|First design for 1:43 scale chimney [message #59512] Wed, 02 January 2013 20:12 UTC
I have drawn one of four chimneys needed for a 1:43 scale model of a station, using Sketchup 8. |
I changed the Sketchup 8 default 24 facets to 60 facets for a circle, to make the drawing as smooth as possible.
If the design is OK I will put all 4 chimenys on a common sprue.
The chimney and its cowl need to be as smooth as possible, so I propose to use Fine Detail Plastic.
Is fine Detail plastic the best material?
Can I paint this material?
Any other comments on whether this model should 3D print OK?
Many thanks for your help
