Ebay: Hawker P.1214 X-Wing 48th 3d printed
« on: October 21, 2018, 05:25:15 am »
Found this on ebay a few days back:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HAWKER-P1214-1-48-MODEL-KIT-12-x-10/163310941923?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160927153312%26meid%3Db10964f89f3d4befa1417c70364fa7c5%26pid%3D100013%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D142981069870%26itm%3D163310941923&_trksid=p2047675.c100013.m1986





Now it looks rough and it's really just a desktop model, but AFAIK, it's the only one in the scale and with some work, you could get something out of it.

I've used this guy before - it's where I got my Blake's 7 Scorpio from - and service isn't too bad although I've a feeling they're printed to order.

Now that would look good sitting on the shelf!

I've got his 1/48 Hawker P-1154 model.
Looks about the same as this picture. Not a bad model but will need a lot of work to get a decent model out of it.
It needs a LOT of smoothing as the 3D printing is not very high res, so there are ridges all over the model.

I'm not sure how I will tackle that as the print is done is a rather hard Nylon plastic that doesn't sand very well. I've been thinking about covering the whole model in a thin layer of putty and then sanding it carefully. Not sure how that will turn out though.....

That's what I've been doing with my low-res printed parts: Cover them in filler primer, then sand flat. That works well as long as there's no fine surface detail to preserve.

Harro,

What primer do you use for this? Mr. Surfacer?

Very much so. I expected to see it a fair bit higher.
