LUCHS in 1/144 3D print of my own CADDS Model

Post by UshCha » Sun Sep 16, 2018 9:32 am

Here is my latest sculp and paint from the 3D printer.

It took me about 30 hrs as I am still a learner. Constructive critism on the sculp are welcome. Comments about 3D print quality are pointless. Has anybody got a good photo of the top as I was struggeling for a really good shot of the top of the real thing. Note the biggest panel on the top was my best attempt at a panel line at this scale, what do you think?

A feature not shown is that the turret is keway locked. The turret turns but will only come off at one angle. This is a feature only possible practicaly on 3D prints and is a major advantage ofver cast versions. Ihave checked for reliability and all 6 hulls and turrets are interchangable so its a robust design. It will feature on all my new vehicles.

If I was using this scale ,I would definitely consider buying them. Doesn't appear easy to master ,persevere your getting there. I have no idea as to the economics involved. Anyway thanks for posting cheers John

Not a vehicle I know, but the 1/144 model is impressive work.
