A good Shapways model

I've had mixed experiences with 1/1250 models from Shapeways. Some are good but too fragile. Some are made from the white frosted material which is too fuzzy and not easy to work with. Some have poor detail. But here's one I recommend. This is the U.S. Army Landing Ship Vehicle GENERAL FRANK BESSON,the first of a class of eight LSVs commissioned between 1988-2006, and still in service.
The model is made by Mini and Beyond, which also makes the Philippine verson of the ship, the BACALOD Class.
The model is sturdy with good detail and made in matte translucent plastic, rather than the frosted material. It paints up very easily.
The vehicles do not come with the model. These are mostly from the support vehicle set purchased separately from Snafu.
