Still not a huge fan of printed models, but the printing quality and detail resolution of BPM (and others) does seem to be getting better and better. Won't be much longer before scratchbuilding skill sets like mine become totally obsolete.

@David,

I've seen some nicely proportioned and quite detailed 3D prints, some that really tempted me, but have only seen a very few (and they are quite expensive) that don't have surface issues such as filament striations or some dimpling... so I think for the near term you are safe and your master modelling and proven casting skills will be in demand.

My two cents worth.

Likewise. I'll continue scratchbuilding for the same reason that I first started, because I'm still too broke to be able to purchase my toys like everyone else (or to afford even a cheap 3D printer). :lol:
