T-64A Mod.1969 Main Battle Tank
- 10x T-64A Mod.1969 Main Battle Tanks
This Soviet-era main battle tank was created as an update to the T-62 and eventually became the basis for modern Soviet tanks. With production commencing in 1963 and active service in 1967, over 13,000 units have been produced. The T-64A was able to remain a secret for many years, thanks in part to its limited presence in combat and similar appearance to the T-72. This is the early model accepted into service.
Some part cleanup will be necessary. The 3D printing process uses a waxy substance to support certain part features during the printing process. Although the parts are cleaned by Shapeways, some waxy residue may remain. It can be safely removed with water and a mild aqueous detergent like "Simple Green" using an old, soft toothbrush, Q-tips or pipe cleaners. During the printing process, liquid resin is cured by ultraviolet light. Microscopic bits of resin may remain uncured.
Let your parts sit in direct sunlight for a few hours to fully cure the resin.
Water-based acrylic paints meant for plastics is strongly recommended. Other paints, especially enamels, may not cure on Frosted Detail 3D-printed plastics.
Use dedicated model sprue cutters to remove parts to minimise the risk of damage to parts.
