Cheers VB. Good stuff! I look forward to seeing what you do with them!

I see they’ve added another two packets to the BW3 KS. Some slingers and outlaw buglers, should go perfectly with my Sheriff of Larddingham project

And this 3d printing lark isn't as easy as it could be, printing the track units for the Ram Kangaroo, the right hand track printed perfectly. Left one is being utterly stubborn, and yet the settings are identical. I even mirrored the right unit, still failed. :(

I think I might be starting to get the hang of this 3d printing lark. It's a bit of a palaver, but I'm starting to get resuts I'm reasonably happy with. I still need to clean up the bottom of the tracks, and I will print the gun barrel separately.

For your first steps that’s looking good Doug. Interesting how 3D printing makes the delicate work of railings look great but leaves a slight surface pattern on basic flat surfaces. Not that the steel on the originals was smooth and flawless, the 3D imprint on tanks may be more realistic than the ‘perfect’ plastic injection production.

Been resisting 3D for a while now, but the WOW models Alcal was showing on LAF might just weaken my resolve.

I think it depends. My mates in SA buy tanks from suppliers here and I send them off. Those are lovely and smooth.
