Some new 1/6 'Garage build' manufacturers

Hi All,

'Garage build' manufacturers are typically small 1 or 2 man operations who design (and possibly build & paint) 1/6 products. either in a small production run or on commission basis.

I know some of you don't like to venture inte Facebook, so I thought it would be a good idea to show you some 1/6 'Garage build' manufacturers.

I'll update this thread when I come across Garaga build manufacturers, which I think might be worth a good look.

Even if you don't want to get on Facebook with a dummy account, you'll probably know someone near you who does use Facebook

Cheers,

Randall

Theo Dorus Oudbier

https://www.facebook.com/groups/4305...00007074573987

Theo is a dutch Garage builder. He has produced a large number of 1/6 vehicles including:
- Various WC Dodge versions
- Various Universal Carrier types
- Various CMP vehicles like the GM C15TA Armoured truck and GM Otter Recon
- Several versions of allied trailers for Jeeps and trucks.
Hatches and doors are usually functional.

He will take orders for unpainted a painted vehicles, with or without insignia.

I've attached some samples of his recent work.

Warprints

https://www.facebook.com/warprints

Warprints started as a Garage builder of 1/16 scale vehicles but has started producing 1/6 scale vehicles. His first 1/6 scale products is a Hetzer. He designs his products in 1/1 scale and then resizes them to a smaller scale. His products are designed to be RC'd

Warprints offers various services:
- You can buy the 3d files and use your own printer to print the parts. The 3d files can be printed on a regular 3d fdm printer with a build area of 200x200mm.
- You can order the vehicle as a complete kit, with all 3d printer parts and hardware to put it together.
- You can order a complete vehicle with painting optional.

I've added some pictures of the completed Hetzer and the Cromwell, which he is currently working on.

From his FB post of Jun 21, 2022:
1/6 scale Hetzer:
kit number 3 will be completed soon.
The last parts will be printed in a few days.
I'm starting to do the XTC-3D coating and postprocessing.
If you are interested, it can be sent in about 2 weeks.
As everytime, its printed with ASA, PET(G) and resin - NO PLA!!!
Here are videos with the assembled vehicle:

Minialand

https://www.facebook.com/minialand

Minialand produces items in various scales. Most recently he produced two French tanks:
- Renault F17
- Renault R35
and he is currently working on an SPG-version of the R35.

His 3d designs can be purchased so you can print it yourself or you can have him build a completed version with optional painting and RC-pack.

Re: Some new 1/6 'Garage build' manufacturers

Do the three individuals have websites or an email address? I am one of those that doesn't have a facebook account and don't plan on getting one.

I do appreciate you putting this list together.

Re: Some new 1/6 'Garage build' manufacturers

I'm building one of Tomas Fudor (Warprints) 1/6 scale Hetzers. Its pretty decent kit, but took a long while to get the tracks from him. The quality of prints is good and detail of the model is nice. It does take a bit of DIY on the electronics, although he does provide good instructions.

He can be reached via email: tomas.fudor@gmail.com. You can purchase the STL to print yourself at Cults:

Re: Some new 1/6 'Garage build' manufacturers

Would be great if Warprint could also produce a Marder kit but would take producing a lot more parts.


Dutchman, thanks for the posts. I was able to have my sister contact Theo on facebook and am now corresponding with him. Thank you.

No I couldn't find any. But I see you managed to find someone with FB access and sorted it out.

Re: Some new 1/6 'Garage build' manufacturers

Thanks for this. These are some beautiful pieces of work. It's good to know the hobby is still alive out there.

Like others, I don't venture on facebook, and have no intention of doing so, so your recon is appriciated.

I hope SAG will be back soon so I can continue to update this thread with new interesting Garage builders.

Re: Some new 1/6 'Garage build' manufacturers

Been trading emails with Theo and he also produces detail parts for the Dragon Sherman tank, mostly internal parts, including the engine, transmission, shifting gears, seats and other parts.
