    I am working on a Gallipoli campaign in 6mm. Baccus figures form the majority of both British & Dominion forces, as well as the Ottoman army. More British 18 pounder field guns are needed. I decided to design and print some. Here are the early results: a 1/300 scale version on the left; and a second print scaled up 120% to the same size as the Baccus guns:

    Thank you. The quality of resin 3D printing is improving all the time. The models were printed with 0.025 mm layers, which means there is no visible stepping. With these smaller-end scales, the main consideration is increasing the width of barrels, recuperators, shields, etc disproportionately compared to the true scaled-down measurements. It takes a bit of practice to get these differences sorted but the advantage of 3D printing is that I can quickly organise another print run to test changes.
