Another first in 1/56 scale...
« on: December 22, 2017, 01:39:32 PM »
This is a simple looking sprue with some pleasant surprises!

For the technically minded, we are applying multi-slide techniques to this sprue producing fine details (in this case, rivets) on all three sides of this upper hull piece. Another first in 1/56 scale! This paves way for us to do smaller vehicles with complicated details as a single piece component instead of multiple smaller parts. Can't wait to try out this breakthrough technique again on a new project next year!



Enjoy!
;)

Excellent.

I can see that being useful. And making Tyroflyer's year.

That looks remarkably good.  It seems rivets are no longer the pain in the arse they used to be.  Hopefully that does mean more early war armour!

Well thanks for thinking of me uvs! Any advance is to be welcomed. We'll see what use is made of it.
