Just thought you all might be interested in seeing this. I made a model of the Torn Fu D2's battery box door on the computer using the CAD program "Solid Works". I then had it printed out in a rapid prototype machine, it is made of plastic.

Thank you, my fiend has already asked if I could print one out for him, but the printer is not mine. It belongs to the school I am attending, as I am studying engineering and computer aided design. I do have the file though if you ever find someone who can print one out for you.

Sounds very promising :)

As I said - I'd be vey interested in 2 doors and a set of the knobs. Of course I 'll cover cost for your work and shipping, if you make a reasonable price we get together.

Thanks for a PM if your ok...
Cheers Fritze

I asking if there is anyone with real parts for a Torn Fu D2 radio, like knobs, switchs, small covers anything really that I could borrow to reverse engenner to make copy for people and myself from.

Im based in the UK, all parts will be only ether be laser scanned or meausered with a gauge so no damage at all will to your parts.

At what position does the latch lock the door, most copys are a solid latch pointing at about 10 oclock. I want to have the latch moving and able to lock and unlock the door.

If anyone has a picture of what the inside of the door looks like please.
