I have continued to experiment with the 3d printer over the past few months.
|Test prints of the various Landing Craft needed|
I recently started planning to put on a set of large games around the Normandy Landings for June 2024. I have a large number of the wonderful Leva (and more recently LegionsIVHire) bunkers and defensive positions. But as I am doing this in 1/300 scale I have the opportunity to have a large number of landing craft of various types so that the seascape truly looks like "wall to wall ships" as various German reports stated on the morning.
So I have acquired various STL files for these craft and have been resizing and doing test prints. This will allow me to realise a long held dream - many of these variants are not commercialy available in resin or lead. As well the cost of those that are available range from 5-15 pounds. So to put a lot of them on the table would have involved a significiant investment.
At the moment they are simply undercoated. I have some more work to do to tune the file and printer to get rid of some of the step marks - but otherwise I am delighted.
