Hi all

I have started my firefly build, I have my my hybrid shell and barrel turret.

I would like to find some links to help me disassemble the current HL Sherman.

Also I would like to find somebody who could help with some very small 3D printing I have a very low budget at the moment but are very small pieces. Uk based

Any help would be greatly appreciated

You should add your location to your info. If you're in the states I might be able to help out with the 3D printed stuff. I just ordered fresh filament today. @)

What small parts are you actually after? Always a good idea to state so that potential helpful 3D guys passing by will know if they can help or not.
The biggest problem with whether you can get things printed or not is the available files for any parts.

Have you seen this site?

If you're any good with a file, you could make your own mg cover.

On my thread: It Begins M4A1 Firefly I tell in detail how it was made. I kept the cardstock pattern if you need dimensions.
