer.
That said, I have kept UPS busy shipping me boxes over the past months, and while most of these go to ebay, I have managed to finish a few myself. Just to show you how insane I am, here is a recent collection of models, soaked in Bestine and ready for buyers. Anyone need a Kenworth 900? I have 20 now, and 10 more to soak. Anyway, it's funny how addictions lead to more addictions. Where will it end?
On a different note, I have several new models that are either printed and waiting for me to finish an initial version, or waiting to be printed and shipped to me. I hope to illustrate these in the near future. So far, I have only provided the 3d renderings of the models I have been working on.
Lastly, I have seen a few requests for a cabover tractor, so decided with a Kenworth K100 for the first (mid 80's version). I am thinking about a Pete 352 next (70's version). I guess that new layout project just keeps getting sidelined...
