Here is a ship from another faction of the miniature battle game, War Rocket. I've already finished two from the Galacteers (the good guys) and another MOI user (Lord of the Rings Junkie) has completed two Zenethian Flying Saucers. This is the first completed Imperial (the bad guys) fighter.









Rendered with Blender



Thanks for looking. I'll update photos when the actual casting arrives.

Pilou mentioned Flash Gordon.

I used to see that in part of our Saturday Matinee picture theatre shows.
We were charged 6 pence entry and a big icecream cone cost 1 penny.

1938/39

And, yes--the space ship is very much of those times.

Hi Phil,

Really lovely model,

Just wondering, what are the rules you have to follow to make a model 3d print friendly ? I know nothing about this process but it's really interresting.
(I would love to print some of my models too :))

The model has to be a solid or else it won't print. You should also not model any part that is less than the printers recommended tolerence. Where I get my stuff done, that minimum is around 1 mm thick. So the nose spike is 1.2 mm diameter and the wings at their thinnest points are greater than 1 mm as well.

Hi Phil,

> The best that I can offer is a 2 inch Pewter, which will be on sale this summer.

Is that 2 inches from tip to tip ? pewter is ok I could polish it to a lustre, keep us in touch.
I was thinking something along the lines of the picture attached :)



Cheers
