Very interested in acquiring some 1/48 AGM-129s if you are interested in selling them.

Just got an e-mail from Staples (UK stationery supplier): they're selling plug'n'play 3D printers in their high street shops now. £1500 for the base model, £2000 for the better one. No idea how the specs compare to other printers. This is the product page:

Staples (actually a US based company BTW) is also selling 3D printers through their US stores:

When I get the file refined, I'd be happy to send you a couple.

Here's my latest production:


I've been playing with this as a possible V-44/QTR nacelle.  I think I may have gone a little too big with this, though.

Another start to the work week, another couple 3D printing projects:

Pelican cases:


Barrels, pallets and stokes litters:


Pallet close up:


Litter and barrels:


I have a SAR-type rescue basket file, but the printer doesn't like it right now.  Also working through a couple of inflatable life raft containers during my lunch.

Here's a couple of quick and dirty missile containers I whipped up.  I have intentions of using one of my Trumpeter LAV-25's to make an ADATS type vehicle.

Looking really good and making buying a printer more and more tempting.  The Dremel 3d printer will apparently be available in local hardware stores soon.

The Technology of printing physical 3D objects from digital data using vertical axis manufacturing process is called “additive manufacturing.”

The amount of material, the rotation of the platform and the design of the object is administered in a computer controlled environment.

This technology allows for complex shape, size and dimensions which are not easily or economically available using traditional manufacturing tooling methods.3d printing service india allows low cost production of highly specific, low volume products or mass markets quicker.
