Here we go. Started to Print the parts for the 1:6 scale Gunner Stationn, but after I modified them so they would fit on the print bed. This is going to be massive. I'm not to worried about the print lines. I will be using the PLA XTC from Smooth-On to clean up the layer lines. Normally I don't but this model is so big it should affect the details.


The Wheel: Hollowed so I can run LED lights in it.

Just for fun I picture the Hot Toys figure by it:

and one last comparison to the 1:12 scale version, and you can see all three sizes. the Grey one underneath in the printer is 1:18 scale.

That's freakin' awesome! Can't wait to see the finished one. So just out of curiosity how much does it cost to print something that big?

Would you consider doing any in 1:18 scale? If so, I might be interested in one down the road.

Great work!

Postimage lost their domain. If you use .cc instead of .org, you can see your pictures. You will have to change all your existing links though.

Hasbro just needs to buy this off of you, they'd still probably be saving money instead of tooling it themselves.

A big WOW! It is build very tight, as if it is a real working device. The lighting is a brilliant extra.
Have you considered building a housing for the cannon?

Thank you Yoda36. Dont know now if I have the room for that. I started a new build to be more screen accurate. I’ll post when I’m done. But for now here is a quick of the newer one in pieces. Sorry for the bad audio.
