Today most of my order arrived:
- Poor guy frozen in alumide *caughHanSolocaugh*
- Micro Cars (Material detail test, mostly work! 60-80 cents each)
- AE Car Logo (unfortunaly only the flat version was printable)
- Shoe decor replacement

Here some closeups and a video of the small cars in action

Thanks for all the help I was getting from the staff and on this forum, fixing the model from Thingiverse.
Unfortunaly a finger broke off even though I upscaled it, and the frame broke too (wonder why?)...

This order teaches me a lesson to stick with WSF, as the 1x1mm car frame caused major problems (hooks broke off on all of them, the white detail only came with three-and-a-half-wheels...)

The car logo does not look as good in alumide as I have hoped, but I guess can be painted with a more metalic finish. Too bad the round version was not printable.
Even though I only had a 75 cent plastic calliper, it fits fine.
I guess I will print another rounded one to replace the stolen one of my gf's car...
