the Nashorn by BPM

Post by CarlL »

One of the other recent models by BPM is this Nashorn below. Hard to tell its quality from this one photo.

Its taken from another add on TWW at https://www.thewargameswebsite.com/new- ... f-nashorn/
where it notes prices as:
"6mm is £0.70
12mm is £3.50
15mm is £5.00
20mm is £10.00
28mm is £20.00"

Maybe more photos at https://www.butlersprintedmodels.co.uk/

looks a lot better than my 50 year old conversion based on a vacuum moulding an an Airfix Panzer IV
What's the point of doing one period, when you can do them all.......... In life most people specialise so gradually they know more and more about less and less so eventually they know everything about nothing. I work on a broad front so eventually I'll know nothing about everything.

How does the quality/sturdiness of these 3-D prints compare to a plastic injection moulded kit??

Grant,
I only have a few, and they remind me of early resin kits, where slender parts, likes of guns, seem fragile (at least in my hands and butter fingers) especially when having to cut out guns or fine parts from the rafts (or is it called scaffolding, which is like a sprue system that's enveloping) that support them. But model makers, like yourself, with more confidence around cutting or shaping hard plastic and resins, may find them easy work. (But lacking satisfaction of model making as really intended for wargamer wanting instant tanks, artillery etc..

Carl,

Do you have a dedicated sprue cutter, or are you just using a sharp knife??

Grant,
It took me forty years to progress t a sharp knife! (A scalpel)

What the blazes is a "dedicated sprue cutter"? .... a Durham model maker on care allowance plus overtime charges? ;)

One of these Carl...gives a good clean cut that requires minimal tidying up

That's clear, Grant.
I have a wire cutter that's similar.
How much do these retail for?
All best

Carl, you can get them from a fiver to about fifteen quid, depending upon which manufacturer you buy.

Google 'Side cutters' ...see what comes up
