Very interesting, please tell us more about. Welcome here at Bennos!

And I would suggest to choose another photo-host to avoid the watermarks from photobucket. ;-)

ImageImagesince childhood I dreamed of making my own figurines but I never had the opportunity, mostly for financial reasons.
When I saw that there were cheap 3d printers on the market, I immediately bought them and started learning to work on Blender. A new world opened up for me.
I immediately started experimenting, I didn't know where to start. I had so many ideas ...
the only big problem is that the material is quite fragile and thin parts break easily.
I hope to find one similar to the one used for commercial plastic soldiers. Maybe in that case I would start thinking about selling.
these figures are mostly made from the poses of already existing airfix figures, which in my opinion are the best on the market.

Looking great. Do you plan to sell the models? The world severly lacks good printable infantry, everyone focuses on the tanks...

Thanks,until I find some better material, less fragile, it's not worth to selling them.I share your opinion that everyone makes tanks and vehicles, but you have nothing to put in .Sometimes not even a driver.for now I am working on allied vehicle crewsI will paint them soon and put some
pictures on the forum.Have you seen those for Us halftrack and amphibous jeep?

Have you thought about sharing the files (stls?) for the figures you have created with those who have their own printers?

I meant the stl files, sorry :) I have a good resin printer at home.

I only have crews from 3DBreed, and they are very chunky, similar to Britannia. Nothing to match plastics sadly :(

Check Wargaming3D, there are a number of figures sold there too. I would aim for 5-8€ per pack, I'd guess you would get reasonable amount of sales in that region.

I use imgbb.com. it is very simple to use, free and there is a lot of storage space.

I love the figures
