[Resource] 3D Printed Conversions

Post#1 » Oct 24 2016 11:48

Not always are conversions best made by combining existing parts. Sometimes crafty Fio must create the perfect customization from scratch.



This article serves as a resource to provide easy access to fan-made 3D printed conversions developed by ATT members.
Each post represents one particular model or group of models used to add a personal touch to one of many Tau units.
Please only post models using the template below, posts which are not resource-related will be deleted.
