Alec K Thanks mates for looking and for the positive feedback. Very motivating

@Mike D: well, you are further along that I. Per Shapeways website, they accept STL, Collada, OBJ, X3D(B) and VRML2 (https://shapeways.com/tutori..?li=t_menu#faq-3dfileformats )

@Cuajete: Feasible? Perhaps. Likely? Not very... :S :D :D :D

Alec K Łukasz: The Czech pre-war khaki, to my best understanding, came in two basic shades. A Czech company called Agama offers both versions in their alcohol paint line (they also have an acrylic line that is not as good IMHO). These are Light Khaki (Agama C4P, used by Avia), and Dark Khaki (Agama C5P, used by Letov and Aero). Here is their website: https://obchod.agama-model.cz/en-kategorie_56583-0-poland.html They ship overseas at very reasonable cost (at least they did to US). Hope this helps

Alexander G. "It could be feasible to order to shapeways.com an 1/72 Antonov An-225?? "
Since you can 3D print a house by now so why the hell not :S :D
15. September at 11:23:16
Alec K Maybe somewhere, but on Shapeways, using the Fine Detail Plastic material, the largest object you can print is 284 × 184 × 203 mm (Smooth) 50 × 50 × 200 mm (Smoothest), So, to build An-225, you would need LOTS of small subassemblies. Bottom line, not very likely ;)
15. September at 15:20:56
Choppa Nutta if you could hold of the cad file in question one could break it down into smaller components but you'd need to make a sub frame so you could piece it together afterwards so it is possible but there's a bunch work that one would need to do :)
One thought that does occur is to print the difficult to make compound curves like the nose, root fairings, wheels, wing tips etc. etc. and to scratch build the rest using a panel scriber for the panel lines, either way a lot of work but at 4 feet across it would be one impressive model !! :)
15. September at 16:14:08
Łukasz Gliński Diky Alec and sorry for the OT :)
15. September at 17:57:11
Cuajete Thank you for your comments about the possible 3D printing of an Antonov An-225 at 1/72 scale.
Naturally it would be dividing into parts. If you get the model of a whole piece, I guess you could not call it modeling :D.
As you say, the bad thing about all this is the high price and that I would have a lot of work, but it is the price that must be paid for having an exclusive model that manufacturers do not make at this scale.
16. September at 13:41:38
Choppa Nutta price could be greatly reduced if you scratch build the non compound curves with sheet styrene :)

Bart Goesaert The print was only a few months ago, it was the size of An old phone horn. Finely printed, but a hell to clean, spray with paint filler, sand, repeat, felt like modelling though but at work. ;)

Material used I'll need to ask. But structure looked like the material used on Lode's turrets. Looks softisch, but very hard to sand.

Mike Daniels Thank you very much Alec K. That was a very interesting.

I certainly cannot see any evidence of the 'steps'. You would need a magnifying glass to make them out!! Wow, what a great project and superb result. It looks like 3D printing will certainly be entering the add on market big time soon. Being able to get bespoke unique customised parts is going to be highly attractive to model makers in the future. I imagine most manufacturers are already looking into this. As you say, fairly (but comparably) expensive as yet, but prices will fall with greater demand.

All we need now is someone to create 3D models down to the very last nut and bolt and we are set for some interesting painting. I feel a laser guided brush must be in the offing soon ha, ha. Cant wait for your next build. Inspiring stuff.

Alec K Choppa: thanks very much for the info, good to know that acetone reacts with PLA plastic. The 3D prints I used for this project use a resin that has a different chemical composition: I tried to use acetone, lacquer thinner, and Tamyia this cement, but none of these reacted with the print material.

Bart: thanks for the info as well. Sounds like it's the Shapeways' resin-based Acrylic Plastic / photopolymer.

Mike: thanks for the confidence
09. September at 16:18:57
Daniel Klink Awesome. I like your interpretation very much Alec....
Fantastic job Mate....
09. September at 16:38:15
Choppa Nutta From what I read from your link it seems it might be an acrylic plastic, I think the PLA and SLA plastics are nylon/delrin based, but I might be misremembering, it's been a while since I've read up on this :)
