The price you see might not be the one you buy; you need to click into each product to see each scale price.  Please resell painted models since my paint skills are pretty bad at 1/400.  You can message me pics if your models look better and I will add them to the product pages with your username.   It takes me 10-35 hours to do a good vehicle so you should consider yourself lucky I don't charge $$$ per model.   For this reason I don't offer sets.  Please double check the proper material and scale end up in your cart (dimensions are listed at lower right side of the screen).   Bigger scales are exponentially pricier and can be read in the "about" section at the bottom of the page.
1. My miniatures are designed in 1/400 scale so can only be printed in "smooth/est detail" plastic. 
2. 6mm is the common wargaming term for 1/285 scale.   
3. Moving parts don't work easily because the wax support can't escape the joints.  After 2 to 20 hours in a Simple Green/50 watt ultrasonic bath some parts will move.  At these small scales the wax is stronger than the <1mm plastic pivots.  So consider all models static with only a tiny chance to have moving parts unless noted otherwise. 
4. You can request other scales, but bigger is exponentially more expensive.   1/400 to 1/100 is 4x larger in scale,  but 4x4x4=68x larger in material), and might not even fit a printer's max dimensions.  The
 "versatile" plastic looks like sandstone and is impossible to paint smooth on small models so I won't offer it in my listings unless specifically requested.  A 5x5x3 inch cube is $2300 in the smoothest plastic so anything over 1/160 scale would need deep pockets.

I am quite busy doing real work, this place is just a hobby=loss of money.  You can see some of my portfolio at facebook/ttakata73 (I don't use FB's messenger). 

Most of the recent cars and trucks have taken me 8 to 10 hours to design.   I charge $50 per hour to do design work so unless you are very enthusiastic or rich, please don't waste my time.
Example 1: TaxibotWB is a big vehicle that took 20 hours since no drawings or dimensions are publicly shared and is $26 in 1/200.
Example 2: LSR1931 Blubird4 is a  small car that took 8 hours to design and is $35 in 1/87
Example3: GPUFT99 is a box trailer that took 2 hours to design since its simple extrusions and orthographic drawing/dimensions do exist online.

Please email any orthographic drawings to ttakata73@gmail if you want a quote.  A
ny basic design needs to have a straight on front, side, and top views.  If the bottom and back are different then those drawings must exist too.  I essentially need to know what an object looks like flat from all sides so if you don't have this info I can't make it without a lot of guessing.  You can find great videos online about "orthographic drawing" to explain how to design on paper.  I don't do sculpted forms like modern cars, wings, animals, etc....because no info exists for body contours so they would be impossible to duplicate without a 3D scanner.
