I'm really happy to announce that our new 1/72 scale resin products are now available through the O3DMiniatures online store. It took some time to get them out but I do think it was worth the wait. Don't take my word for it, check them out yourself.
The recent release of S-model's 1/72 scale jeep (and my subsequent purchase of it) has led me to resurrect my Braille Scale Jeep blog. The aim is to have a comprehensive review of all 1/72 scale jeep plastic kits available. It will be a long process and I'll be continually updating the posts with pictures and comments. Check it out here.
I want to thank those of you who have bought products from our shapeways store. 3D printing is a brave new world, and for those of you who has plunged in to try it out, I hope that you are satisfied with our products.
Currently, our products are only available in Frosted Ultra Detail material in shapeways as this is the only option that can achieve the level of detail required. As far as 3d printing materials go, FUD is currently one of the best in terms of fine detail and precision.
However as with any modelling material, there are pros and cons. The better you know your medium, the more enjoyable your modelling endeavour will be.
Here's a preview of some up coming Orange 3D releases. In our usual 1/72 scale, but this time in resin! Hope this gets you excited. Those are shots of the masters, and they still need to be cleaned up before going through the casting process.
Here's a hodge podge WW1 tank. I bought this Airfix kit on a whim with
the intention of building one of these classic tanks carrying a fascine.
Airfix's WW1 tank that is somewhat of a mix of mk I and mk II details, unfortunately,
I've got exciting news for BSBCE's (braille scale bren carrier enthusiasts). We've just opened our new store on shapeways. After several months of development, we are pleased to announce that our 1/72 scale 1 piece bren carrier tracks are now available through our shapeways store.
The item is so fresh off the oven that we haven't had a chance to take photos of the tracks in use. The tracks are meant for IBG's fantastic series of 1/72 Universal / Bren carriers.
Shapeways is an amazing 3D printing portal that offers highly detailed 3D printed models from precision CAD files.
Stay tuned here for more news and photos for our Bren Carrier Tracks.
