Hi guys

I bought a resin 3D printer a few months back, and have been putting it to good use on my 15mm 40K projects, but I really wanted to print some historical stuff, so did some test prints for my WWII early war French, with mixed results, all files were obtained of Thingyverse, theres a fair few free WWII files available, enough to make it worthwhile, more to supplement a collection than to be the source of a whole collection,  I think all these files were scaled to 1/72nd, however I researched vehicle dimensions and made any adjustment just in case, (I don't think there was much adjusting needed) all printing errors are mine, need to adjust supports for some of the models the tanks turned out quite nice, the trucks are OK, but 1 wheel has a flat spot, and some of the cars aren't great, only happy with 1 I think, the 2 vans need re doing as well, figs are from Simons soldiers, and a Heller Somua and a pre made Char B1 for scale. I'll try and fix any errors with green stuff,  if Im not happy with the results I'll use them as wrecks for scatter terrain, I have a fair few trucks, tanks and even guns, to test print yet, even have a couple of aircraft.

These resin printers are amazing I highly recommend getting one, mines a creality LD002R

heres  a list of the vehicles in the pics

1x Peugeot DK5 Ambulance

1x Peugeot MNB 1939

3x AMR-35 tanks (this one was scaled down from 1/56)

2x Citroen traction 11B Berline

2x Citroen traction Berline leger

2x Renault AGR trucks

Looking Good  :-* :-* :-*
Is that the wheels for the cars in the back of the truck or is that a separate truck load?

Excellent mate, if I was in Oz still I would buy some off you.

Where did you buy the STL for the French trucks they look great?

Hi guys

Yes, wheels are all in the truck, and no, these aren't for sale, these are my own collection, all files free of Thingyverse
 Hi guys

Several people asked me on my last post, how much do these cost to print, well I got a 500g bottle of resin, it was $36 Australian, around $27.50 US, and this is what I printed, with enough resin left over for maybe 2 more vehicles, all 1/72, so about $1.71 per vehicle/gun, there is some extra cost in LCD and FEP replacement, it probably comes out to around $1.80-$1.90 per.

Pretty happy with how these turned out, a couple of small errors here and there, but nothing I can't fix with a bit of green stuff, in this test print we have the following

2x Berliet VUDB

2x Citroen traction 11B (re print to work out kinks)

2x Citroen legere (re print to work out kinks)

2x Citroen U23

2x Laffley S45

1x Command Panhard

1x Panhard

4x W15 Variants

1x Peugeot 301

1x 155mm Mk2

1x 75mm Frances

Looks great :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*
I will need to get my brother on to printing some more stuff for me
I do struggle to find stuff in the right scale in thingiverse, why does nobody make print models in 1/72 scale?

They don't need to be 1/72, you can print a file at any scale, you just need to re scale them in a slicer.

Hi guys

I had 2 discs replaced and fused in my neck last week, so I have some "light" hobby time on my hands while I recover, I received a new Iwata airbrush for Christmas which I had not had a chance to use, so I have had a day of airbrush work on my Stalingrad, Romanian and French WWII projects. Wow, I didn't think there would be much difference between my old sparmax and the new Iwata airbrushes, but I must say the Iwata is a much better tool.

Nice! And good to hear you’re on the mend :) I also have disc problems (cervical),and two fractured vertebrae (thoracic),so I readily sympathise  :)

Thankfully never fractured mine, injured my neck 3 or 4 times playing Army Rugby in the 90s, and developed osteoarthritis, but it hasn't been quite a week yet, and I already think theres going to be  an improvement.

 Hi guys

Did some more work on these over last couple of days, added chipping, blackened the wheels and barrels, base coated the tracks and added various filters, next up a gloss coat, decals and a pin wash, the CharB1 bis needs some other camo colours added.

Hi guys

Have gloss coated, added decals, pin washed, matt coated then added oil steaking, next up a dry brush, maybe another pin wash, and will start adding mud and dust. Have left the Char B1 out from this process, on the side I have started putting together my French force, I'll slide him into that project after this one is completed.

 Hi guys

More work on my Stalingrad German/Russian/Romanian projects, have painted the details (they still need a highlight) then did an overall dry brushed. Next I will highlight the tools, canvas rolls/stowage, then a mud wash, then some pastels.
