Thanks all for the concern. I'm doing well, I just haven't had the time to do anything. I've decided that I'm going to cut back on the products that I print myself. It's a lot of work, which was mostly expected, but it isn't very enjoyable for me. I'll be keeping the products that can't be printed through Shapeways available on the website. For now, the listings will stay up but I'll remove the purchase links on products that are available on Shapeways and I'll have a link to the Shapeways product instead. This isn't a decision I take lightly, I've been mulling about it for about a month.

What I will also do is offer replacement parts. If anything from purchased product from Shapeways is damaged or lost, you can contact me through Shapeways or my website and I'll print a copy of that missing part for you.

I'll also still do one-offs. Like say, for example, you wanted a 1/6 M110 SASS, I will still do that.

I'll complete the couple of orders I've received up until now but I won't be taking more orders for items that are also available on Shapeways.

I'm going to try to work on more projects at this time. I'm working full time so I won't have a huge amount of time to work on projects but I'll be able to work on them. I'll go back through the thread and see what's been suggested and try to work on that first.

From the looks of it, I might be able to do it, I just need the dimensions. If it's longer than it is wide, it would take a bit of working but still probably doable for me.
