P 356 Photo Etched set available now

I would like to announce the start of a new line of detail products.

g
detailfactory
will produce transkits and detail accessories.


The first release is a photoetched detail set for the Fujimi Enthusiast Porsche 356 series of kits. This set has many parts for the 356 Speedster, but it also has detail parts specific to each version of the 356: engine cover grilles for each, two versions of air cleaners, four different steering wheels, logo badges for each version, and much more.


The set is made with a new digital etching technology that increases the detail and accuracy of etched parts. In close up pics, you can see how clean and sharp the etchings are, especially for small parts like bolts and badges. The Speedster badge is particularly difficult to do by standard etching techniques.


If you are interested in ordering, please contact me by PM or email. I also hope to have this product available through online retailers soon.
Price is 18 USD plus shipping (that I expect cheap elsewhere)
More projects are underway!



PS if someone is wondering how I got a so smooth english I'll say..... thanks a lot to my buddy Andy for the (hard) editing job

Very impressive how you turned your hobby into something this outreaching...You took it to the plate, mate. Impressive - once again! You made going business with this set look like you did it during a night - you announced it and now we have to our pleasure.

Good luck with this and Im very excited on you next projects...

P.S. since you're doing your own kits, do you have an idea of someone who can print (screenprint) decals for me. I have a few ideas but no address where I can have them printed. somewhere around 100 pieces.

Re: Porsche 356 Photo Etched set avaiable now

Thanks guys, I aprreciated a lot

@Daniel: there are plenty of places where you'll do a job like you say: only they want 250/300 set as a minimal order.
Never find one that will print only one hundred sets: just to set up overlay I guess they some dozens...

Anyway with the scuderia we print at the awesome Cartograf, I guess you'll easily find contact by the website

Wow, these look awesome Gio, beautiful work. Can't wait to see what else you come up with. Have you looked at the rubber-backing technology - would be really nice to not have to clean up the parts after removal.
