3D printed parts
Posted by Spinneyhead on Friday, July 21, 2017 9:56 AM

3D printed stuff- 1:35th roof rack for Italeri Land Rover kit

3D printed stuff- JDM/drift car bits 1:32nd

3D printed stuff- 1:72nd/1:76th custom car hood scoops

 

Pardon the soft focus on some of these, but they're too small for my phone's macro mode to properly cope with. For reference, the squares on the cutting board are 1cm each.

These are all samples of my 3D designs that I've had printed- a roof rack for the Italeri 1:35th Land Rover, JDM inspired interior deatils in 1:32nd, and hood scoops for 1:72 or 1:76th scale cars. I had them printed by Shapeways in their frosted detail plastic (it comes in two grades, Ultra and Extreme. I can't remember which one each of these prints was in.)

In the interest of self promotion, they, and other designs are available from my Shapeways shop. I'll be using them in various projects soon.

What I'd like to know is- what detailing components would you like to see for your projects? I'd like to fill any gaps in the market.

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

With dimensions and a few images of the original, I'll definitely give it a go. I'm not very good at sculpting, but that's more of an issue for designing characters than components.

For the roof rack, I copied the painting diagram from the instructions and took measurements with a micrometer. With those, I was able to do a design, and the model went together easily from there.

It's overcast in Manchester, but not as threatening as yesterday. Which is good, because I'm about to go on a bike ride along the ship canal.

I've got ideas for other Land Rover components for the 1:35 one. Once they're designed, they can be resized for different scales (then adjusted a bit more, to fit the dimensions of your kit, most likely). A bumper with a winch and/or bull bars is likely soon, as is a hi-lift style jack. A snorkel was another component I was considering, so I'll add it to the list.

For the Austin grill, as I said above, if you have dimensions and photos of the original design, I can give it a go.

I forgot about it when I replied earlier, but a designer going by Panzers Vs Tanks has a set of Land Rover wheels in 1:24th. I can't speak to the quality of this particular design, but I bought their Yamaha chopper in 1:35th, and it's really good.

PvT has a wide range of designs, across a lot of scales. And is keen to resize for different scales once they've got a design done.

I've scaled the rack up to 24th scale, but I don't have anything to check the dimensions against. If you have a model of a 109" Landy, can you measure the width of the roof, and I'll resize it if necessary.
