Re: 1/6 scale T-34-85

Are these 3-D printed, or other fabrication?

Hi Leonard,
It has some 3d printed parts. We use multiple materials for this model like wood, resin, steel rod, steel sheet, rubber, and plastic.
The total weight is about 12 kg / 27lbs easy to carry.

Those are made of plastic, 3d printed.
Please feel free to ask any questions.

Re: 1/6 scale T-34-85

Would also be interested in a U. S. Half track and sure would like to see some one make an M24 Chaffee some day.

Thank you very much for your kind words.
For US vehicles, M113 is on our 2020 plan. We are working on remodeling our STUG III. It will come out probably next month. We do have Panzer III, but they all sold out and it will also restock in 2020. We will try to keep our future models under $1500.
M3 Halftrack is already on our note, we will think about it.

M24 Chaffee was on our plan for real. The reason we canceled that project because it has too many slopes on the hull. The turret is not a big deal to us, but that hull will spend too much working time. It is not a good one for now, but we won't totally give it up. I believe we will start working on it someday.
Many folks talked about M3 Halftrack with us. We will consider about it.

Re: 1/6 scale T-34-85

The T34 85 is a fantastic piece as is their Pz III. I brought the T34 home from the AMA show last month and added some weld lines and tool box along with paint job. I posted photos over on Face book AZ Joe heads site if any body wants to see them. The tank is fantastic and rolls very nice and weighs about 26 lbs so a average human can move it without losing a nut. The details are crisp and leaves you a great start for more detail or looks fantastic rolling out of the box. Give M.R.S. a call and see what neat ideas he has in store for this hobby and if the chance comes up to own one of these don't hesitate.

Re: 1/6 scale T-34-85

Something British, like a Staghound armored car, or a Diamler scout car? Both had closed top turrets.

A 6-pounder British (US 57mm) antitank gun would be popular too!

Re: 1/6 scale T-34-85

[SIZE="3"]Have their PZ lll which is posted in the Gallery on their web site...the last set down: Photos from the 11th Annual SSCC FIGURECON. They have been fantastic to work with.

The vehicle is true 1/6 and light enough that and old grunt like me can carry it. There using a good light weight material design not like the 200 pound solid metal or 50-60 pound light weight metal.

They were nice enough that some of us who were interested were able to purchase their turret bins separately. My intent when warmer weather arrives is to make it detachable to switch back and forth for different early war Ausfs.

Bravo to Kingsley and crew....keep it up.

Re: 1/6 scale T-34-85

Looks great and the light weight makes it very appealing. Good to see ANYONE making vehicles again! OUTSTANDING!
I'll be looking into this...
