    Default WWI trucks in 1/144 scale

    Greetings,
    I'm going to launch a few techniques resins WWI,
    specifically a few trucks, a tractors and a tanks
    in 1 / 144 scale. So I want to see if there's interest
    and, possibly, what specifically would you fit .
    I have done few masters and still I launched them even more.
    Attached is my first work of longtime Ford T . I would like to do
    Ford cars in multiple versions ( ambulance , fire brigade, scout ...)
    Other trucks are at a stage before the completion of masters
    be Albion A10 three-ton , Mack Bulldog five-ton ..
    Next I'm going - Minerva armored cars , Austin, Ehrhardt ..
    Also A7V Überlandwagen ...
    Thanks for your contributions to that topic ...

    Snappy little T, it will make a great target no doubt.

    A Crossley Tender would make life a lot easier for the chaps to get into town.

    Great target for aerodrome staffing runs.

    Although, it is a very nice looking truck to be riddling with holes. It would add some nice detail to an airfield scenario, or WoW diorama.

    I'd be interested in a set of vehicles for each side of the war, for just the above reasons.

    Tanks would be nice juicy targets

    If you think that Wayne, have a look at this.

    And for this scenario I took away one of their two M/c. Guns each side, and the forward and rear facing one.
    When I flew the test run there were six M/c. guns firing as the aircraft came in and six as they flew out. Each of these got in one long range and one short range shot, so a total of 36 B cards delivered in one pass.

    No doubt they were those four letter, one syllable ones, Rob.

    Michal if you are going to make 1/144 scale resin models could you consider a generic aircraft tent hanger for those airfield games Thanks.

    Nice models Michal. The line seems to be developing well.

    Were these A7V variants actually made? given how few of the progenitors were, I'd be surprised if they actually entered service (but I've been surprised before).

    Three peaces of Flakpanzer were made.

    I would definitely want an ambulance (family history) and a tender truck to load up with pilots for a flight line diorama! Let me know!

    Did these models ever come to fruition?

    Default

    I was able to find some to print. I don't paint though to they are only so good. I'm not overly fond of them being at 1:144 scale. I know that is the scale of our planes, but the rest of the map, trenches and all, is from high above and a much smaller scale. I think I may print some trucks, tanks and artillery but I've yet to decide on the scale.

    I am considering building a WWI airfield complete with hangers, vehicles and a Mansion or Chateau and am trying to get everything in 144 scale. I also like the idea of smaller pieces for regular play with the ares mats.

    Home 3D printer Ken? Or was it from a place like Shapeways?

  36. #36

    Default

    I have picked up some 6mm - 1/300 scale Shapeways generic light trucks, several A7Vs, British MkIVs, and some Renault 17s for use as ground targets. I think the 1/285/300/6mm stuff looks about right as targets - and there is a huge availability of WW2 stuff in that scale for ground targets...

    Although I must admit I have toyed with picking up a few 1/144 scale bits and bobs to paint up...

    All the best,
    Matt

    Micheal you are a talented builder, sir! If you ever are interested in making some WW1 Ambulances on commission, Ill take one in 1/144! Thank you! Keep up the awesome work my friend.

    Not very much, if I had to guess I'd say under $1 USD, closer to 40 cents or so. But sometimes I waste a fair amount in testing new things or settings.

    P.S. of course this doesn't count any time either.
