i would suggest shopping around on shapeways as the same subject can often be found offered by different vendors and considerablye different price points, certianly factors such as effort to design the model plays a part in that as some are clearly more detailed/accurate than others and others have just been designed badly from a printing perspective and so do not optimise themselves for cost effective printing and other simply have a high mark-up levied on the base prices.cowleyi wrote: ↑Mon Jan 11, 2021 10:24oooo I am not particularly fussed with resin and wouldn't go near a vacform at all, but 3d printing is fascinating as there appear to be some very nice 3D printed vehicles available from shapeways at rather expensive prices. I would certainly give a couple a go out of curiosity.... I do like weathering tanks in 1/144 scale.....
Anyone want to suggest a vehicle? something from WW2?
The French ARL-44 is quite 'trendy' (it must have become available on World of Tanks in the last year?) it would be slightly 'whiff' as though commissioned in WII didn't enter service until 1949-1950, it would make a change to all the German heavy armour https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ARL_44
or, perhaps something more mainstream that we don't see too often such as the M24 Chaffee?
or, go wild and produce something from the Imperial Japanese Army perhaps Type 1 Ho-Ki?
