3d concept steam tank

finished the 3d model for my 1:72 scale steam tank. sent it yesterday to the 3d printer. Now we have to wait 10 days to see the result, if the model is approved by shapeways (the 3d print company) that is..... keep you informed.
also painting a unit of flagellants for my empire army. hope to show you some pictures soon.

1/72 empire volley gun

is this our model future? I wanted a volleygun for my 20mm empire army, but how?
the answer I found on the following site:
3d printing for a realy acceptable price. just under $ 5,-. a piece. I got these today. the detail is not as crisp as I would like, but I think it is acceptable. I painted one with silver to show out the details better

and in the original white material....
I'm going to mount it on this undercarriage
this is the original cad drawing. I work with Bentley Microstation. It is a 3d cad program I also use at work.
working at this steamtank at the moment. more to follow soon....
