These models are Studio scale (meaning the scale of the original model used in the movies) , or1/18th to 1/24 scale which is a scale also used in large scale model making. We mainly focus on sci- fi models from TV and Cinema these are all taken from 3d CGI models and then converted into STL files for printing. These are not resin molds or cast plastic there are 1st generation prototyping models taken from a 3d file and printed out . 3d printing : The model we make are printed out on cr-10 printers with a primary layer height of 0.1000 mm this is fine detailed setting for large scale printing with in practical time frame (parts can take weeks to print out ) . With 3d printing they are no resin parts / no copy of a copy / no warping or sink hole issues, however Even at this quality you still have visible lines with this PLA plastic. ABS is much finer but not stable and prone to warp and cracking during the process of printing and not good for production of large models like these. This is basically a plastic model with a honey comb structure between the layers as its builds up; it can tolerate temp; to 150 degrees before any warping might occur. It takes roughly 2 to 4 months to complete one model depending on the size of the model and this includes the fine sanding and painting time; (this time frame is based on availability of the printers at the time of making your ordering it is first come bases ). I have currently 10 printers printing models 24 /7 and I am adding more printers all the time, I offer most models in 3 different category’s Basic, finished kit or complete models Please select TAB prices for BASIC & KITS /Finished BASIC This is only for expert model makers who are familiar with 3D printed items and it requires clean up. As these filament plastic printers leave fine lines layers on everything you have to sand all the layers smooth with different grades of wet’n day paper very similar to car body work . The model you see in the photos are after hours of sanding to make it completely smooth ' if you choose this category you will receive this model with all the flash or plastic support still attached! and you will have to assemble all the parts with superglue and baking powder. No decals or stands are included in this package ONLY . KIT’ This is a completely sanded smooth and per primed model, like a model kit” parts ready to assemble. This package does include a stand or base and decals with instruction (should this be required). Finished or Complete models or Display models This is a complete model finished and painted with lighting (if lighting was shown ) with decals and stand as seen in the photos of the completed models that have been ordered . Depending on the size of the model (some these models will be over 4feet long) Some; sub-assembly and slight touch up of paint at the joint areas may be required As many of these are unique studio size models and large models they require extra protection . The built finished models will be shipped in wooden grates for total protection which will be included in the shipping costs SHIPPING is done by getting a basic quote from the shipping company once the model is compete and packaged to get a total shipping price at which time payment would be made for shipping . Payment process payment can be made with western union PayPal or bank transfer. These are made to order models so payment must be made before any work is started.
