1/700 Scale 3D Print SDF-1 Bust

Hi All,

I'm new to the Forum so wanted to Introduce myself as well as post up some images of what I have been working on.

For a number of months I have been working on an SDF-1 for my Robotech Tactics tabletop miniatures. Although it's not the correct scale for tactics (1/285)  in all fairness if I had made it the correct scale it would not have fitted under the roof of my house. So I settled on a 1/700 Scale Bust, as this would give me enough size for playability and still fit on the table.

It took a number of months to 3D model from scratch and a few weeks to print and has been a massive labor of love

Thanks to all for your kind words. It was allot of fun to make, and it still has a little more work to go.

I didn't use any existing models from websites like Thingiverse, however I did download a few of these to use for reference.  I modeled it all from scratch which took about 3 months using every bit of free time I could find. once that stage was completed it took about 3 weeks of non stop printing. My poor 3D printer didn't get a rest, as soon as one part had finished printing It was removed from the print bed and strait on to printing the next part.

I have not shown it in the photos but the roof pieces of the Dedalus and Prometheus are removable, and I am currently working on a small Mech servicing bay to go inside the Dedalus. also I am awaiting an order of Bluetooth stereo speakers that will be installed into the small blue vents on each side of the base, and I need to Print the small blue guns that sit under the main cannons.

I am working on other stuff as well and have just finished a few 1/285 scale Armored VF-1's so I will post some pictures of those up very soon. my plan is to complete all the missing miniatures from the Robotech RPG Tactics table top game.
