Hello fellow modelers,
I just happened to stumble across this site and really liked what I found. I have been modeling since around 1966 or there abouts. I have always had a model of some sort in the works, static models, R/C tanks and airplanes, figures, I enjoy trying everything (sometimes with not such a good ending).
I have recently got into designing R/C tanks in 1/16 on a CAD program and then having them 3D printed by Shape Ways, its one way to have a unique model that nobody else has.
I look forward to taking some time and checking out all the cool stuff that members are building here,

Larry B

Thank you for the welcome, the Char 2C is my own design that was a combination of 3D printing, G10 sheet & fiberglass made in molds. It is 1/16 R/C and designed to do the IR battles with the 1/16 tank guys at the Danville Va tank museum.

Very Nice .
I assume you scaled up the Meng example ?
Well don't stop there - I must see the interior components now ! :cool:

You are correct about the Meng 1/35 model being used for patterns, I really don't have a good photo of the insides but I'll post a photo of the IBU2 board that I used to drive the model. I used the DKLM "slow" gearbox to run the model which works out pretty good.

Here is another scratch built model, I did this one from a set of Disney drawings. I built this before my 3D printing efforts.

Welcome! Nice work. I love what 3D printing brings to the scale modeling world.
