Update November 2017

“It was nice while it lasted?”

Well, as Murphy's Law goes, "You really thought that relying on Shapeways to produce some of your new items would work out??"
Shapeways has dramatically increased the prices on the HP Nylon that I was using for some of my latest parts, so those particular
nylon items will no longer be available.  They will still be available in higher-quality materials directly from my Shapeways store.
The affected items are:
FMR-135
FMR-136
FMR-137
FMR-138
FMR-139
FMR-140

A couple of orders have been affected and I have contacted those customers.

 

Update October 2017

“New Items for the Revell 1/25 Early Bronco”

It’s been several months since the last update and business has been great! I appreciate everyone who has placed an order with me and I have worked hard to keep the boxes flowing out the door. All the orders these past few months have made it tougher to get new items into the pipeline, but now it’s time to unleash a new round of resin and 3D-printed sets!

First up are the replacement Early Bronco grilles. The Revell kit grille lacks the slight bow in the center, and these replacements provide that bow plus more detail. FMR-118 is a plain grille without chrome letters or perimeter molding. It has the early-style turn signals used from 1966-1970. FMR-119 has the 71-up turn signal lenses, chrome ornament letters, and the stainless molding around the grille. For both grilles, the kit lenses are needed. Each grille is $4.

FMR-129 is a set of simple rectangular off-road bumpers for the Early Bronco. The front bumper has a reinforced bull bar and the rear bumper has a standard 2” receiver. Both bumpers have separate d-ring shackles. This set costs $7.


FMR-130 is a pair of 9,000-lb winches of a style and brand commonly used on light off-road vehicles. This set is not specifically made for the Bronco kit, and can be used with lots of other trucks. The winch assembly includes the main winch body with separate selector lever, a cable fairlead, winch hook, and wire to wrap around the winch’s drum. I also throw in some bonus tow hooks. Decals round out the package. Two complete winch assemblies are in the set, which is priced at $8.


FMR-131
is a heavy-duty winch bumper. It mounts directly to the Bronco’s frame and works with the FMR-130 winch. As of Oct-22-17, this item is still in preproduction, but it will be available soon. Price is $4.


A set of four 1/25 scale 33x12.50R-15 Mud-Terrain T/A tires is item FMR-132. Not made exclusively for the Bronco, but this size tire sure looks good on it. These tires directly fit the FMR-105 wide steelie wheels, FMR-107 5-slot mags, and the new FMR-134 Classic III wheel sets. Also includes a sheet of white letter tire decals! The raised letters can be painted if you want, but the decals are a quicker solution. Set of four is $12, but for a limited time I will sell them for $10 when purchased with a wheel set. FMR-133 ($12/set of 4) is the same tire, but with a realistic bulge and flat contact patch.


FMR-134 is a set of four 15x8.5” Classic III wheels. These wheels have the Revell socket on the backside and will mount directly to the Bronco kit. They fit the new 33” tires, as well as the previous 31” tires. There are two front wheels with locking hubs and two rear wheels with caps. Price of this set is $5.  I also have a version of this wheel set made for the AMT 1972 Blazer coming very soon. That Blazer set is FMR-128.


Items FMR-135 through FMR-140 are a new way of doing things for me. I am selling these items only as 3D-printed parts (not cast resin), and I offer each item two ways, either directly from me or through Shapeways. The versions that you can buy from me are printed in a tough, high-resolution nylon material that requires a bit of effort if you want to make it smooth. The versions I sell on Shapeways are printed in a smooth material (FUD, FXD, or Black Acrylate) and shipped directly from Shapeways. The trade-off is time versus expense. The parts I sell directly have a lead time of up to three weeks, but they are much less expensive than the parts that Shapeways can ship directly to you in about a week. In addition. the parts I sell directly require some priming and sanding work to get them really smooth, but the more expensive versions only need simple prep before they're ready for paint. UPDATE: DUE TO A PRICE INCREASE AT SHAPEWAYS I WILL NO LONGER SELL THE NYLON VERSIONS! 

FMR-135 is a family roll bar. “Family” because it protects the rear seat as well as the front seats. This item requires a slight modification to the passenger side of the kit instrument panel-- a notch needs to be cut into the end of the dash pad. The kit’s hard top will fit over this bar, but why would you want to hide it? The nylon version I sell is $8, and the version shipped from Shapeways is either $23 (FUD) or $13.50 (Black Acrylate). Click here for this item on Shapeways.

FMR-136 is another family roll bar with a different, beefier bar arrangement. This bar requires the dash pad be removed from the kit’s instrument panel. This bar fits underneath the kit’s hard top, but is really meant to be displayed with the top removed. The tough nylon version is $10, and the smooth version from Shapeways is $26 (FUD) or $15.50 (Black Acrylate). Link to this item on Shapeways.

FMR-137 and FMR-138 are tubular front bumpers for the 1/25 Early Bronco that are identical except for the position of the winch mount. FMR-137 has a top mount that positions the winch high on the bumper, and FMR-138 has a low mount, which puts the winch inside the bumper cage. Both bumpers mount directly to the Bronco’s frame and feature light mounting tabs. The nylon versions are $4 each directly from me, and the Shapeways versions are $10.50-$14.25 (FMR-137 Link to Shapeways) and $10-$14 (FMR-138 Link to Shapeways).


FMR-139 and FMR-140 are tubular rear bumpers that match the front bumpers. They are the same basic design and feature 2” receivers, but FMR-139 has a swingaway spare tire carrier. FMR-139 is $6 when purchased from me, and $9.50 when ordered from Shapeways. FMR-140 is $3 from me, and $6-$6.50 from Shapeways.

That's it for now!
