Download free 3d ork trukk model

If you don’t know yet, I will remind you that I have free models for 3D printing.
This time for the orcs. It’s an orc truck. Not a complete set, but you can easily make walls from scrap metal without using 3D printing (plastic cardboard).

Also, I have to shove this banner below in every post due to the low promotion of my store or my section on the shapeways marketplace:

2020 results at Shapeways

Despite the fact that COVID was not supposed to affect online sales, they fell dramatically.
Absolutely no sales at 6mm, although I had hopes for it due to its low printing cost and easy modeling.
Other historical models are also rarely sold.
The reason is not exactly known, but I think that people simply don’t know about the store existance.
Spare parts for Warhammer are sold normally, so I need to pay attention to these models and improve the range. Especially helmets, heads and hand weapons. I have no personal desire to make shoulder pads and shoulder emblems. Let others do that, for example Pop goes the Monkey already has a wide selection.
Also, I need to do something with the turrets for the tanks. It is possible to make them composite, where the turret is made of cheaper “versalite” material and the cannons and small parts are made of more precise “smooth” materials.
Some models need update due to changes in requirements and the introduction of a minimum printing price (so don’t ask me to make ONE small model, it will cost like 10 or more anyway).
Since I have difficulties with money for living, and the income from Shapeways is small, I still cannot make new test prints of my models there myself (and there is still no delivery to Russia). However, I will try to print some on home printers.
In general, the service works ok and this is good, since there are no alternatives.
I will think about what to do so that hobbyinsts know about my store existance. About how to make the models sell – there is no secret. I need to work on quality, which means on modelling skill.
These are my results. I wish you all the best in the new year and be healthy!

Mark IV tank by Baccus 6mm

Last year, we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the end of the World War 1, the conflict with vague causes and numerous victims. In addition to many other new weaponry, this war was remembered by the first appearance of tanks. The first to create them and massively applied was Britain, with the rhombic tank “Mark I”. It is a clumsy design by modern standards, the main weapons – two 57mm guns in the side sponsons. The improved version was the “Mark IV” model.

And now about the model. The company produces it “Baccus 6mm”, which specializes in miniature on a 6mm scale. They produce a very wide range of time periods and countries. In addition to the figures of soldiers, they began to produce vehicle models. And one of the first vehicle models is the model of “Mark IV male” tank. The test prototype was modeled by me and after revision became available in the Baccus store.

Here are photos of the models I received. As you can see, this is a traditional solder casting technology (usually tin and lead). Detailing turned out better than other 6mm models that I saw. On the model were tiny potholes that disappeared after putty and painting. The rest was without problems.

This model is slightly larger than regular 6mm scale models (1/285). The manufacturer stated that they are 1/240.

If you need exactly 1/285 scale, the same model is available in my Shapeways section.

Different tank models and scales also available.
These model version is 3d printed with photopolymer material.
