Title: The 79th Armoured Division in 3d
Post by: Wulf on 09 June 2019, 04:48:25 PM
Elements of the 79th Armoured Division 3d printed to 10mm scale. Some bits need work - the SBG bridgelayer especially - and the fascine sled needs reprinting as the towing arms broke cleaning up support.

They do look good, and a favourite subject of mine.

The DD Sherman does look a bit odd, the screens look very angular, not like fabric. But all the Churchill variants are cool, I particularly like the AVRE with the wading funnels / exhausts

Agreed, the DD is from a different source, and does look odd. I intend to cover it in putty & fingerprints...

The AVREs are superb, and there are a multitude of versions, wading gear, track guards, Mk.III or IV turrets, etc. And they DO have the hull gunner's sliding hatch & the hull side brackets & clamps.

Fantastic models.

For those of you who aren't aware of the Panjandrum, it as a British weapon designed to attack German guard dogs  ... see video below.

OK, so the Great Panjandrum won't get us to the beach, what else is there...

Waterline versions?  ;)

Quite difficuly to do waterline versions of the LVTs without cutting a hole in the table, as the holds' floors are below water level... Not sure about the Terrapin, the DUKW should be OK...

Those are cool

Pendraken do waterline LVTs

That's some lovely stuff- what sort of printer did you use?

Wow they look great for that level of printer!
I am learning 3d sculpting right now and would like to have a go at introducing Pendraken's first 3 d printed figures. These photos look nice, but would I be right in guessing printing 10mm infantry for mastering would be a tall order for this kind of machine?

With the standard 0,4mm extruder nozzle I'd say that was beyond it. It might possibly manage prone figures, but never standing. I have experimented with a/ 0.3mm nozzle, but eventually gave it up after numerous problems (I ran out of nozzles after too many blockages...)
