GT-500K (Eleanor Mustang)

I'd thought i'd show you this transkit as it's created with 3D Printing!
it has a strange texture, not unlike raw cut timber. in fact i think if you painted it brown it'd look like it was made of wood. As you can see it's pretty rough and will need to be heavily sanded. it's very light, like styrene plastic. to my eye, it looks very accurate. it also includes the hood, bootlid and doors.

3D printers are cool, be very careful removing the supports tho, it IS a very brittle plastic used, so if you get too rough, you could snap a lot more than you want.
My boss has been stocking up for his 3D printer, which he should have soon and then I'll be hassling him to print me stuff :)
Will be watching to see how you go on smoothing this out.

wheels for this are from a Jada cobra diecast. it was supposed to be 1/24, but it's more like 1/18
