M5 Stuart & Type 97 'TOON' tanks (Meng & Fujimi ???Scale)
Posted by Gamera on Wednesday, October 14, 2020 12:44 PM

Finished these a year and a half ago but didn't post them here since the tools for the engine deck of the Staurt vanished. I figured they'd show up eventually but I STILL haven't seen them. So I'll just go ahead and post these. 

Figures are from a company called Hero Forge. You can design your own figure with a paper doll type list of different options. They're meant as 32mm gaming figures but get them to send you the file and you can enlarge them on your own 3D printer. I used the one at our local library.

Other than the missing tools both kits went together quickly without any issues. The Type 97 came with some horrible stickers for the camo which went in the spare parts drawer...

Those are great Gamera - and way to double down on the Toonyness by adding the figures.  What a riot!

Thanks,

John

That was a great GB!

Good to see these two facing off again.

That is a great diorama. It has fun written all over it.  3D printing is starting to  come into its own.  There are nine local guys in our miniature painting group that have them.  Two are resin printers, which produce some nice stuff.

Reminds me of one of the showdowns from the old western films. Never knew local libraries have 3D printers, gonna have to check if mine has one.

Thanks guys! 

John: Check around, a lot of libraries now seem to have them. This one is pretty low quality in printing but it's good enough for a 'toon' build. 

Knox: I'd really like to see what a resin printer can do. I've been really impressed by what Builder 2010 is doing on his Edward Hopper house.
