Hi guys

This Hungarian Sdkfz 11 CAD sculpt is not finished, but I got antsy and want to see if it was going to print, so I did a test print, there was an issue with the bench seat in the drivers cab, I think it was weakened when I hollowed the vehicle, I will fix that issue, when I looked at the print I thought the detail, rivets and the like, may have been to small, but after undercoating in grey they are a little more visible, I may go back and enlarge them slightly, what do you think? I have taken pics with another Sdkfz 11 I printed earlier which shows the original file before I did anything to it. I'm pretty chuffed at how it turned out, a few more details to change/add and I will do another print. There is also a rear canvas cover, and a drivers cab roof that will come separately with the vehicle, some people like solid cabs, so I may also do a solid option.
Any suggestions as to further improvements?

A very impressive looking model. A lot of detail considering the small scale. I do think that the size of the rivets looks good as is. I am not familiar with the Hungarian version, however; will the storage bin doors have latches.

Anything you could do to break up the treads would really help. They look like rubber bands.

Yes, need to add door latches and will look at the tracks.

Another vote for the rivets look good as is. If someone wants to make them more visible easy enough to do with a pin wash around each one. The usual problem is with them being too big!

Yes, being to big is common, most of the free STLs are designed to be printed at 1/100, and the fine details are exaggerated.

Looks great to me! Must resist the temptation to get a digital printer. Lol
