These are 3D printed figures and when it arrived I was rather surprised to see that it still had the 3D printing support structures in place. There were even supports for the figure’s nose !
It was easy to remove these, but my second surprise was that there were a couple of ‘holes’ in the figure. You might get ‘air bubbles’ in injection moulded or cast objects, but I hadn’t expected them in something from a 3D printer. Again not a problem, a little model filler and they’d disappeared.
The figure isn’t quite a crisp and detailed as some whitemetal figures, but it is a nice model and much lighter.
Painting the figure was a pleasure. I gave him some blue overalls, a rather flashy light blue shirt and a dusting of black weathering power to make him look suitably dirty.
I’m pleased with the result. He’ll look good in a loco.
