I printed it, but I don't yet have the skills to change files yet, my skills are old school plasticard and greenstuff based.

Hi guys

Have done some more work to these 2, detailed the bed on the V15 (four wheeled one) fitted the crew, added steering columns to the drivers steering wheel, added pioneer tools to the rear, added a notek light, all I've got left to do is make a base for them, fill in some seems and sand, and add a tow bar, then onto a couple more of the vehicle from the set.

Gunner Dunbar, super work. A mate of mine printed me a few French vehicles including some Laffly troop carriers.  I don't have the skill/patience to "super-detail" them, i just gave them a basis paint job. I look forward to seeing them painted.

I'm interested to see how they turned out, are you able to post pics in my thread?

Very nice indeed. I bought a couple of Laffly prints a couple of years  for my 21st Panzer and to say they were a disappointment is an understatement. Those resin prints look decent and the extra work you've put into them has really paid off.

Thanks, yes resin is the way to go, but they are still only as accurate as the 3D sculptor.

Hi guys

Have started detailing the Laffly S45 recovery vehicle, I wanted to replace the thick bed walls, but whilst these models are pretty solid and sturdy, the resin is prone to shatter, and I'm worried I'll damage the truck if I try to cut them out, so I'm going to get creative with my painting to make them less noticeable, also there is a fault in the vehicle deign, the creator has made the bed floor 1 even shallow level, it should have a bench seat down either side and a foot well down the middle, so I have partitioned the foot well off with 2 plastic strips, cut a 44 gallon drum in half and positioned them in the foot well area to look like there is depth. I've also scratch built a crane, replaced the ugly windscreen with a folded down one, and added some crew, I considered doing some work on the spade at the back, but might leave it due to time, these are wargaming standard after all, not display.

The S15 got a new windscreen frame from the spares box, and the v15 got a fold down windscreen, the thick crappy windscreens are a weak point with these prints.

Yeah, it’s a big one, I love the big chunky wheels.

Thanks Carlos

Hi guys

Next up on the mat is a 1/72 Renault AGR, this STL file printed out a little wonky, with some funny indents on the right hand door, there's no door detail, so I will engrave them in, add door handles, window wipers, rear view mirrors, stowage in the bed, and the grill is designed smooth, so adding a radiator grate, the miss shaped wheels are a print error, I'll be rounding them out with some putty.

I have finished the Laffly S45 with a folded down drivers cab tilt.

Nice work. Like you, I'm just starting off with printing, and I play in 28mm, while most available files are in 15mm, and don't upscale all that well.

I wish I could magically learn some CAD skills...

Yeah, it would be a good skill, unfortunately I'm a bit old school.

Hi guys

Finished with the Renault AGR, scribed the door frame, added a seam under the window, widow wipers, door handle, and stowage, and filled out the miss printed wheels, a bit rough, but its a wargaming model.

Started on the Laffly S15 TCC, added seam down the bonnet, radiator cap, and gun barrel, the gun shield was very short, so added some length to it, will be detailing the gun breech area and adding crew next.

Yep,  likewise.  The old school abilities with plastic card and green stuff  turning the prints into very good little models, gaming or otherwise.
A 15mm Laffly S35 T would be a handy addition,  but I don't believe anyone's got round to one yet.
