Quote from: bba952 on December 23, 2016, 04:11:56 AMdoes anyone know what type of plastic original scales are made of ??They are made from Cellidor, a tradename for cellulose ester based thermoplastics. An ABS would probably work well and is widely available for 3D printers. Lego bricks were originally made from a cellulose acetate and then switched to ABS. I mention that, since the have similar characteristics: smooth, shiny surface and slight deformation to attach to each other, similar to the way the scales attach to the liners.
Thanks for the info. ill need to find out what type of plastic is used in the kits i ordered. hopefully they will come out shiny and not dull. well here is the candidate for this experiment. i don't know if its just me but i never did like the scales with the textured surface. to me they look more burgundy than red.
