3D printed tanks

here are a few new arrivals:

Dameya's M-22 Locust

These two pics will give you an idea of how detailed and accurate his models are; this one is only available from Dameya's Japanese site but there are many models you can order via Shapeways, all very finely detailed, with many tiny pieces, perhaps too many sometimes (each Katyusha rocket is a separate part!)

Here are two models from Arctic Skunk (a French FCM-36 and a US M-2 medium tank. These come in one or two parts (hull and turret); in FUD details they are almost as good as Dameya's (but there are no open hatches).

Arctic Skunk has recently added a Christie's Combat Car, an Hungarian SPAA Nimrod and several quite obscure Swedish types from 1940-1960s
Shapeways is quickly filling every gap in 1/144 AFVs.

Oh, and merry Christmas to all! :D

Whilst there's one guy on evilBay that occasionally offers an M36 Jackson, I think your best bet at the moment is Panzer Depot.

Forgot about that one! And it's a tad cheaper, too ... :oops:

I suggest you don't buy any of them: Arrowhead's jackson is quite oversized and PanzerDepot is a copy of the Arrowhead's...
Let's hope in Shapeways...
