First off this is not about anything G scale so apologies for that but I have noted from discussions in the Coffee Lounge that several here now own 3D printers. As like many in these interesting times we have been doing much sorting out and not for the first time we came across my wife's Sindy MGB from her childhood. Well loved and definitely playworn it is missing its windscreen, steering wheel and rear bumper. They don't matter too much but it is also missing one wheel and that will prevent the grandchildren playing with it like my wife would wish. Two of the other three wheels have cracks in them so a complete new set would be wonderful. I have searched for spare parts however have drawn a blank but then thought that as its a single piece of plastic is that the sort of thing that lends itself to being printed. The diameter is just over 70mm. The missing clip on hubcap is also unnecessary for playing. How do you go about working out the instructions to give a printer? Do you need special tools and/or software to create them? The idea of a 3d printer does interest me but at present I'm not sure I can justify the money, time or space involved. Any thoughts or maybe even an offer?
