3D Printed 28mm Panzer IV

At a recent club meeting we were discussing the quality of 3D printed tanks in 28mm scale. There are a lot of freely available print files for 10mm and 15mm scale models which are typically either single piece or small number of pieces but when it comes to larger scales you can’t reliably get a decent level of detail without a multi-part kit.

Following their successful Kickstarter campaign, Canadian company 3D Wargaming have now released a range of 3D printable covering a selection of common WWII and modern vehicles as well as some sci-fi and alternate history ones. I’ve been keen to give What a Tanker a go for a while but don’t currently have any suitable models so I thought it was an ideal opportunity to fire up the printer and have a go and printing the icon Panzer IV to see what the quality was like.

The download for this particular model includes 33 individual STL files and there’s a simple exploded diagram on the publisher’s website but no further instructions so, being in a hurry to set up the print overnight, I just decided to print one of each file which just about fit onto the 20cm x 20cm print bed of my Ultimaker 2+ with a bit of rotating and jiggling around.

3D Printed Gaslands Accessories

I’ve been preparing for my imminent first game of Gaslands by 3D printing and painting some of the accessories needed to play the game.  Pretty much all the bits and pieces you could ever want for Gaslands are available as free downloads on Thingiverse so I had a browse around and picked up a few of the items I liked the best to get me started.
