Development of the VOLVO 164 E from 1972

Volvo 164E 1 18 scale model replica by DNA Collectibles.

Here is another look into the development process of the Volvo 164 E at 1 18 scale. One of the major difficulty we are facing when choosing the model and starting its development is definitely to make sure we reproduce the original car. This is certainly even more difficult when the subject is a classic car. Even if we can find good documentation, it happens frequently that some parts are no longer original but retrofitted modern pieces.

Thankfully we can count on our community to help us during this long process of 3D rendering and afterwards during the prototype creation. On the video below you can have a look at some of the images from our 3D engineering software.
The 3D rendering are very important in the development, as it allows us to check every single part of the model car.
While the grey prototype, which is called a Master, is made to make sure the tooling is well manufactured and that the shapes, angles, proportions are correct, the 3D images will show us the fitting of the windows, the shapes and sizes of all the photo-etched parts, which will be added only on the painted sample. The painted prototype will be ready only three months after the approval of the 3D, so we need to make sure we do no mistakes.

We are looking forward to being able to show the final version of this beautiful model car, as it will enlighten your collection with all its chrome and shiny elements.
