I think these are better. Only a little thicker now and that may resolve itself when painted.

Have you printed any test samples to see how they look painted?

Reply #100 has some painted ones but with the old sculpts.I haven't got any  from him yet.He says it's very hard to get the fabric thinner.Maybe because the figure is a 1/72? I don't know anything about 3-D printing maybe it depends on the printer.

It probably is down to the difficulty of making the fabric look thin enough - looking at these from Esci - the shirt is as thick as the jacket, so you're not alone.

However they went to market with the figures, so perhaps it's less of an issue than you think, especially in that scale.

Maybe they would look better to me at actual scale.The bigger the picture the more imperfections you see.

Mark, please don’t stop the project! These look great, and in 1/72 scale will be perfect!! I honestly believe they will look awesome painted up

I'm actually getting these made in 20mm not 22mm as I won't be using Massimo's figures for this group.I bought some Turkomen and Afghans off Newline Designs. I may have a few Central Asians done after the Russians.

I received my figures but as nice as they were they didn't fit in with the figures I have.So I asked my sculptor to make me some 22mm.

These are really get nice. I have wanted a good set of colonial Russians for ever..Are these going to be produced digitally? If so, scaling down to 15/18mms would be easy enough.

These are for my personal use.I don't think they are going to sell these commercially. I wish they would.

Excuse my ignorance of the 3D printing world, but once someone has done the sculpt, why on earth would they not market the figures, at least selling the files if not doing the printing themselves?

I see many people selling STL files of 3D-printable stuff for download on Etsy.
