Re: Yup that is the beauty of 3D Printing- One Piece -5 Star Detail
A few weeks ago I ordered the quad 40mm guns. Just waiting for them to arrive.
They should be fantastic.
If you like the 1/700 twin 40mm, you love the open and shielded 40mm quad mounts. Just paint and install. To Bunker Studio credit they annihilated all other 1/700 40mm twin and quad offerings in simplicity and detail.
I am not so rah-rah on their 20mm offerings because of where they place their many, many attachment points. One stressed cut and you lose the detail if not the piece. You have to cut from under the piece and as far away from the detail the attachment point is adhered to. If you get the weapon free you then have to cut away the dangling attachment points. Ridiculous amount of work for 1 20mm gun. I e-mailed them but no response.
I am investigating another type of cutter called Excelta 7170E wire cutters which are long nose so I can get further beneath 3D printed parts. The Fujiya cutters give a nice smooth sharp cut but are short nose.
Wow 1/700 in one piece!
Sorry... corrected subject:
Twin 40MM Bofors guns
I just received the Twin 40MM Bofors guns from Bunker Studios (3D Printed). They are, of course, tiny but really well detailed:
