They were just sideframes that were glued to a sanded down truck. That was like 15 years ago.

Well, you've got one truck.  You can use that as a master to make more.   ;)

Sounds like a job for the nifty new Three Dimensional Electronic Printing Machine Chris just acquired!  :D

I believe several variations of Fox Trucks are available from Panamint Models on Shapeways, as well as a bunch of other "old time" stuff in N.

Always Enjoyed Greggs posts. If you google his name, some pics of his stuff are still out there in the Web World.

Yeah, go for the Shapeways frames now.  That was a good first test for a Sherline CNC and machinable wax as a mold for resin.  Worked great, and was something Bryan Bussey has since perfected with his heavyweight sides.  But not the best solution now for a Fox truck frame.

It's nice to see the innovation train continuing in the Anycubic thread.

Interacted with Gregg at a distance in a professional capacity.  He was marketing/pricing director for the Appalachicola Northern (AN) out of Port. St. Joe.  Combustion Engineering(CE) moved refractory in and out of there.  I was a night pre-auditor for the traffic department and became familiar with correspondence between AN and CE.
