The price you see might not be the one you buy because a larger scale might be shown first.  You need to click into each product to see each scale price.  I cannot modify any products made before October 2018 due to a Shapeways price change.  Sort by newest and any products before the Halo vehicles are old pricing and sold only as singles.  Newer designs will have multiples at the smallest scales so no money is wasted.   It takes me 10-35 hours to do a good vehicle so you should consider yourself lucky I don't charge $$$ per model.   Please double check the proper material and scale end up in your cart (dimensions are listed at lower right side of the screen).   Many moving part designs might not work due to wax buildup (read more in the "about" section at the bottom of the page).

Terex AT40


1. My miniatures are designed in 1/400 scale so can only be printed in "smooth/est detail" plastic. 
2. Scales 6mm and 1/288 are the same file/price; both are printed at 1/285 scale (all future models will be listed as 6mm).   
3. I had many models designed to have moving parts but they 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.  (going from 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.  1/72 often won't print in the cheap low detail "versatile" plastic, and since its a powder print it looks like sandtone and is impossible to paint smooth.  The Goldhofer AST-1 in 1/72 versatile plastic is $110.  The Vammas PSB costs $87 at 1/87 scale with the cheap versatile/ low detail plastic!   
I think "versatile" is a waste of money for all scale models so won't offer it in my listings. 

The software I use is Solidworks and is geared toward industrial design like the things you see in my store.  You can see my portfolio at facebook/ttakata73 (I don't use FB's messenger).  Any basic design needs to have a front, side, and top view.  If the bottom and back are different then those drawings must exist too.  I essentially need to know what an object looks like 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.  You should be realistic about pricing objects.  I wanted a small 1/400 building printed but when the price was $900 I lost interest.

My design rate (if I am available and interested) is $50/hour.  
Example 1: 1/400 TaxibotWB took 20 hours since no drawings or dimensions are publicly shared.  
Example 2: 1/400 GPUFT99 took 2 hours to design since its made of simple extrusions and drawing/dimensions do exist online.
Please email any drawings to ttakata73@gmail if you want a quote.
