Amazing! Obviously, thereís improvements that could have been made, but as the first example Iíve seen on a from naught to model printed project, Iím dead impressed!

Thanks itís my first try printing from scratch too. It is basic and the finish is rough necessitated by the timeline. Iím tempted to do a recce version for the next GB and see what improvements I can make. Iíll rebuild the 3D model to incorporate some lessons learned and more detail. With the current surface roughness Iím getting, panel lines are out but Iíll see what can be done.

Definitions are only going to get higher and results smoother.
This is the future.  In a few years we'll wonder how we ever did without 3d printers.

Good job.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Great first attempt. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:. Looking forward to seeing what you can cook up in the future.

I recently bought a large figure and there are no visible lines on it. Top quality and as good as anything else.  I've played with it a little and the resin sands weird but is otherwise fine.

There are several miniature designers such as Lord of the Print and Bestarium that grant individual printers licences for a reasonable cost.  They can then sell on Etsy and others. It's a matter of time before other modelling genres catch up.  It should it easier for garage firms selling esoteric items.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Just think of the thousands of models you can keep in a thumb drive stash!

The  CXP-1001 came out great; the camo, decals and canopy framing looks great.

Mine's grown since I started my last build ... By about 4 kits! :blink:

It's almost like they're breeding, I tell ya! :o

I'd missed seeing the finished effort.  Nice work.

May be worth sending a PM to Lost Cosmonaut for some tips.  Would certainly come out better with his resin printer.  That's not to do your efforts down, but the resin ones can print a lot finer and give better results.  I have Alistair's earlier ABS efforts and the difference in quality between the Miles 52 from then and his newer resin one is like comparing Mach Two kits with 1990s vintage CMK.
