Type 61 Tank 1:100
Gliver Consider this idea: your kit is composed of 4 main parts, the turret, the two track-covers on the sides and the main chassis. You leave as-is the first 3 parts, and reduce the chassis to only the top and rear plates, that is you cut away both sides complete with tracks, bottom and front. The resulting reduced chassis parts can be grafted on the body of a plastic modern tank kit in 1/72 scale, let's say for example Revell's Abrams, which roughly should be the same size. You should print a lot less that way, and even adding Revell kit's cost, overall price should be reduced and end result enhanced ... Just ideas, obviously :)
Gliver @ScornMandark Woah! You work fast! Dimensions now seems ok, but price has really skyrocketed too high for my wallet as of now :( But is price proportional to dimensions or to the quantity of plastic effused? Anyway your collection of 3D Gundam vehicles such as TinCod and Type 61 is really astounding, compliments!
Gliver A bit perplexed about dimensions: I own an 1/100 type 74 hovertruck whose length is about 9cm, and type 61 tank should be roughly the same size: on you can even visually verify the comparison between hardgraph kits ... your 5cm lenght is way too small for what I can say

Gliver Please think of upscaling it to 1/100 MG scale: would be the perfect partner for 8TH MST dioramas ;-)
