Thx Stingray
It is done. Should be much easier to assemble with the tiny parts now already attached to the main body. Also printing times for the big parts are way below 1 day at high quality settings.

Nice picture.

Non of my parents took pictures of my cars, except one winter when there was so much snow it covered most of my Capri.
They may have taken more photos, but my mom lost her mind in later years and throwed away a lot of pictures.
But I do own picture of all my cars except two of them, the first and then number 8.

I wouldn't even bother sharing photos of any cars I've owned. A very practical list of cars let's leave it at that.

Had PC trouble over last weeks, PC would randomly freeze while not under load, finally i found the faulty part, the plug for power supply of cpu. unfortunally the pin on the motherboard was also ruined so i had to buy a new mainboard.
I used the time to glue the body parts together and added a lot of filler (stefans part have shifts in z axis and also some distortions like the part was squeezed onto the bed during print. These are still V1 parts and now that i had my own hands on it my conclusion is:
Walls are definitely too thin. I also dont like to have to glue the parts together only having the thin wall as glue area. Will definitely change that in future, so 1 part slides into the other part for a stronger bond and bigger glue area. Dashboard needs to be seperated from cockpit, support material messed it up. I wont go for a V3 version, but the BMW will be made with all that in mind now.
