my buddy has some free time tomorrow we are going to make some parts for the 1:72 dumas carol moran, like a removable and locking flagstaff and jackstaff. I might tackle a spotlight that you can put an led in along with some other bits.

Jackstaff for the Carol Moran. I still need to correct some of the dimensions but its close. I will work on it more this weekend if I can.

Good progress, and a good idea to start with a simple part to learn the process... lots of steps involved in getting to a printed part!

A few cautions:
> Mind the minimum feasible dimensions for whatever process you want to use. When you get below 1mm (0.040"), you're on thin ice.
> And not just for printability, but for practicality. I made 1:72 stanchions for my Firefighter, and they were so fragile at 0.030" that they were darn near unusable.
> Sometimes, you need to ask: "Would another method be better for this part?" For strength, I would make that jack staff from brass rod and tube, turning the ball-end on a lathe (or shaping it with a file, rod chucked in a drill press or similar).

Have to do lost wax with brass or silver or gold. The stainless is a different process, which won't do fine detail at all...

And beware the minimum price for each...
