The awesome new Tamiya M-07 Concept car has one flaw. There is a hole on the bottom of the chassis, said to allow access to the pinion screw, that has the potential to allow dirt and pebbles into the transmission. This would wreak havoc on the gears. Tamiya provides aluminum glass tape to cover the hole. Unfortunately, the tape peels off after the first run or two as the chassis bottoms out on the ground. I created this plug to close the hole and keep debris out of the transmission. Unlike the tape, this plug is reusable. I suggest you purchase at least two plugs so that you have at least one spare in the event that it gets lost or misplaced. You can even share with your friends that run the M-07. https://www.shapeways.com/product/SEVSZVNE6/tamiya-m-07-concept-chassis-plug?optionId=63334527

Sorry) Link: The VagabondStar Project - Shapeways Shop Happy Shopping! For those who don't know... How does ordering from Shapeways work? Basically, when you want to buy an item via Shapeways you select your colour and material options (if those options are available) and add the item to your cart. You select your shipping method based on how fast you want your order then, once you've made your payment, Shapeways adds your order to the print queue. Once printed, the item will be sent to finishing where plastics will be dyed, metals will be polished, etc., then your items will be packaged carefully along with bubble packing then shipped via UPS to you. Shapeways has based in the Netherlands and in the USA so shipping to either Europe or US shouldn't be an issue. Shipping cost seems to be a flat rate so you can add as much to your order as you like without worrying about weight restrictions. Forgotten to buy something but you've paid already? No problem! As your order will take time to print off you can add more items to it without paying for extra shipping. Just make sure you tick the right box under their shipping options to ship with your previous order before that order is completed & sent to packing.
I've finally setup a shop and added a couple of my custom Wild Willy M38 Hop-ups to Shapeways for anyone interested. I received several inquiries to make them available after my Resto-mod build, so here they are. https://www.shapeways.com/shops/s2g2 I have several more hop-up parts I am refining, but for the first batch, here are the 2-piece 1.9" wheels I designed, and a custom (grilled) front end to replace the stock unit on the M38. The cons: The wheels are pricey for a whole set. The pros: Once you have a set, you have multiple options for modern 1.9" rubber on your M38. You can even run stock M38 sand paddles on them. I've tested them extensively for GMade MT1902 tires. I also have some beefed-up suspension parts I am testing now too, so look for more in the future. Anyway, I hope these parts give people some options for tires, and help keep more classic Wild Willy M38s in use! New front-end with a new look for the M38. I completely destroyed an old brittle stock unit, and this one has been holding up nicely on my runner ever since. Front and Rear Willy M38 wheels designed for 1.9" rubber. Wheels are two-part - each with a front and rear face. The front traps the bearing inside the wheel just like the original unit. For more details on the wheels, please see my build thread here: http://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=77335
