What … what am I looking at? Is this model in its finished state?

czfq2b30 Oct 2018 6:34 a.m. PST

What scale is being shown? As the resolution lines take away from otherwise nice model.

JimDuncanUK30 Oct 2018 6:56 a.m. PST

Looks pretty rough to me.

Fresh out of the mold, obviously :)

2.8cm sPzB 41 Schwere Pnzerbuchse 41s always give me a warm and fuzzy feeling.

(but seriously, cleaned up, these will be pretty nice. And a good price)

A free roaming ectoplasm experience.

Is this from a 3D printer?

Personal logo PrivateSnafu Supporting Member of TMP30 Oct 2018 8:26 a.m. PST

Complete lack of pride. Puked out.

DinOfBattle230 Oct 2018 8:45 a.m. PST

Wow, that is embarrassing.

dwight shrute30 Oct 2018 8:54 a.m. PST

is it on fire ???

I dislike cleaning flash from figures.
This is not a good advertisement.

Timmo uk30 Oct 2018 9:17 a.m. PST

I agree – this is not a great way to advertise the model but at least it might give an honest image of what folks are likely to expect for their money.

Tigerjlm30 Oct 2018 9:27 a.m. PST

Ouch, that is a model that would best be printed in parts. Orientation is key to reducing effect/notice-ability of print lines. A smaller extruder would help too.

I thought it was for a GW chaos army.

Who asked this joker30 Oct 2018 11:48 a.m. PST

This gun should have printed much cleaner than that. Me thinks the printer needs some settings tweaked.

NickNorthStar30 Oct 2018 11:58 a.m. PST

Gosh. Some marketing advice wouldn't go amiss here LOL

Come on put it down to battle damage.

But it legs supports look like they came from a very large spider.

Forager30 Oct 2018 3:14 p.m. PST

Looks like my puppy got a hold of it.

Did Editor Bill ask the advertiser if they really intended to showcase their product this way? Was a suggestion made to either showcase a product ready for painting or, if such a rough model was intended to be shown, that some explanation such as "right out of the printer but easy to clean up to painting condition" (and having a picture of one ready for paint) be included in the ad?

nnascati Supporting Member of TMP30 Oct 2018 6:29 p.m. PST

What gets me is that the manufacturer has not spoken up to defend his product.

Personal logo Bobgnar Supporting Member of TMP30 Oct 2018 10:29 p.m. PST

Maybe it is just covered with vegetation as camouflage.

Hmm. As a follow on from the Shermans that were posted a week or two back I'm beginning to feel that 3D printing is not the 'Wave of the Future' we were led to believe.

To be clear, FDM and Resin printers are not replacements for current model manufacturers but a lower cost addition to the marketplace.

coopman31 Oct 2018 9:03 a.m. PST

It's a Cactus Gun.

Never a truer statement. I can print a 1/72 scale medium tank for under $2. USD I am trading prep time for money.

coopman31 Oct 2018 11:36 a.m. PST

Maybe we should wait for 3D HD to come out.

dwight shrute31 Oct 2018 2:46 p.m. PST

two hours spent on filing or covering print lines even on mimimum wage just doesn't work out .

I can appreciate that, but I have to agree w/ the comment,i.e., If your going to advertise a product, you'd want to do your best to make it look its best.

Tigerjlm01 Nov 2018 5:01 a.m. PST

@Part_time_gamer, I absolutely agree. Butler needs to work on their product promotion. Especially since they promote variable scales, they should be identifying what they are showing us in the pictures for reference. I checked out their website and it also lacks clarity.

dwight shute you say two hours cleaning does not work. I have prepared BPM products in a lot less than 2 hours. But I accept that now I am retired I am time rich, money poor. As opposed to when working when I was time poor money rich.

Everyone here has different budgets and time constraints. BMP product are a lower cost alternative. They are not as sharp as modern resin or plastic, but compared to most metal 15mm they are far better and easier to prep.
