What's with the fairy floss Rastas? 1/32 or 1/24 scale?

I am talking to a mate about printing an ERA and a D50 - just need to look up the dimensions

cheers

That's a bit of a test run brought some filment from the same company as usual but this time I was sent a different brand , so have to adjust my heat settings back that why it so stringy . The d50 is in 1/24 160mm long ,60mm wide and 40mm high. 1/32 120,45,30 I'll get back to you on the ERA I must of wrote it down in another place.

The ERA is a bit of a hard one to find out the length and width but using the Hight I came up with these figures length 168.46mm, width 42.42mm and 46.58mm high.
Cheers.

I couldn't find the overall length either John only the dimension Beardy posted.

I am guessing if I scale it to a 100mm wheelbase the rest will fit in proportion. I will do the D50 first and see how it turns out. I still have resin Maserati, BRM and Mercedes W196 that I need to finish so next time I get in the mood to work on some projects I will tackle those first I think.

I am building 2 Talbot Lagos and an Alfa at the moment from Merit clone kits - 1 for me and the others for friends - I really need to get them finished.

cheers

Yes that's all I could find too, but in the scaling I just used the high and this is how it came out against the Maserati and a BRM , Ferrari, and two Smer model body's ERA is in the middle. It doesn't look out of scale those cars of the 1930s were all sorts of shapes and sizes!

The D50 was only a short car and then the Alfa's and Mercedes were rely big,long and wide after watching some racing video from the time helps getting a sense of scale.

That Ferrari 555 looks great. I might have to get my friend to print that one....

I have sent you an email about the ERA John.

The Talbot 26C had a wheelbase of 2,502 mm so a touch longer than the ERA @ 104.25mm

cheers
