Modélisme et impression 3D - Scale Models and 3D printing


Our models, except the Fullcolor models, have to be painted. The painting of our models is done without difficulty even by a novice modeler. It takes as much time as mounting a plastic injected kit for a more satisfactory result.

Some models are monobloc, so there is only painting to do. Other models arrive in several parts, mainly to facilitate painting.
This material is suitable for acrylic paint which hangs very well on it and is therefore painted like the Fritted polyamide models (see this tutorial). The glue also holds on very well.
Some parts may be oily (solvent residue), so degreasing with soap and water is strongly recommended.
It is better to paint the parts before mounting it. In this example the model has not been painted.

Excluding painting equipment, you need stripper pliers, nail files, water-resistant sandpaper and glue (here cyanoacrylate gel).

The plastic of the models is very resistant (a fall on the ground will not break it) but if you force too much, it will break rather than bend. Be careful on the thinnest parts.

To remove burrs and traces of supports, use nail files or sandpaper. Wet sandpaper will prevent dusting.

In this view, the different parts have been separated.

The windows are glued into slots provided for this purpose inside the model. All that remains is to put the transparent plastics to represent the windows and other decorations.

The interior of the model is partitioned for reasons of manufacturing techniques.

The shutters and the awning are then simply glued.
