Well here is one of my entries into the Rumors of war Group build. It is the Real Grade 1/144 scale model of the MS-06s Zaku II, or Char's Zaku:



And here is the first video:

Sorry the video is a bit on the shaky side....

Definitely not 3D printing. Printed ABS isn't super detailed as it uses an extruding technology. All the DIY printers use this technique. You can do crazy detailing with SLS or DLP which uses powder or liquid and lasers. Those materials are usually metals or resins. You can easily tell if the parts are 3D printed plastic because if you look at it from one side you'll see all the layers of plastic.



3D printing is great for small volumes as well. But the cost to do a huge run would be enormous. Much more than a high volume injection mould.

I have heard from a few of my subscribers that they are using a two part process. The first inject the inner parts, then put them on a holding frame and then inject the outer parts. It still has to be a unique process because you are forming plastic over plastic, and if you are not careful, the outer layer will melt the inner layer.
