These little gems are the 1978 original tin can fighters. These are tough and highly maneuverable. Which makes these tough to beat. Specially because so many come at you at once. They don't do one on one fighting, these come at you like a swarm, flying in groups of 3, times 3. Which is how these set got the number is did. These are 1/1000 scale. We still can't get a working viper to go with these. But we'll keep trying. This model set has been a fight for so long. It now no longer gets rejected. This set prints only in the selected materials. Any change in that could cause a rejection. Markup has been dropped on this model.

Each Tin Can fighter is 16.56mm width x 12.85mm long x 3.73mm tall. The price you see is for all 9 Tin Cans. This set was a major challenge to get to print and took several months before ShapeWays cleared it ONLY for the materials listed. These would get rejected in any other material. The wing guns play with the geometries that the Service Team @Shapeways checks models by. This can not be changed, and I wouldn't want too anyways. However I am still working to get a printable Viper set to go with these and the shuttles. 2014 will see some new BSG ships, fighters and unique craft. Stay tuned.
