Define "comprehensive package."


Something discussed between a potential customer and a vendor in say... oh the last 2-3 years?   ;)

That's not a definition of the "comprehensive package" mentioned. I guess what I was hoping for was what the individual (who wrote this) was expecting.

Now if I take the "winking eyeball" personally, I would think that this was a slight dig at me for mentioning a new truck line awhile back. I don't think it was 2-3 years ago, however. If you want a progress report, I will say that three of Showcase Miniature's latest releases were (coincidentally) the exact models I was nearing completion on. That was somewhat of a setback.

Since I don't have the talents of the legendary Walter Vail at my disposal, I have to figure all of this out myself through trial and error. Let's just say that it's been a learning experience. Since I will not put anything out that isn't (at least) close to top notch, development has not been anywhere near rapid.

Yeah, but not everybody can design and print their own.   :P It is nice to have those in photoetched metal.

And that's is why Husker is my hero due to his ShapeWays shop.  I have more single and twin screws that Liberty City would could have more tractor dealers than car dealers.   :facepalm:

I do like the white metal for working with. Shapeways quality keeps me from buying more from that site. It takes me hours of work sanding to get everything to a useable point, and I hate paying more for that level material. I'm hoping they get some better printers soon, because Huskers designs are awesome!
