Armoured car
« on: September 15, 2020, 08:19:59 AM »
Duncan sent me this useful piece.
He may also do a little article on it too.



Having a look round to see what is available for the Mexican Revolution I found this armoured car model for 3d printing on thingyverse. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2640502

I have been in touch with a chap I use for 3d printing who is quite cheap and does a good job and he says he can easily rescale it to 1/100. I think I may order a couple.

It seems quite an interesting one, as it states it is adapted for road or rail and as has been said a lot of use was made of railways during the conflict.

I just thought it was worth passing it on to you in case others wished to get one (or two).

Duncan.

Looks great, thank you.

So how do you order this vehicle in the right scale as indicated by Martin?

Thank you,

Helen

I think itís the osprey book mention /shows the armoured car with rubber ties on the side of the box which were slipped over the rail wheels for road use.

For 3d modelling the file created is in a format that allows you to adjust the size without loosing any details. A company like Shapeways has a variety if people who either print there own models or other files for people... however through shapeways it isnít always cheap.  Also recomend you find someone to print in resin vs the more traditional extrusion type printers.
