Took a while, but It Arrived!
A one piece OO scale model 1930's Police Signal (Phone) box in awesome 3D printed Frosted Ultra Detail. The image above shows the model after one coat of Tamiya Fine Surface Primer.

Thanks!

I should have more piccies in a few days once I've finished painting it.

[edit] I forgot to mention, the model is only 37mm tall.

Looks like the rough surface error is still there though, can see some obvious roughness and banding on one side. :(:(Sad

I have another model, that I stuck to my personal 'golden design rule' that has curves in 3 dimensions... and no ridges anywhere... perhaps the FUD printer suffers from the same surface approximation as the printers for other materials... mmm... certainly something to think about.
