Did some more work on the 3D printed chassis for the Super Shells Ferrari 156 Sharknose. Following redesign work at the front of the chassis I have done a test print and had it running on track and all seems to be working ok.

As a further test of my new printer I decided to print the chassis and sidewinder pod for the Airfix Porsche 917K kit.
I have also printed another copy of the ERA body so that I can compare it to the resin print that I have.

Received my new Anycubic Mega Zero 3D printer this afternoon. Only took about a hour to put together and get my first print going. My first test print.

Received this Pactra Lotus 30 Vac body today. I don't really need the body but thought if it's the correct size I could cut the windscreen out for use on my Hawk body.

Still can't get my Da Vinci Junior 1.0 3D printer to work, been cleaning it all day and still no joy. I have a nasty feeling the extruder is the problem as I'm getting very fine strings of plastic and lots of big blobs of plastic. So I have decided to order a new printer and have got an Anycubic Mega Zero 2.0 on order.

Tried to print some chassis today, as I have a new idea for the Super Shells Sharknose Ferrari, but it's playing up and I can't get anything to print properly.

Received this Super Shells White Lotus Elite body kit. Will need to do some research on this as I know they raced in the 1964 Goodwood TT 2000 GT but haven't found any real details yet.

I've added some videos of the following cars running on my Airfix Monte Carlo layout..
