Rallyman and CFR arrived, the cars in CFR being ridiculously big sparked this project for new F1 cars. I've started to make some vintage muscle cars as well and plan to make 'Historic' drivers for them once I figure out the proper methods for making these cars handle realistically.

Here's a few pics, I'm resin printing these at 50 microns which allows decent detail.

What do you think?

I have some Rally cars already, here's a shot. There's actually a few different models here but in this small of scale they're kinda hard to tell apart!

They are a little bigger for the map.
I think at this scale no needed so many details (see rallyman cars).
You should put in evidence (emphasizing) the front mask, spoiler, tires, taking a sort of "poetic license" in making the cars.

The Rally cars are a bit larger than the stockers in Rallyman, but the F-1 cars are perfect on the CFR board which is the primary focus.

Fairly close. I aimed for 20mm length to fit the CFR track so some aren't exactly proportioned. If you give me an overall length I can scale them up or down to suit though.

I also made the tracks with at least 20mmX12mm squares, to fit any car of formula dè or speed circuit, so cars must be no more that size

I have them on my website now but I think pimping it out on the forum is a breach of the rules. I'll send a link via PM.

Cheers!
