What Gun? by Midlife306 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 days ago
Hi, I can 3D print a dome as per the attached photo any size & strength you want, it can be a solid lump or hollow, your call, all I need to know is what outside diameter you want it to be. Cheers Wayne

Finally it's completed by Midlife306 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 9 days ago

Crash Tender Shaft Tube Poistion by Midlife306 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 19 days ago
Yes I know it should be a Sherman or Matilda, tbh they look lame in comparison to the Tiger, so it's my LCM3 & it's getting a Tiger🖕😂 Hehe Mark👏 Cheers Wayne

Ahh sod it, here's a pic of a proof of concept print I've done, printed at roughly 1/56 scale, looks good to me so I'm on with printing one at 1/16 to fit my LCM3 landing craft. Cheers Wayne

Hi Doug, STL file emailed to you. Marky, hehe I'm no master, I just load the files I find & press print lol😂 Neil, pics attached, the oiler is really simple, only takes a few mins to print. 3d printing makes it really easy to make loads of the same thing that look identical, I'm on with a side project at the moment that needs over 200 of the same part printing out, I'll save pics of that until it's nearing completion 👍 Cheers Wayne

Crash Tender Shaft Tube Poistion by Midlife306 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 19 days ago
I can 3D print shaft oilers if anyone is interested 👍 I'll post some pics when I get home from work Cheers Wayne

Cheers Dave👍 I've been trying to work out a way to lift the ramp, ended up putting a hole through each of the parts of the upper hull & putting a 2mm I/d tube through, it's all coming together nicely now. I ended up reprinting the ramp, call me a snob, but I figured it should be the same colour as the rest of the boat. Cheers Wayne

Oh, you can get filament containing wood, carbon fibre, aluminium, brass, copper etc etc, it's a whole new world to me. Cheers Wayne

Graf Spee 1:20 !! All aboard ;-) by Midlife306 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 27 days ago

Don't underestimate the capability of 3D printing😂 https://youtu.be/sBRLrrM7DsJust remember it's made from 6" square blocks🤓👍 Cheers Wayne

Here we go, the finished article 👍 I wasn't happy with the ones that are printing on the LCM3, I found these, altered the scale so that the bottom flange is 20mm diameter & they fit the bill perfectly. Found the file on thingiverse Cheers Wayne

3d printing by Midlife306 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Doh.. I'll post a pic shortly 🤓 The cooler mount? I got the semicircular fan duct from Thingiverse, there are loads of different designs on there👍 Cheers Wayne
