These are excellent, I love them. I'll be printing them to go with my old TTG 15mm sci-fi figures.

Glad you like them. I was thinking today that I'll probably tackle a set of sci-fi-specific vehicles in 2022. I could use some for my own sci-fi gaming as I'm starting to find that the more I design the less I want things that aren't my own creations on the table. My sci-fi efforts now feature only figures I've sculpted, so only vehicles I've sculpted would be a next logical step as well.

The fourth car is ready to test print:


This one is a bit smaller than the others. More of a mid-sized vehicle. It is 30mm tall, 36mm wide, and 66mm long.


Up on its wheels:


One other feature that I will add back later for the other cars is a more detailed undercarriage. This isn't meant to be anatomically correct, but rather add some flavor if you happen to want to set up your cars upside down.


I will get car #4 test printed this week, painted over the long weekend, and then pictures will be ready next week with files posted on Thingiverse shortly after that.

Car #3 is finished:


This was loosely based on the Fallout 1 Corvega




I will have the STL files posted on Thingiverse by the end of the day. Enjoy!

Very nice! I like the looks of it quite well.
Just remember "If the Enemy is in range, so are YOU!

This will be the final vehicle for the set (#5), but I plan to make a couple of different bed options. So first is the pickup bed:


This truck measures 40mm tall, 46.5mm wide, and 108mm long.


This is still a WIP, and I plan to add a toolbox up against the cab.


Other versions that I'm contemplating will be a delivery truck and a camper van. I should have Car #4 painted and ready for display by the end of the week, and then the digital files posted shortly after that.

Car 4 is painted up. I'll have the files loaded up on Thingiverse today.


I like the look of this one a lot, though it comes across like a street-legal bumper car. Maybe that wouldn't be a terrible thing?


And, just in case you don't want the bottom to look completely blank, here is a slightly less blank version of the undercarriage.


I will try to have the truck files (Car #5) up by the end of the week as well.

Kind of reminds of the old Renault Dauphine



It is a great model and the paint works really well with this one.

I had Nash Metropolitan in mind:


But it is really more based on this car from Fallout 4:


A mix of both, really.

I've started working on some wrecked versions of the cars. There is a lot of work that will really happen in post-production (paint, weathering, etc), so I'm trying not to get too busy with the model itself.


The next step is to create a suitable base, as I would like the car to be sitting cockeyed as if it had a blown tire, or failed suspension.

I can see how much of the Nash is in your design now. Great job!

Glad you all like them. Tomorrow I should have the final car posted for download.
