No progress sorry but the house is built (that only took 2 years) and now I have finished building a shed that I can finally move the project into (well soon anyway, still have a few more things that require my attention first) so soon!

...or at least very slow progress at the moment. Finding it hard to find time now that I have to drive out to do anything on it. Things will pick up again when I'm in the new house and it's back in my garage (Sept)

The body's now fully printed and I've still got 12x 1kg reels left for the dash so that means the doors, boot, bonnet and body have taken 52x 1kg reels. No more assembly yet because I've been busy moving out of our house (which is done now & both cars relocated to their new home for the next year).
I'm preparing a post on how I slice up the parts which a few people have requested coming up soon

I've had a few people request this so I threw a facebook page together, look for Replica DB4

...still assembling though, this time I'm trying to assemble the border first then work in. With the boot I did one layer rows and attached them from the top and bottom in, I was surprised when there was a gap in the middle, I was expecting with the 0.5mm rail the printer prints that I would have to sand it a bit to fit snug.
I put this down to the inaccuracies created when the print peals off the bed (due to inconsistent cooling rates) when it rises off the bed it also distorts out or in so if you don't compensate for this when you attach it all together you end up with things like this.
I've got some weights on it now so I'll take an in-progress picture later, for now here's a picture of my 250 GTO kit I built 10 years or so ago, it's also got the RB25DET in it that I'm planning to use in this (but I would like to transplant the v12 from a 750 I have been sporadically working on into it one day, hard to work on something that's already working though)
