Now I need one of those. Gosh you guy you all just keep making me jealous of your digital modeling skills.

And BOOM! more waiting for me

Great work

I think you need to name your Stormsurge pattern

e.g KV129 'Cyclone' Stormsurge

Just got done printing!

Looks good so far will post some more when I get it in hand and prime it for a test fit tomorrow!

Holy crap!

Must have item of the 41st Millenium!

How thick will you be making the finished one? I've already painted my 'surges, so it'd be cool if it was thick enough to magnetize. The cock-pit paint job I did wasn't great (I should've primed and finished painting that part before assembling the whole torso).

Did a quick test paint, I will need to do some modifications to make it fit better as right now there are too many gaps.

So glad to see the SMS can still be put on the arms. These 3D arms are the ones for me!

Both arm variants look cool but I prefer broadside arms. I only learning 3d modeling, it's long but rewarding work. Wish I could buy them, but before this I should buy the stormsurge itself XD

Is that a shapeways print? I've never had a piece print with such strange support structure. Which method was used to print that piece?

I bet it is a SLA print from other machines, but not from Shapeways.
They use wax to hold the parts instead of support structures on Frosted. The experimental classic SLA-printed Black HD Acrylic is not in this color and they manually remove the struts before sending the parts.

It's from a Form2 SLA liquid resin printer.

Have you tried their black acrylate? It's only available as a maker material but I'm thinking about trying it out due to its smooth finish and high detail.

I was tempted too, but since they charge raw prices per part, with the fewest possible sprues, leading to a choice of models very reduced (in only one or two parts), and none so far is ready to be printed.
I saw too that they remove the struts and I have mixed feelings about that.
They have also issues with this material (see their material forum) and the price is not set.

If the resolution is the same or the like than Form2 or Ember machines, stepping will be still sligthly visible. And compared to Frosted, I don't see the difference.
See the train pics by 3DBuildr on their forum: https://www.shapeways.com/forum/t/black-high-definition-acrylate.39425/

The canopy for the open cockpit was exactly what I was trying to do as well. Some green stuff and odd piranha parts have come close to that look. But having a printed piece would be ideal! Can't wait to see how the final piece turns out!

Jimsbeanz, these look amazing. Definitely getting some when building my Stormsurge.

Sergeant_Ty, this turned out awesomely. How did you get that buckling look on the crushed Rhino?

You can get that crushed effect by carefully baking the model with a weight (think a hammer, or a large paperweight, or even a hefty rock) which crushes it as the plastic softens. Just don't heat the plastic until it burns.
