FIAT 806 GrandPrix

The story of a nightmare This is the most poor quality model I have assembled in a long time. For me Italieri has done a terrible job with this kit, the plastic is very rigid and it is split by itself, practically all the pieces have burrs, the[...]

steam engine

result of my first experience with a 3D printer. It still has some failures due to lack of experience with the printing process, but I am very happy with all the workflow and the freedom it gives you to be able to create almost anything. Sincer[...]
