Bachem Natter in 1.18

Post by Crazy Kraut » Sun Dec 30, 2018 1:53 pm

Hi folks,
short before years end a good info from Austria. That well talented guy who made several 1:16 scaled models (Mini submarine Biber, V2 and many different more) is going to make a Bachem Natter in 1.18 scale. First drawings for 3d-Print below. What do you think??

This is his first prototyp in 1:16 scale
But he promise to do it in 1:18 scale too. If there is enough interest, of course.
He´s thinking about approx. 150 € for each kit.

The CAD is very good. The printer is bad. Endless amounts of sanding and primer. Would your CAD person consider outsourcing the printing?

I'm very interested! The CAD looks excellent! And if pricing is around 150 EUR, I'm in!

The first prototype print in 1.16scale is not the best quality.
Please see the serial cockpit frames, Instruments and targetequipment in production quality and 1.18 scale:

of course you need to do some Modelling work on this kit. But for me it seems that it is not too much to do.

With orders from Normandy & Pvanroy & Tom Edwards and mine we are at 8 kits. With some more interest (10 kits) this would be possible for Lukas to make it. And it would bring in a new Manufacturer for 1.18 scaled stuff.
He is also planning to do a Startwagen /starting ramp

Fantastic work! May I suggest you move this entire thread to the 1:18 Scale Forum? Likely, a lot more people will see it there, considering that the 1:18 Scale Forum is probably the most visited part of the entire board - and greater exposure will help generate greater interest. Also, it seems more appropriate to have this in the 1:18 Scale Forum anyway, since this is a completely new model, and not a repaint or conversion of an existing model. In any case, looking forward to this!

Lukas (the guy who build it) moved into a new house the last 2 weeks and so I´m still waiting for him to start into production again. Will let you know asap if there are some News about it.

Here’s my little 1/30 scale Natter 8)
This is a Thomas Gunn Miniatures wooden model, which came with figures depicting Erich Bachem (holding umbrella) and Lothar Sieber. I’m not sure if it’s properly scaled or not as it seems a bit too small... But a 1/18 version would be neat :D

I´m in contact with the builder of the 1.18 scaled Natter model and after travelling to a new house he´s back into work with his PC and 3D-Printer. Hope to show pics of progrees in the near future.
Stay tuned

That is some very impressive mold work, this is going to be a very cool model.

Thanks Normandy! Yes, those are FOV 1/32 diorama displays. I finally broke down and got a couple of them last year and they are fantastic! I use them frequently as a backdrop in photos of models, etc. to fill things in.

They do make good backdrops for photos.
I like the second pic with the Natter, Bachem and Sieber...
it would be cool in 1:18. :idea:

Nice model in the diorama... just about the scale, when you look at normandy's first pic, a man is about 3/4 of the length between wing and nose.
