Re: Die Glocke Personal Project

PLA is a good starter filament. I am happy with it for my needs. For particular uses different types may be needed. They all have pro/cons. Just keep it level and you should be fine. Some prints may need to be printed in sections or certain placements. The Bell is broken up into 3 sections due to it...

Re: Die Glocke Personal Project

Hit a snag. Only ABS available in stores by me so I tried it and my bed is malfunctioning aka not heating. Tried a good layer for it to stick to but no good. More PLA is being ordered online.

Re: Die Glocke Personal Project

Update: Top section printed. Had to get more filament. It looks like it is going to be fairly large overall at 10in. Printing mid section now.

Re: Prototype 21st Century Toys 1:18 German...Legit?

Agreed. I got a bunch of that remade stuff cheap a few years ago. All they did was swap the head sculpt from another figure in the series and offered it in lots of 5 for $15 I think. Reproduced prototype versions would be so easy over there. You would have to basically have to buy it to make sure an...

Re: 3d Print Project

I will finish building the dioramas in the near future. This is what I have finished building/painting (not weathered). I am still new to 3D printing and painting. I am definitely learning as I go.

Re: How does your collection grow?

Yeah, I think we all passed on some cool stuff back then by taking it for granted. I recall stacks of Tiger Tanks on clearance that I put off. It helps to appreciate what we do have more. Any plane you create is a great thing. I started to 3D print aircraft. I just finished printing a ME-163. Still ...

Re: Die Glocke Personal Project

I will go ahead and try one of the Thingiverse models. What should be a reasonable size to print it at for 1/18? Maybe 8-10in?

Re: Die Glocke Personal Project

Yeah, some say 10ft tall while others 30+ tall. Not much consistency. Some more rounded and other pics have defined features. The original alleged testimony is lost through interpretation.

Die Glocke Personal Project

Maybe it existed, maybe it didn't, maybe it did but the facts are wrong. It is an interesting project to try. I was hoping for some input if anyone knows the best way to proceed it. I want to 3D print it. There are some designs on Thingiverse I saw. There are multiple designs and sizes when I did so...

Re: Rare 1/18 21st Century Prototype Electronic Sounds Figur

It is like the G.I. Joe ones but better looking. Those would have been interesting for sure. So much potential that was stopped by them closing.

How does your collection grow?

There are many ways we collect. Many types of collections are represented. Let us all know how you keep it alive. Tell us how you keep adding to the armies you amassed. Select the top ways you accomplish this.

I am just doing these for myself. i have no intention on selling or competing. The future is customs and creations for us at this stage. It has been for a while.

I got a 3d printer (CR-10s) recently. I wanted to add some unique items to my collection and dioramas. I have amassed many files since than as well. I am in the process of completing a Stug, Kettenkraftrad, pantherturm, and various smaller items (dragons teeth, hedgehogs, etc.). pantherturm - primin...

I have seen molds of them and other 1/18 WW2 head gear on Ebay in the past but nothing currently. Maybe just check accessory lots that pop up. You may get lucky.
