    ๐Ÿ“ 3D printer choice?

    LewZ, I used "Molotow liquid Chrome", but also have "Green Stuff World, Chrome Metal". They are Alcohol based, so the pigment lays flat as it dries. Easy to use, but not tolerant of any alcohol based cleaner or of added lacquers, where it lifts the pigment and turns to normal silver paint effect.

    I would also say that I use AutoCad Fusion 360 for fittings design, and Blend3r and meshmixer for figures. All of which have their free versions.

    Hi Steve,
    The choice of manufacturer is down to you, and I expect that you will hear of several good budget printers here.

    I've found that resin printers match my requirements for fittings, because of the detail required. They do have an odour that means they may not be suited for in the home. They also need a little more clean-up and a separate curing machine.

    My choice on budget system is the Elegoo Mars series. Anycubic also do a matching system. Both excellent.

    There is a learning curve, but I'm not a young man and it's not too steep. There are plenty of helpful Youtubes, etc.

    What ever you decide on, Best wishes.๐Ÿ‘

    Hi Pete,

    Send me a sketch of the sizes that you need, and I'll see what I can do for you.

    Try giving SLEC a call. They are really helpful. If not, come back to me and I'll see if I can CAD an stl for you to print. It may take a couple of weeks though.

    I was always taught that, if you roll your hand into a fist, with your thumb straight out, your fingers point in the direction of rotation and your thumb is the direction of movement. Thus RH works with the right hand and LH works with the left hand.

    Very similar to the Schilling rudder idea, which improved low rev manoeuvrability.

    Are they what we used to call "Lash barges"? If so, I didn't know they were still in use.
