Is there anyone interested in a model of the Indian copy of the Vickers III tank, the Vijayanta? I made a CAD model. The great thing about digital files is they can be scaled up and down.

This tank played a pretty big role in some of the wars between Inda and Pakistan. It is such an oddball but I found it interesting.

Neat! You can always share such things on Thingiverse, and there are ways to sell it pretty easily, too, if that's what you intend.

I'm glad you did that. There's a guy named MBergman who did a *lot* of WW2, WW1, and modern vehicles, and I mean a *LOT* and made them all available free. I am very thankful, because printing tanks is fun, and having them whatever scale you feel like is even more fun.

Are you going to print some?

You can scale them, sure, but as with cast miniatures you need different levels of detail and different degrees of detail protrusion for different sized prints. Some models will print well at one size and look awful at another size.
