Put me down for 1/60 set.

Do you ship to Australia?

Yes. I have shipped there.

Here's the guy fixing whatever it is... the wheel or something. The smaller version is to remind that these are meant to be seen at a way smaller size.

I don't really like selling straight from Shapeways and like to avoid it if I can. If all their printout was smooth and easy to paint I'd do it that way. Also it's a lot less expensive if there were recasted. The WSFP is cheap but I don't recommend it for figures this small. The plan is to clean them up make sure everything is smooth and sell them as resin for people to paint. If there's any clean up by people it'll be minor, like flash or pin holes.

There maybe a few I'll put up on Shapeways, some that are impossible to recast because of the pose. Or if there's not enough interest I'll just put it up on my store, but it'll cost more.

Cool. Resin cast is almost always better than the stair-stepping ridled RP builds... too much clean up, and if you're not intimatly familiar with the piece you're liable to cut or sand off something you shouldn't; besides, you being the modeler, you'll do a much better job at the prep stage prior to molding which will result in a much better final product.

I'll keep an eye on this and may be very interested in both the 1/60 and 1/48 sets.

Will you also be doing a maintenance crew?

Is that gangnam style on ground crew 19? :huh:

Here's one I did years ago with wax... sad thing with hand sculpted figures is that you're stuck with one scale.

En garde!

Absolutely not.

I've used both with good results.
