SR-24 , the size would roughly be between 9 inches in length , to about 17 inches. Depending on how much you would want to put in it. Im guessing based on other scale model ships iv'e seen I would start at 150.00 The bigger and more elaborate in detail I guess it would be a little more. It's all a thought, but my dad can help me out since he designes r/c airplanes from a computer and cuts them out with a router.

Zcorp printing is based on quantity of material and time to produce. If your talking about something 9" in legnth, if your trying to see the motor in the boat, detail would be minimal. Briefly, we need file exported from a CAD generated 3-D solid drawing, such as a DXF or STL file. For example, AutoCAD can export to a DXF, Architectural Desktop exports to DXf and STL, 3-D Studio VIZ/MAX export to DXF and STL. Obviously, a 2-D CAD drawing cannot export 3-D solid model information. Enough tech talk, if you have a file, send it to me and I'll have run through the program for a quote. Think $500 ish kind of $ (no-not cheap but fast)

I did a search and saw where you guys were talking about die cast models of trailors and HP boats. The website that also came up in the thread was (bonzi) seemed to be mainly rc models, these wouldnt be rc... not yet atleast. I know there are enough people out there including me that would like to have real offshoreboats with nice detail along with there own trailors or rigs , not to mention there own personal HP boat.

CMG thanks for the information, im going to purchase my own milling machine b/c I would like to do more than boats when the time comes. I could use it for other reasons as well including for my daytime job.

LOL, that was some funny stuff... what did you ever do with it anyway??

I have a card somewhere. There is a guy making models of various performance boats already. He has done the 33ZX and a Classic as I recall, and maybe a Scarab. I will see him again at Mount Dora in March, will get his website if i do not find his card in the meantime...
