These all look gorgeous. Next time, any chance we can get higher resolution pictures?
You bet! The Raptor came today. It's BIG. (6.2"!!) You could probably bludgeon somebody to death with it. They're a bit hard to photograph, some bright spots show up with the flash that aren't normally visible. But here are some shots with a camera that's slightly better than my phone.
Was just on my way to finally order one or two a when I noticed the Dralthi, Arrow and Hellcat were added... So I caved and went for these in stead
Can't wait to receive them; I'll try to post a picture when I do!
Oh, I didn't realize that the fighters were already finished. Klavs, can you post some photos of the printed arrows and hellcats?
Well, I have some Arrows on the way, but I thought I'd put the rest of them up and see if anybody would be my guinea pig for the first batch! prototyping all these myself is getting expensive and you guys shouldnt have to wait! Sndwv, let me know if you have any troubles with production and I'll fix any problems asap. And make sure to post pictures when you do get them!
ahh, I see
are you planning to put up the dralthi IV or some arena ships maybe?
Jeez, there's no pleasing you guys! I'm ONLY ONE MAN!!!
Don't underestimate yourself, klavs.
Just received my Scimitar, Rapier, Hornet and Raptor in color. Marvellous work.
One of the Raptor's wing-mounted antennae broke off during production, but Shapeways asked if they could send it anyway and mailed me a photo. I agreed since it looked like it could be easily fixed, just to laud Shapeways' customer support once more.
That's great Red! Could you post some pictures? The material is kind of hard to photograph, maybe you'll have better luck than I did. Sorry about your neutron gun, I tried to make them big enough that even if they broke off they could be glued back on with relative ease. I'm still in awe of how big the Raptor turned out. It's huge!
klavs, would it be possible to get the rapier in the wc 2 color sheme?
Done! And a low viz version, too!
And yes, there's a Dralthi IV in the works as well!
Ooo... will need to pick these two up as well!
will the dralthi be the wc3, wc4 or prophecy variant?
edit: the shopping list is going to expand I guess.
Some awesome work there,
Unique gift ideas, need to buy!!!!
Here's some shots of the Rapier that just came!
Couldn't take any better picture myself. I think those last two show the overall... i don't know... mouldy or frosty texture well. It looks good, but a little different to what you might expect.
These are all too good to be true. Do you think you could design a base so it would look professional on a desk? Perhaps angle it a little
I think you could probably build one or buy one for cheaper than I could design one for 3d printing. Here are some examples, there's probably tons more out there!
I see, you're probably right I don't know much about this sandstone like material Have you experimented with some kind of clear resin like a polyurethane wood finish to smooth them out maybe bring out the color?
