[COMMERCIAL] Medium C "Hornet" again (but bigger)
« on: September 19, 2021, 12:27:34 AM »
I've redesigned my 1:100 scale model of the Medium C "Hornet" for 1:56 (28mm). That mainly means refining the size of the rivets, adding some detail to the Hotchkiss machine-guns, and a few other bits and pieces.


It's at https://www.wargaming3d.com/product/medium-c-hornet-156/

Below is a picture of the 1:100 scale model, printed in FDM on my Ender 3

It was designed as a replacement for the Whippet, and it was better in every single way, but WW1 finished before it could come into service. It stayed in service with the British army until the mid-1920s.

Thanks! Faster than my googling!

What I found out was that the Medium Mark C, would go on to be replaced by the Medium Mark I.  In a classic bit of military naming convention. Resetting from letters to Roman numerals.

Could be used for Back of Beyond, so I'm interested
as our group do that in 28mm.
How much, & when? :)

There's a link to the STL in the original post, it's $7.50, but you'd have to sort out your own 3d printing.

Bugger!  I'm still 'Old School' I'm afraid. :?
