This is a great piece that fills a distinct gap in the market. However, there are some distinct drawbacks that could be improved upon. 1) The detail in the 3-d model is fabulous, but most of it is lost once you scale it down to 1/48. This is primarily a problem with the panels; these details need to be made more pronounced in order to read well. 2) The model really needs to be printed in four parts with the body separate from each of the legs. There are two reasons for this: First, because the legs can be better protected if shipped as separate pieces (see below). Second, it appears that Shapeways has a hard time printing in the area at the back of the model. The surface texture in this area is extremely rough and pitted. Having the legs either separate or straight instead of canted should eradicate this issue. 3) The legs need to be thickened. All three broke in transit and broke down even further upon handling. This may not be perfectly to scale, but is necessary for this material (Frosted Ultra Detail). Other than these issues, this is a fabulous piece (the transparent quality of Frosted Ultra Detail is really handy for type 3 robots). If these issues were addressed, I'd buy a ton of them!
