This is the thing that has been holding me up lately and why I had to have the pleasing relief of the boats in the post below or go mad.
It's a 1956 Corvette SS Sebring. Apparently it did one race and only the one was made.
It's the usual 1/32nd scale for a slot racing body.
But no!...now you have to send a computer file. Well, I don't do push button modelmaking, so it was down to the client to get it done from a few dimensioned sketches from me. That process began last September! I got the p/e finally drawn correctly on some American student's PC last month!
So much for the potential of computers.
Having got the p/e I had to create 10 thou recesses for the separate parts and blend them in to the final surface.
The client is delighted, but that hasn't stopped him getting 3D printed blobs done and some schmuck to clean that dross up, putting the real detail in by hand.
Needless to say, I will NOT be doing any of that nonsense.
With the Skoda rally car finished and the boats done, too, I am now up to date with that stuff, but woefully behind with the model aircraft masters. So tomorrow, the decks will be cleared and out comes the 1/76th scale master of the Pilatus PC12 Bizjet, 1/32nd scale Dragon Rapide and 1/32nd scale Junkers Ju 388 Transkit. The former, fine...the latter, I am NOT looking forward to. I try at all times to avoid toy War, but a man's gotta eat, dammit.
