Banana flavour!

Sorry...

Seem to be suffering from the same sweet-syndrome as the last one, with a complete lack of any hard edges?

maybe add a wash, or paint one up to show the details? just need a bit of contrast to make them out properly ;)

Did you not get better prints done for the casting?
Oh yeah I can make that....

Finally got some test prints in! One thing I can say is that I'm kinda digging Shapeways' FXD material, it really handles the detail rather well. The only downside is that there are still printlines and the material would need extensive cleaning. Subtle Discord wrote some interesting stuff on that.

Another 'downside' of the material is that it's see-through, making it rather tricky to photograph.

Test printed some BFG scaled ordnance:

The clear material certainly is a bitch to photograph! I like the designs though! Hit them with some grey primer and then take some more shots ;)

Wow, these latest Frigates are looking great! Miles ahead of your early work and the level of detail one would expect ;)

I'm jealous. Your work is looking pretty damn good and you've pulled well ahead of me on both skill and endurance. Good show!
