The Forge (new 1/72 manufacturer)

Posted by ADM on 23 Jan 2023, 00:33

I've discovered on ebay a new manufacturer of scale models and figures here :

https://www.ebay.com/str/forge?_trksid= ... 87.l149086

he's offering some vehicules for the Russian/Ukrainian conflict, those are 3D printing in real hard plastic (not resin) made of 1 part without any need to glue many part (very interesting for wargamers like me) :yeah: :yeah: :yeah: :yeah: :yeah:

I bought some of them and they're beautifully detailled, just waiting to be painted ! (in my already long waiting list...)I just recommend them as they're cheap for this very high level of quality ! I was very surprised by the result ! it's my first 3D printing purchase.

There's also WWII vehicules, and figures for various period of history, in 1:72 scale and some others.

If they are 3d printed, then they are resin.

Here is some photos of what I bought (all in 1/72 scale) and I'm very satisfied with it, Usually, resin tend to break far too easily when coming from a mould, but here this is something close to ABS plastic, very strong, you can't break antenna or thin details, it can be cut, sanded and glued like any plastic of famous manufacturers like Italeri, Revell, Hasegawa, Airfix, Trumpeter and so on. Only the Himars has two part (you can rotate the rocket basket !), the others are entirely one part with stunning level of details.

Nasam system (used to protect the white house from aerial threat and also sent to Ukraine, very efficient, like the Patriot missile (bigger and more expensive against any missile) but mostly for smaller targets like drone, can destroy any plane.

Caesar 155mm heavy gun from France, very accurate artillery

Image

Image



D30 122mm artillery from the soviet time and used by Russia and Ukraine, not very accurate but still powerful

Image

Image



2A36 Giatsint 152mm heavy artillery, also soviet, not accurate but good for massive artillery barrage (need a big supply), used by Russia and Ukraine

Image

Image



A few modern figures, top quality ! no mold line !!!!

Image

Image


Himars guided rocket launcher from the U.S, very efficient, very accurate and the double of the artillery range ! But in some case heavy artillery shell might be prefered, depend of the target.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image



M 777 155mm Howitzer from the U.S, very efficient and very accurate, can easily dominate the soviet models with much less shells to destroy them.

All this will feed one of my future project.
