About this Product
Set of four 1:300th scale Tatra 815 VT artillery tractors; 2 with open deck and 2 with tarpaulins raised. The T-815 VT was introduced in the mid-1980s to succeed the T-813 Kolos; the VT version has an extended cab compared to the T-815 VVN. The photos showing printed but un-based models come courtesy of Fred Oliver, and show examples printed out in the cheapest default WSF plastic. The other photos also show examples done in the cheapest WSF plastic; note the grainyness of the material; the based-up versions were painted by me. WSF is good enough for the piping at the back of the cabs, but if you order these models in WSF, you might get a rejection from Shapeways saying the step/mudguard over the front wheel of each model is too thin - you can see it is slightly misprinted in some of these models, for example. "Fixing" this is not a trivial task, however... With WSF, you can also see some "stepping" on the tops of tarpaulins due to the way WSF is printed: layer by layer. "You pays your money and you takes your choice", as they say...
