poiter50 - Thanks for the tip on OTP - looks like they sell printed models using the same files that Hendrik likes so well...and saves me the expense of a 3D printer (not that I could have figured out how to use it if I had one LOL).
They are indeed a licensed printer of tigerace his wonderfull models.
However, please note those prints are FDM printed in PLA while the ones i posted here are SLA printed resin models.


Now obviously i don't know how well they have dialed in their machines, but in general SLA offers a far superior finish to FDM as in it will have less print lines.

You could try to find a local makerspace or library that has a 3D printer just like poiter said.
3D printing in general isn't that expensive anymore, and for 150-200€♥ you could easily get into it for FDM printing (usable for scenery and less detailed models).
I myself have shelled out for an anycubic photon (SLA) and an FDM printer so i'd have the best of both worlds.
That being said, i love my photon the most. it's also very dangerous since now i'm looking at other rulesets and periods too since i can easily print out an entire highly detailed force (i'm looking at you Kiss me hardy).
It's currently also still on sale for about 250€

Thanks, Hendrik!

Saw your Bison on the FB page and it is clearly a better quality print than the ones currently available. Will look into options to have someone print it. Have spent far more than the cost of the printers buying resin models - but am a little leery of the learning curve to buy the printer and start doing it myself - I am a world class dinosaur and technophobe. How easy is it to learn to print to the standard your photos show and maintain the equipment?

it's really plug and play as far as i'm concerned. the main thing is getting the right settings, and correctly leveling your build plate.
I find it a LOT easier than FDM printing. sure, i still get fails from time to time, but there's a great facebook community and any issues are usually related to the user either not leveling correctly (easy to redo)or wrong exposure settings (even easier to change)

This is a pretty interesting unboxing video that shows you how easy it is to get into.

I'd say welcome to the hobby called 3D printing! ;)
