So I have now had a good chance to have a go at this 3d printing lark, and I have actually got to the stage where they mostly work rather than fail. I haven't yet had a go at printing figures but the level of detail I can get with the printer suggests it shouldn't be a problem, so that might be the next step.
So far I have been able to do a bunch of prints for a friend who expressed an interest in 15mm Early War French, and managed to throw in a set of German armour as well. Then some vessels for someone doing 1/300 WW2 Naval. At the moment the printer is humming away quietly as it tackles a 1/300 Hunt Class British Destroyer.
Mostly I have been doing 28mm WW2 stuff for myself. Some it to fill in gaps, others just to try out new vehicles. Some of the print files are upscaled 15mm and it shows, while others have been fettled for 28mm detail, and work much better. Anyway - here they are:
Update, added in the 88mm. 1st Corps crew, 3d printed 88.
|Upscaled, these are not the best quality, but quite usable
|YOu can see the layers quite clearly.
|For Malaya, another Universal Carrier, an Indian Pattern Carrier and a Marmon Herrington A/C
|The rear of the Marmon shows print layers. Angling the vehicle while printing would help
|A selection for North Westen Europe
|Pretty sure that's a non standard WaspIIc but it will do in the meantime.
|Sdkfz 221 needed for the new Pint Sized Campaign
|The 15mm prints I did for a mate.
So what's next... hopefully, with lockdown easing I might even get to play a game!
