Hey guys and gals,

Owing to the Celica lineage and for the MkII 40th anniversary, I'm planning to make a limited quantity of Celica Dragon badges.

The pic is an epoxy prototype, the actual piece will be cold-cast and can be buffed.

You would have had 50 interested people 15 years ago..
That would make an awesome key ring too!
Always a good idea to state a ball park price.

Damm fb!

Yeah, we've seen forum activity drop considerably. I could make a key ring, but it'll most likely be an emblem.

I haven't actually made one yet, just received supplies as I write. I'll have updates soon.

I've also contacted the admin to pay the advertising fee in order to run a sale on the site.

I'm thinking a limited run of 40 dragons at $25 apiece would make nice keepsake.

Resin 3d printer? Which one?
Moulded metal impregnated resin.

Looking so great! I'm already thinking of places where to put it! What's the exact size?

If you add an eye as an option so that it could be used as key ring, would also be cool.

4cm x 6 cm. I've tried it on the grill, the dash, the hatch....all look good, hard to decide ;)

I added some chameleon powder (red/orange/gold). I think it's an improvement.

Let me know what you think :unsure:
The chameleon powder is made from mica, it glitters but doesn't buff very well :confused:

After reworking, I decided that the cold cast brass emblem works best, esp when polished.

I also played around with a couple other badges...
