Hello all,

Long time since I've posted, this is a build I started on Sunday and it's based on my Sketchup drawings.
I'm  quite pleased with it so far;

I'll update if you're interested in my progress!

Cheers,

Brilliant! What are the specs of your 3D printer? I'm flirting with the idea of getting one...

It's a really cheap Chinese machine called a CR-10.
I've had a good few printers (5 to be precise) I've found this particular machine to be more than capable  - it has a 300x300x400mm build area and it was less than £350 to buy.

Ok, that's just... wow! It's stuff like this that makes me wish I could afford a 3D printer. Of course, then I'd have to learn more than the very basics of 3D modelling, but it would be worth it! Looking forward to seeing how you'll do the roof.
If you ever print out a '3 Doctors' era Brachacki (altered) you'd even have the colour darn-near perfect!
