Rhino left-side printed

Got my rhino left-side from my 3d print service. LOVE IT!! don't know if it is perhaps a little to small? should I make it just a little bit bigger? Anyway, it is all a big experiment, so le't's see where it ends ;-) . Going to make a mould for it so I can make more of them. Never made a mould, so I guess it is going to be a messy bussiness... keep you informed.

leman russ (cad model)

much to warm to do any painting, just relaxing in the garden with a cold beer and my family and friends. there are worser ways to spend your time... but I did some cad work in my spare time at work, (it has airco). it is a leman russ tank from the 40K universe. I'm not going to print it at the time. waiting on the new material at my 3d printing service, wich makes models with much more details possible. but imagine a battle with lots of 20mm imperial guard and lots of leman russ tanks against my 20mm tyranids!!!

french napoleonics

my first try at french napoleonics. nice figures from italeri. but I'm afraid the whole army has to wait until I finnished my empire army (and romans, and orcs and goblins, and germans, and russians, and undead, and........)

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.

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: http://www.shapeways.com/
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....
