That's a great looking model (assuming the barrels are easily straightened), and an interesting choice of figure for the size comparison. I can imagine him saying

"Привет, товарищи! Посмотри что я нашел!"

I'd be tempted to replace the guns with brass rod or tube, but otherwise great looking model.

I agree with Vigilante. Strange they wouldn't consider including metal barrels for a kit (is it a kit?) of that apparent quality.

This is a 3D printed prototype, the material is basically resin and therefore easily deformed by high room temperature. The final product is in plastic and the issue will be resolved.

Wow. I saw 3D prototype, but didn't make the connection with 3D printing … doh. I blame approaching old-age ,-)

Do you do the printing in-house, then? Or does it involve some fantastically expensive 3D printing service?

Happy you like it boys!. (smile)

Dwindling Gravitas, we have 3D printing equipment in-house. Faster turnaround time and better security control on our digital design files.

@Tango … get out of the way :-)

@Rubicon: Thank you. I'm fascinated by 3D printing, and admit to being a little bit stunned at the quality/detail you guys are able to produce.

I'm guessing the decision to prototype via 3D printing but mass produce in plastic is based on cost?

@Dwindling Gravitas – Indeed, the final product will be in plastic. The 3D printing is for in-house review of the kit details and the various parts, how they are being fitted and assembled, and discussions on improvements. We are using professional grade printers and hence more expensive to print per job.
