If @Stool follows-up on this, and is agreeable, we can explore it. Even if the model is not currently set up to print portions it would be possible to create a sub-set of it that includes only the coupe top.Stool,
Can your model file be copied and modified to print only the coupe roof section, sized for 1:24? If adjusted accurately, it should fit on the 1/24 Maisto Solstice Roadster. No need to print the entire vehicle or shell, = much more affordable.
I bet many coupe openers here (ahem) would pony up cash for a paintable, drop-on roof. The Maisto version can be found on various auction sites.
Very interested, if so. LMK!
If ^^that’s^^ doable I’d consider 1.) funding a test run and 2.) donating my time to work thru fitment testing on my 1/24 Maisto model. The base of the roof replaces the deck lid. The front of the roof fits on the windshield. See attachment, below. LMK!
I don’t think Maisto produced a Wicked/Merlot/Ruby version. 😢 Try buying a silver version and paint it with Tamiya Color TS-39 Mica Red. Here’s a couple of test shots (for color, not finish), first under halogen light…
…then in indirect sun:
Also: Testor’s Enamel 1607 Gloss Custom Hot Rod Red, over Maisto’s silver, is still a pretty good match; but it shades differently as it is semi-transparent. My eyes prefer the Tamiya.
What say you, coupe-owners? Who’d pony up gas money to get a drop-on roof in 1/24?
