But I didn't know if you guys used your own, British or US personnel carriers.
Did these too. Figure the cost per container pre painting is about 6 cents.
We also had the M113 in all it's varients including one you didn't have. The British Saladin armored car turret mounted on the M113 as infantry support vehicle, mainly in Vietnam.
Here they are. I used auto-support and didn't look at it too hard and I should of. There is a couple of supports that went through the tracks.
The Patton tank
The muzzle is a little disformed but other than that, it looks good.
Most of the time when I scale a STL file, I do it in sketchup, if I have a known dimension. That way I can draw a box and then scale the know dimension.
Do you know how wide or long the Holt should be??? As I said earlier, I printed both at 65.5%. Going by Wiki, the Patton is 12' wide and 30' 6" long, and the print came out just a slight hair too large. I measured it out a 12' 3" wide and 30'10" long. I'll be printing a few for flatcar loads. I'll need to look for some photos of the loaded to get a idea of how they braced to the gun tube.
The Holt's measures out at 5' 7" wide and 11' 4" long. How close to the prototype are they???? I think they need scaled up a bit more.
Great stuff anyone have a M88 or M88A1 file that they would be willing to share
This is the best one I've found, but at $150, it's kind of steep for me. I've looked at some others, but with all the work that was needed to make it printable, might as well just start from scratch and draw it up yourself. I haven't really look all that hard lately, either.
I did buy a 5.9 Cummins engine drawing from them a few years back for $20 and it was super nice.
Wish I could print some.
Rodney: The one I made measures 1.279 inches long X .561 wide. (Holt 75)
Found this as a free download. The person who designed it says its a double for straight runs. Says to increase the size a little if used on a curve to compensate for long cars/engines.
Don't know. Haven't tried. Going to see how they paint up before I make any decisions.
How about a SDP40F shell 3D printed???? I started a new thread on it
Would have been no broken hearts about it had you put it here.
They (your shell and associated parts) look good. I'm still printing tunnel portals but I'm going to try that 40' dry van next i think.
Portal with retaining walls.
I'm amazed the printing quality of your printer. The portal and walls look awesome.
