    Took some time and created three long overdue heads for CW Wheeljack mold:

    Nice! I especially like that most of your heads come in two pieces so the eyes are easier to paint.

    Regarding that, I have a technical Shapeways question for you. How much smaller are the eyes than the sockets on the models? I was thinking of doing this with my models in the future. The little Frosted Ultra Detail material description on Shapeways(https://www.shapeways.com/materials/frosted-detail-plastic) says .05 mm for parts fit but that is significantly less than the accuracy (± 0.1 - 0.2 mm ). :confused:

    I make the eyes 0.05mm smaller than the pass-through on all sides. Not only eyes but all tabs connectors etc. It has been working well for FUD/FED, but not so well for WSF of course.
