Mathijs Beenhakker Hi Kars, do you have a holder/bit for grinding disks with that dremmel...i use that holder and two old wheels/rims of a Tamiya F1 kit 1 front 1 rear ...Most rubber tyres will fit and instead of grinding on the surface of the tyre, you can then spin the tyre with your dremmel and just use sanding paper pressed against it which will give you a smoother and more natural look on the running surface....you can also if you use a finer sanding paper just remove the center line, take a cloth and paint Thinner and create the fresh look before a warm up lap, practice etc by spinning the tyre on the cloth with thinner...its just a tip
Steve Wilson No Mathijs, I was commenting to Kars (not you) on the fact I couldn't believe this was six years ago and how the time has flown by... Nothing to do with your comment, I didn't even read it.
Kars Jans No, i downloaded the drawings from the web. This was printed by a pro 3D printing company. This way the body was quite smooth. I would not advise printing this on a home printer. The result will be too rough. I worked for a company doing scale 1/4 models, so believe me, it's not what you would like to have. On this there was only one worry, filling and smoothening the seams..... And unfortunately some silvering on the decals. The test on the spoon was super, it turned out a bit wrong on the model. I think i will do a second one and hope the decals will come out a bit better.

Chris Greathouse That's really interesting! How much did a printing like that cost? (and currency) It's very cool.

Kars Jans At that moment i paid 175 euro....It was ordered through an intermediate. I now found a company myself that wants about 100 euro. But i don't know if the print will be as good....

Chaz Gordon I would expect a home printer might be worth it at the highest quality setting and some time with filler. I've got the Flashforge Creator on my wish list. I've also heard the Photosensitive resin printers produce very smooth prints

Chaz Gordon Although I'd avoid the 2018 cars with all their fiddly aero bits if I had to fill and sand everything.

Kars Jans You really wouldn't like to sand the front wing, too fragile..... Also the rear wing is very thin.... Even on my 1/4 scale LaFerrari and 1/8 Lotus C-01 the sanding was a hell of a job and very time consuming. Trust me, it would not work on this model. I am however, not familiar with a home based photosensitive resin printer.
