some railroad scenery parts I created... It's hard to get sharp pictures of parts printed in this material.

hydrant H0 scale :
index.php?t=getfile&id=9050&private=0


1/87 scale dumpster. We can see there is some support material remaining, but the details are awesome.
index.php?t=getfile&id=9048&private=0
index.php?t=getfile&id=9049&private=0


The parts were very carefully packaged, I'm really pleased with the result. My only gripe is that bigger models (=more than 10cm long) quickly become very expensive in this material...

Great models FX. FUD is looking really good for such small scale, I hope my phone boxes come out as well.

You will need to print some better figures to match your parts!

Thank you for the kind comments ! Smile

@stop4stuff: I'm sure your phone boxes should look great ! In fact, for the first time, it seems to me that almost anything that looks good on screen prints out well in this material.

KBscale@ I would like to create my own figs, unfortunately it seems to me that I don't have the required skills... Man-made machines are (much) easier to draw than -non cartoon looking- humans...

My H0-scale tiny trailer model:

Painting isn't very easy on this material Sad , but the result is pretty neat IMHO. The rule behind is in centimeter.

Those tiny wheels must have been fiddly to paint! Surprised

To all: Thank you for the kind comments !

@owlposse: In fact, painting the wheels wasn't very difficult. I put the wheel on a wooden toothpick (just a few tenth millimeter on the spike), this allow a much easier handling. Painting the tire is easier using this method...
