Any suggestions? Belle Watling needs representation as well. Thanks.

Hi guys

1st test print of the German Hf2 horse drawn cart done, I need to thicken/strengthen the break lever mechanism, the shovel and the axles, there was some breakage there, I also may consider making the hitching pole a seperate piece, to lessen warping, and enable it to be positioned however you like, which would lessen the STL files from 4 to 3.

I'm pretty happy with how these turned out, the wood grain is especially nice, I think the sizing is about right, have added various 20mm-1/72 figures for scale, as far as horses go, I'm going to add harnesses to a few free horse STLs and see how they look, try and get a variety of horse poses.

Once done I'll add it as a free download to my shop link

Your work is amazing. The kits are very nice. I agree that some of the smaller pieces should be printed separately. There is nothing wrong with the detail parts being applied separately instead of printed on

I am envious of your design ability. I opened Blender a few times only to recoil in shock and horror.

Nice, Dan. Will you do them in grey or three colours, like the one at Saumur?

Gunner Dunbar25 May 2023 6:57 a.m. PST

Both, I'll print a bunch and paint 2 batches, 1 early 1 late, and they could be combine anyway, my next design will be the ambo version, test printing the horses now.

That should start a few lively discussions, Dan, with those who don't believe wagons were painted in three colours. ;-) I look forward to seeing the painted examples, mate.
