Hi everyone,
I haven't posted anything on this forum for a long time.
The reasons are various, less motivation for the 1/6, less interesting things to present because I specialize in the French army and the manufacturers don't do much for me.
And then I was more on Facebook.

Two years ago, I discovered 3D printing and wanted to test printing with filament.
It's good and I'm happy, but the quality for small parts didn't satisfy me.
Earlier this year, I discovered 3D printing with resin and there is happiness.
Of course, you have to learn a bit about 3d modeling, but it's amazing what you can do.

Many of the files I use have been downloaded from the internet (free or paid)
but you have to modify them to print them. Others are creations of me.

Here are some examples of my achievements

FAMAS G2


FRENCH HELMET M51


FAMAS VALORISE


MAS 49




FRENCH RADIO PP08 (copy of the US ANPRC 6 model)


Chamelot delvigne 1873 - French revolver used during WWI


Lefaucheux M1958 - French revolver used during the war of 1870 and WWI

They look great! I wish I saw this before I purchased my filament 3D printer (Ender 3 Pro). Can I ask what printer these are from?

Hi, great progress! I have very limited experience in downloading 3d files from the Internet, manipulating them and having them printed at Shapeways. But learning to model in 3d is frustrating. Can you please share what programs or tutorials you used to learn? Thank you.

These are amazing! I'm inspired. That sounds affordable, I'd just have to buck up and learn something new. BTW, I would never have guessed English isn't your first language - except maybe because from your interest in the French army!

Thank you :p

That looks great! I'd really like to get into 3-D printing but I don't know which machine to get.
It's like cars, each person likes their own model.
I chose Eleego because the user community is very large, feedback on material and service is very good and the price is reasonable.

The only regret is that Eleego is evolving very quickly, too fast. :think
I bought my printer in February, it was the most recent model. But since then there is a faster model that has just been released,
and in November, they're going to come up with a faster and bigger model.

It's frustrating

The good thing is: the models that were $300-350- 6 months ago, seem to be selling for $200-250 now.

for the past 3 years or so I watched a few videos from Tested and the ones I liked were the resin printers
Cause with resin printers, you can print the smaller details for miniature pieces.
Resin printers use liquid resin and lasers

I never bothered in buying a Resin 3D printer cause their costs were high and gave up

But after seeing this thread and prices are about $300 and dropping for newer models
I will think about buying a resin printer early next year.

thanks for sharing your works

Well, I did it. I bought a Creality LD-002R Resin 3D Printer ($200 from Amazon). I'm excited to see what this thing can do.

The LD-002R printer is a good place to start.
My advice is to take the time to learn more about the technique and the adjustments.

Currently I am preparing a file to print an AN / PRC 10 radio.
It is a radio that was used a lot by the French army during the Indochina War and the Algerian War.

I still need to make some changes
