I'm not sure what the problem is. Their minimum size difference is 0.3 mm. The minimum on the part is something like 0.52, so there should be plenty of wiggle room. I'll keep trying. Now that the basic prototype artwork is done, its really just a matter of finding someone who can print it for a reasonable price. 

Any suggestions? Seriously, does anyone have any ideas?

If anyone would care to do a rough size/scale check using the ruler in the photos, that would be great.

The spaces between the slats aren't completely burned through, but it still looks better than the Revell deck. The issue with the prior deck piece rejected by Shapeways wasn't the artwork, but rather that the way the art was put together made it unprintable using their machines. The deck is defintely do-able in 1/72 scale, its just going to be a learning process of what they can print. The trick is to alter the deck art in such a way as to make it printable and realistic. This is going to take some more time, but at least its do-able. Probably. Hopefully.

Here's the antenna lead in. Its in clear and little bit tough to see - its the little circular thingie in the bag - but if you zoom in you can just make out the hex bolts ringing the center. I'll try to paint it to make the details pop more.
