Hi Guys, it took us couples of weeks to complete the final fine turning work. Today we are happy to announce the final production version is locked down. Here come more pictures.

To finish this maximum realism 1/18th Stryker ICV, we have spent more than one year and lot of money. We are using the most advanced industrial SLA 3D-printer we could get to produce the models. We will provide two versions of the product. One is unpaint version and anther is painted version. Product is assembled before shipping and user just needs to install few small parts like the antennas.

The unpaint version includes:
- ONE unpaint M1126 Stryker ICV
- ONE M153 CROW
- TWO standard antennas

The painted version includes:
- ONE painted and weathered M1126 Stryker ICV
- ONE M153 CROW
- TWO standard antennas
- TWO counter-RCIED electronic warfare antennas
- decals

I am happy to answer all questions. And we need 6 weeks turn over (because the Stryker size is large the printer need more time to print it out). If have any interest, just message me. All pre-orders will be processed on ebay.

Yeah, it does look very cool! Likewise, I couldn’t justify spending that much except to get my “holy grail,” the A-10.

That looks amazing and the price makes sense for what you need to do. I hope it's very popular for you so you can get the price lowered over time!

Do the wheels roll? Do you have any pictures showing it next to existing 1:18 vehicles so we can see a size comparison? Do you have the dimensions (HxWxL)?

Congrats on bringing it to market!

The wheels can roll and I can bring more informations couple of hours later because I am currently out of the town. Will be back soon.

I think the price may be ‘amazing’ as well... anyway our top-end industrial SLA 3D-printer can provide much more details and better quality than ever :)
Man, that thing is amazing and definitely on the checklist, but I can’t spend that kind of cash on a stationary ground vehicle.

Oh, I’m not doubting the price or the quality of the model, it’s just that I’m a 1/16 tank guy and can buy a solid metal full functioning RC tank for $600. I personally could not go into that territory for a stationary ground vehicle.

Yes I understand what you mean. Frankly speaking the factory mass-production can get the stationary ground vehicle product price lower but it's just my personal work-around to produce few interesting stuffs in my spare time and I have to pay the bill for all kinds of expenses (SLA 3D-printer, failed prototypes, materials, time) myself before I can bring the beautiful product to market. I will make more interesting things regarding 1/18 scale vehicles later.

That is gorgeous and the details are fantastic.

Are you going to make them on a per order basis? How long does it take you to print, assemble, and paint one? Can't imagine it's a quick job.
Actually it takes much longer time to produce one completed Stryker than we can image. SLA printing for the big-size product is very slow but it can offer smoother surface and better quality than FDM printing. It takes four weeks to print the vehicle and one more week for the small parts like wheel, antenna, hatch etc. The last week I can assemble and paint the vehicle. So totally I need 6 weeks to produce one.

Good lord that’s a long print time. I can’t imagine the pain of a print error or computer glitch during the process.

Yes, it's a realllll long print time. But there's less posibility of printer error unless the print scheme has problem. So we had to do a lots of tests before we can bring the final version to market today.

That is BIG sexy. Fantastic work! If I was in the market, I would definitely buy one. Alas, money is tight right now. What was the biggest challenge for you in making this? Are there things you would do differently if you had to do this again? Do you see yourself getting this to retail?

I think the biggest challenge is to carve the every detail as far as I can. And in fact it's really took me quite a long time to do that. Now the design for the basic version M1126 ICV is locked down.
