  • Hawk emblem meets the 21st century

    Now that I have an actual Studebaker blueprint, this shows what can be done. I took as many of the measurements as I could make sense of and created a 3 dimensional file (it looks like a real solid). This is a 2d rendering of the part in Solidworks. A few details are not in the drawing - like a few fillets, but I have a real part to guide me. It's a bit of work, but it's gratifying to see what the designer actually intended. Some feature are less clear in the production parts and all but obliterated in the reproduction parts. This file is not perfect, but this is a first try at it. Over time I'll refine the model to make it even more accurate.

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

        That is very nice work, Scott.

            Now what would be awesome is to feed that into one of those stereolithography prototyping things and then you'd have a perfectly crisp part to pull a mold from for some better repros

            Nice work, anyway... wish I still had toys like that to play with, some days.

                Thanks!

                Actually, the print probably has enough information I could get a price on reproducing it in the correct material and plating. In practice I would probably need to create the most accurate part file from the drawing first, since the milling machines are cad driven these days. I don't know if anyone makes dies (this is a sheet metal part) off of drawings anymore.

                I wish I had a blueprint for the GT hawk front spears, too.

                    Nice, Scott!

                    I don't want to dis our great vendors, but the Hawk repoped emblems that are being sold are junk. The casting is rough, the finish is rougher and uneven. The pins don't begin to fit the stock holes. I really don't see how our vendors can sell them without first warning the customers that they most likely won't be happy with them.

                    I bought some for my '63, but I will be returning them and refinishing my stock ones at a greater cost than the repoped ones.

                    Scott, if you can output the Soldworks to a CNC machine to make a mold that will duplicate the original in a QUALITY manner at a price that is even somewhat higher than the repops being sold now, you would be a hero and own the market. My guess is that other repoped emplems may share the poor quality of the Hawk emblems.
