15mm scale 3d printed AA guns

Recommended Posts

So I have a commission to print a bunch of 37mm Type 55 Chinese AA guns in 15mm scale. Most parts are in resin to get the requisite detail.

 

After 6 hours printing time we have all the gun barrels and most of the cruciform bases complete (unfortunately one failed), the gun mounts and remaining cruciform bases are currently on the printer.

 

I'll add photos of all the parts as they're completed (I won't be assembling them though as I don't trust the postal service!)

 

Questions welcome ;-)

And the parts bring printed on the Photon are now complete. A bit of curing time in the sun and they'll be right (when we get some sun!)

 

Next step is the print the last few bits (wheels and a flat disk that goes on the underside of the gun mount) on my FDM printer and we'll be finished

And finally, a whole BUNCH of wheels (40 in total) and the second part of the base plate

 

Due to reduced detail on these items (and the fact that the purchaser isn't sure about using the wheels) they've been printed on my Ender3 - FDM printer.

 

I'll ask him to send some completed pictures to me when the models are done and painted so I can add them in here.

 

WIP Complete :-)

      What is evil, yet cute? a KICKSTARTER that's what.

      Since SoC's delivery is in full throttle, it's time to announce the SIBLINGS OF CHAOS. Coming from the dark places of the galaxy, and serving Gods of terrible designs, they march for the total ruination of everything!     from the same team that brought us Siblings of Conflict, Impact!

      So these are the two terrain pieces I finished up last night. The core of both these models are from Terrain4Print's Ulvheim modular terrain system and printed in PLA at 0.2mm on my Prusa.
       
      This was a quick "gazebo" made exclusively of pieces I printed:
       
      This is a hybrid piece. The foundation and walls are still Ulvheim pieces, epoxied together, and Magic Sculpt used to blend the seams between the pieces on the outside. The roof was made by me using card board and card stock, while the strips for the upper floor are just plastic card.




       
      The reason I went with the handcrafted roof is because while the T2P roofs are nice, the number of pieces available limit the roof options. By hand building my roofs, I can get as complex as I want.
       
      I'm really enjoying this hybrid approach of 3d printing and hand crafting.
       
      My next building is a larger church.

      So I painted this one for a friend to use as his goliath fighter in our dnd campaign.
      It was a quick and easy paint, since he asked me to keep it simple. I like how it turned out considering the printing quallity
      Also, the blade of his original sword broke of, so I replaced it with a warhammer empire greatsword blade

      I've just finished this one, it's a pc friend is using in our dnd campaign. He bought the stl file from hero forge and then had it 3d printed. Originaly he wanted a darker palette, but during the painting I just hade to make some colors pop. In the end he really liked it :D
      There's also a WIP thread here

      So one of my players bought a hero forge 3d model and then printed it. I've based it, primed it and now I'm painting it in the color combination he requested. I have just finished the base layer (the goggles will be gold with green glass)
      Hope he's happy when it's finished :D
