Hi Guys

Update time.

Following photos are with no surface prep at all - test print in SLS with a quick coat of acrylic so it can be photoed. Silver parts are on a seperate sprue as is the steam version chimney. With some modeling skills - primer, sanding, smoothing this can work.

Hi Guys,

Been quietly working away at this and now its complete and off for its first test build.

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

Once its been confirmed fit for use and any bugs sorted its going to be available in SLS material (aka WSF) straight away.

A FUD crane cab and jib will be an option but the chassis will only be reworked for FUD with sufficient interest.

Regards
Russ

Definitely interested. Even have some suitable wire for the crane as I broke a guitar string this weekend 8)

Yep - thats fairly well it. Our SLS is done by 3Dprint UK and personally I dont find the level of pebbledash to be any problem.

Each to their own and thats why we do both as its impossible to please everyone.

Hi

Do you have a close up photo showing the surface detail as the rough finish tends to put me off 3D printed items but I would be interested in the crane if the surface finish is very good.

Cheers
