New horizons for your model-making, Greg?

Yeah. I've got a small resin printer. It's a bit trickier/messier than a filament printer, but the results are much smoother in my opinion. Starting small with a boat hull I found on Thingverse, but I have lots of grand plans. 🙂

Good work!
A 3d printer is a very useful tool, if you can handle it
Is this boat in scale or without?

We are going to see amazing things in the future 🙂

And another nice project 👍

Thanks guys. Simon, the boat is roughly 1/72 scale. It's based on an Aquamarine, but quite a bit smaller, so I just used the Tintin pictures as reference for the size. I've also printed off several 1/700 scale planes for some very small dioramas.

My all-time favourite toy as a child, was a clockwork, tin plate boat like this 👍🙂

Back in action! Painted red and masked. 🙂

Welcome Thomas! A bit more progress. The red lines were too big, so I remasked them and gave the hull another coat of black. Also modified a jeep windscreen… now just the benches and the dashboard to finish off.

This looks promising, Greg!

Very promising i would like to add 🙂 👍

Heh. A silly little project… just the kind I like! Scratchbuilding the interior benches. Almost done.
8 December 2021, 07:12
Greg Baker
Just about done… just a few touch ups to take care of.

Looking really good Greg 👍

Wait - why do I see double in pic 13?
12 December 2021, 15:15
Greg Baker
Simple… I printed two hulls… just in case. 😉
Seemed like a good idea to use the bare one for the wet silicone. Easier to clean, less chance of damage.
12 December 2021, 16:11
Greg Baker
And… we're basically done. Still need to wait for the silicone to cure all the way through to the bottom… and it looks like I need to print a new decal label, but that's about it.

Not bad for a first try at 3D resin printing... if I do say so myself!

The boat as well as the base looks great, but where's tintin?

Another masterpiece for the collection 😎

Turned out excellent! I am keen to follow your 3D printing projects and learn 👍
