Soooo, I’ve mentioned my Ma.K stuff a few times, but here’s a pic of what I’ve worked up in 6mm in 3d for the SAFS Mk1 and Raccoons.
12 poses for the SAFS and 6 for the Raccoon (including some with Panzerfaust). Not sure if I will do SAFmkIII and Raptors yet, we will have to see how these print up. But the Krote, PaK Krote and AFSmkII are done and am almost done with the PKA, Gustav and Konrad. Also have some Sandstalkers and Dollhouse in various stages of completion. Lots more to do! Photos will arrive as they are done.

Can we get these in 3mm, too?
We get slapped around, but we have a good time!12/06/2019 at 08:35 #11620612/06/2019 at 09:02 #116208
These are nice, looks accurate as well.
I want 3mm as well but I doubt the ankle and elbow joints will survive handling.

Would also like to see SDR ones – like Melusine PzKpa. Suits.
Oh yes, will get there eventually. I have scribbled a horrible little set of rules for myself based on the old TCI SF3D boardgames (since those stats are “official”) and I am starting with the shared and early designs first, then will move later into the timeline. So, no Mel or Raptors or SturmKampfers for a while yet.
Oh great, another thing to have to spend my money on. Those are absolutely stunning.
Thanks man! Won’t be able to sell them due to IP (and I do respect Mr Yokoyama very much), so just for personal use (if they even print!).
These are nice, looks accurate as well.
Have tried very hard to keep them as accurate as I can without overdoing it but also making them detail readable. In truth, they (especially the AFS) are way too chunky. The Krote’s legs are waaaay thicker than scale will allow, but no other way to keep them from snapping when you breath on them… The vehicles will be much easier to keep to scale.

Damn shame, but one doesn’t want to infringe on others’ property. My own deep affection for Yokoyama’s work is pretty obvious in my comics.
The old TCI rules are actually pretty good, to be honest – and they point up the idea of a single suit being more than the equal of a tank. Would be interested to see what you do with lesser known units from SF3D, like the Ravin or Y-15 tank.12/06/2019 at 17:58 #116236
You may also find this site useful, if you haven’t seen it already:12/06/2019 at 20:30 #116244
Oh yes, I know that site well. It’s what helped me stat up a lot of units (as it has that nice table as well as the dates when things are introduced!) And it’s great that the rules can be found in a single PDF for both editions.
For the Ravin, Seduce, and Makel I will use some of my DS 6mm stuff (though the Makel will be played by a 4-wheeler I am going to release soon), but the Y-15/PzKw-182 will be the same (new) design with slightly different turrets. Then I can do 2 new turrets to get the Dollhouse R and AA, and use the DHAA turret for the Green Buffalo! (and wouldn’t you know I already have the guns on the Venturian AA tank, so another easy thing down!)
I’m actually kind of excited about doing a Schenkle, I had one in 1/76 at one point but traded it for a power head for a marine aquarium I had at the time. Regerts I do have… It won’t be able to do much as time evolves in the campaign, but it’ll look cool!

I could totally see that working!
The DH is supposed to take the Y-15 hull and widen it for the rocket turret, but that’s a bit too much work for me…
Also, will probably be a real heretic and make my 232 Sandstalker with a symmetrical hull rather than the offset turret.

So here’s an early version of the Krote and Pak Krote with WIP PKA and multi-sides of the AFSmkII. Since this was done I’ve made the AFS a little less chunky, and done a long-barrel version of the PakKrote. The back of the head is totally different for the 2 versions, wish I had taken a shot of that at the time. I”ll get a better image in a week or so when I get back from out of town.
And here are the almost-done SDR bubbleheads. I’m hoping they come out well enough in print to be able to tell the types apart! After the thin base has been added they will end up being about 9mm tall. This puts them in scale with my DS 6mm infantry which will be used as the canon-fodder infantry.
I may change the Konrad a little to have a more projecting canopy like the newest version of the big model.
I know it’s not the original, but it will be easier to tell apart from a Gustav as well as looking more like a stepping stone to the Melusine. Maybe I am going to far for 6mm size? Part of me worries, part of me doesn’t care!

Go the GHQ route, put individual bolts and cables on the models 😀

Some of the upcoming Dieselpunk tanks from Microworld look like they’d suit
Ooo, where can I see those?

I would love to make these as accurate as possible with the hoses and all, but a lot of that stuff doesn’t turn out in print at this scale. If I were going to cast these then I would add all sorts of stuff to the masters, but that’d be adding a pretty big cost (molds and all) to what is supposed to be super cheap! Maybe someday I can get a license and really do it right! (I think it’s funny that a lot of Ma.K modelers call 1/76 “Braille Scale” as compared to the usual 1/20 scale models in the series and I’m over here doing 1/285th!)

They look to me like they could be good Shutoral ground vehicles, superheavy tanks, early war stuff before the Hovers arrived, and some of the service vehicles used as “technicals” by the Mercenaries or the Free Colonies.
And yes, I prefer the earlier, poorly-transliterated form “Shutoral” over “Strahl.” I’m hard core.20/06/2019 at 21:43 #116669

I usually just use SDR to avoid the whole argument (I’ve seen 12 page forum threads that get acidic over all of that!)
Here’s pair of shots of the 2nd Gustav pose I’ve worked up (the first being just a plain old boring standing pose).
Hope to hear soon how the SAFS print as that’ll give me some guidelines as to what poses work and which are to difficult. (I’m sure I have more than a few that are too complex).

Nice Gustav! And yes, people who don’t call it the “Shutoral Demokratische Republik” have every right to be incorrect if they want to be.
And here’s the classic Heinrich standing pose! (Might do classic PKA claws at some point if this prints well)

At the moment i think I am going straight the table. It will truly be determined when the figs are printed, seeing how much detail shows. I doubt that I will need these figures in the numbers to justify casting.

Nice detals on the back. How wide is the base? It looks pretty big.
Tired is enough.
