I basically agree with everything Alec said. I've started working on some 3D designs and they're not easy. I did design and successfully print some really rudimentary engines (basically just to stick something inside the cowling), but that was only really viable for 1/144 scale. The resin printer is a bit messy, since you're dealing with a tank of liquid resin, so I wasn't really set up properly for it. Once I get it unpacked, I think I'll be able to put it through it's paces. I was reasonably happy with my 1/700 plane efforts, but a) they still need a lot of sanding (mainly on the underside), b) the files I got (off Thingverse) were basically just rough outlines... okay for 1/700, but really meant for wargaming as opposed to serious scale model building, and b) I had a bit of trouble with the very thin wing tips rolling on me as the resin cured fully (under UV light). It's quite brittle once fully cured, so there's not much to do about that issue either.

Still, it's a really fun space to explore. One thing I'm interested in trying out is using it as replacement parts to fix nose or tail shapes.

@bughunter: good to know and thanks for the link. I was not aware that Mr.Color had a resin-specific primer. I used Mr.Surfacer on 3D parts in the past without issues, but I soaked them in Simple Green cleaner first, as recommended somewhere online. I plan to sand/smooth after I apply the primer, hoping to level the surface initially.

@Greg: I am really looking forward to looking over you shoulder on your experience. I feel that 3D design & printing skills will become more and more appealing to modelers as the technology matures and improves. Now if we could just figure out how to print using styrene... :D

I don't have a 3D printer myself but I know someone that does and he's getting a scanner soon hopefully so I'll be getting him to scan my favourite kits/slot cars and I'll be able to have a heap of them without having to wait until someone sells them on ebay.
I'm hoping I can get him to scale up a Boomerang so I can have the only 1/24 version on the Planet

I cleaned items I've gotten with shapeways with dish soap and water, and succesfully primed with tamiya fine surface primer. Had no problem with adhesion.

Looks like a fascinating project Alec. 3D printing is remarkable opportunity for modellers - everything is potentially available to us now.... we just need to design it.
