    Thanks Rob. I think 3d printing is going to change how we acquire figures going forward.

    Yes, its like painting the hundreds of details you sent me. Slow but rewarding.

    Hi Lars, John here good to see the layout progressing. Adrian's stuff has been sold on, I think the bulk of the military stuff has gone to Phoenix Models. Will keep in touch through this site or the NGRM okay.

    Nice looking figures Larry. And amazing that these day you can resize and slice up larger figures to print out in the scale you need.
    A shame that 1/48 is a little used scale, outside of model railroads.
    In 1/35 & 1/72 there are hundreds or thousands of military figures readily available, for both World Wars. And at reasonable prices.

    Well done on working around the problem.

    Larry those are some very nice figures. By the time you paint 250 figures I hope you don't go "cross eyed".Lol.
    I've seen your other figures so given your quality of work then these should look amazing. Have fun.
    Oh yes cool program too.

    There is a different software that can do that. Les Davis has mastered it and can change arms legs and heads. I'm still learning. It is just interesting to see. I did kind of exaggerate that figure. Not sure he would pass muster.

    That's a good variety of troops. Is it possible with that software to select and alter small parts of a figure?(One detail where that could be helpful is reducing the diameter of the helmet on the fourth soldier from the left)

    Here i a sample of the slicer functions. Same figure different heights, weight and mirror Left arm to right arm injury. It should help when doing a large scene.

    Wow, Larry, you're going to be more than halfway to a battalion when you painted them all! How big is the mess tent?
