Hi People

I’m new here ^^’, I’ve looked up on many thread of this forum and I see a lot of amazing work 😊
Huuuuuh…. Don’t know what to say to introduce myself ^^’
I’m very interested by WWII and I do also some « custom » design too, but it’s mainly by 3d printing. Easy way huh?
I have made a lot of model since last year (around 70 models since October 2016), but only few of my product have passed the manual check before printing step, these ones have the mention : “–PASSED- “.
I’ve focused on German and US equipment because I started it in mind to upgrade my collection with a better-looking stuff than the vanilla one. My models are mostly firearms, but I’m working on some accessories (headgear, radio, Scenery stuff, etc…) and I’m thinking about to do also artillery, vehicle (Tank, motorcycle, LAV, …) and may be action figures (if I managed to handle human body creation)
I’m thinking about to do also, Russian, Italian, English, French and Japanese gear.
I’ve a shop on the Website which do 3d printing for me.
Feel free to give a look on it 😉

Here is some render of my product :)









This is the reworked version of the lafette tripod that I made at my very beginning.














If you are interested in my work, you can place a commission, I’ll be glad to do it.

P.S: Yes, somehow, it’s advertising ^^’ :greedy:

I have looked at your shop on Shapeways and see that you offer several different 1903 Sniper rifles. I'm looking fir 1903 Rifles without the scopes. If that is a possibility, what may the cost be of one of them and 4 of them?
Thanks in advance

Hi,

For the m1903A1/A1 alone it's 5$, the pack of 4 is 10$ (based price + mark up)

I would suggests printing them off in Black acrylate or contract it through a place like lightbeam3d. Then just mold and cast it yourself. I know it seems like a lot of work, but those prints are like dried pasta and they never take paint well.

In black acrylate, the price is higher and the minimal wall required is thicker so there is some detail that I couldn't do.
Shapeways provide some advices about painting Frosted Ultra Detail


For molding and casting, i'm still living with my familly ^^' so i don't have a place to do it safely, I have some idea of mold but it for some miscellaneous, like ammobelt, that would be in latex.

I absolutely don't know anything about molding like you guys are doing ^^' :confused: so while I don't have my own house, i don't want to take risk (if risk, there ^^') :slap::explode:

Still, thanks for your advices
