|A lot of unconventional designs.|
Using 3D design to create a rocket launcher for a 1/35 scale model kit.
Fifteen years ago I purchased several plastic model kits with a book collection about Armoured Fighting Vehicles. Today I have the space to work on these models that come without box from various brands.
When working in a T-34/76 soviet tank (kit from Zvezda) I noticed that I had lost a piece of the gun mantlet. So I decided to change the turret completely.
I studied several concepts to mount anti-tank, assault or anti-aircraft guns in place of the turret, but none came to fruition.
Finally I decided to create a rocket launcher, albeit appear ahead of his time, too advanced for a wartime soviet device (always I was thinking in a German design on a captured T-34/76 chassis as for 1944-45).
However, the round cast steel turret had a definite post-war era Soviet style. so I decided to paint it in the same Russian green paint as the 1950's Soviet armor.
Then I rented the services of a 3D printer to create the pieces. Finish was poor, and some details are lost. I quickly assembled, primed and painted the pieces to see the results. Finishing and weathering will come after much needed work.
If you need something like this, and you count with a 3D printer service, you can contact me!
