:smiley: :smiley:  Have ordered a set - will let you know what they are like when they get here.
@Greg/GTX: you should have waited for the maker to add in the other material options and scales.  In his reply to my inquiry he stated that it would take several days/a week to get that done along with scaling the model down to 1:48th and 1:72nd.

Except it is really only the 1/35 version that I am interested in.

Well I certainly hope this gets sorted out and it was just the maker needing to make a few adjustments in order to get it to pass the test and allow it to be printed.

A PSA that Shapeways has changed the names of the 3D material line up. While the materials are the same, the names have changed.

Actually more recognition goes towards CMC at FB as I only commented to his original post about the materials and the new names they have come up with.

Hi everyone,

I've been expanding my scale models inventory. Thought you guys would like to see what i've been working on so here's a sample...

Can you recognise every single type ?

For more you can have a look at the shop here : https://www.shapeways.com/shops/lippisch

This is a nice, easy conversion for 1:35th scale modelers.  Intended for the Meng Ford F350 or any 35th scale HMMWV kit.  I would imagine it might be easily adapted to other subjects if desired.

Same here.

If you start with the "Quote" button in someone's post, no issue, but if you try to add it later using the "Insert Quote" button, no dice! ???

Not really all that worried about it at the moment Greg, just something I noticed after the server move/forum upgrades.  I am also encountering a similar issue at YouTube which is no longer allowing me to share to FB.

This is the 1/350 Keldish bomber by Hamza Foriath.
 
The Keldish antipodal bomber is clearly a Russian variation of the Sanger Antipodal bomber (also printed by Hamza).

Surprisingly, I didn't break anything while removing the printer artifacts:





The decals are from a Trumpeter 1/350 Mig-29 kit.

1/72 tsar bomb
On October 30, 1961, the largest hydrogen bomb explosion experiment in human history was conducted, with the deployment of the Tsar Bomba. The resulting explosion was measured at 50 megatons; the yield could have been as high as 100 megatons if uranium were used in the bomb. A specially modified Tu-95 was used to drop the bomb, and a decelerating parachute was attached to the bomb to gain escape time for the aircraft. To date, the destruction caused by this weapon has never been equaled.

Shapeways prices have gone up; they should have been coming down, especially for the higher resolution printing processes.

Shapeways has become a real disappointment.  I too was expecting prices to go down with the improvements in technology but not so.
