Some more progress, we milled a piece without radii just for programming ... :mrgreen:
But some more to do!

We need to make some details easy as it is very difficult to mill everything like the casting 1:1.
What do you thing? E.g. the nose will be a bit 'thicker'.

So, some more progress: We bought another milling tool for radius and started some test with milling 1mm radii.

The nose needs to change a little bit, it is flatten on both sites.

So, here we are. This is the prototype from what we will start with at least 10 pieces now.

What are you guys think about?

Here we are, the parts arrived today. We sand blasted the parts :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Milling was not that easy, we needed to make some parts double because of failures ;-) There are some minor marks on some of the parts - but I beleive this is best we can get out of this.

I will pack all paid examples today and tomorrow and it will be shipped on wednesday (tomorrow is a holiday here).
