Late last year I had the opportunity to take one of my vehicle concepts and adapt it for production as a 28mm wargaming miniature. These should be shipping soon from Secret Weapon Miniatures. Link ==> [link]

3d prototyping is evolving rapidly. It's like the same sort of thing that happened with printing technology in the late 1990s, only with the ability to create real objects.

brb, downloading a car. :P

Love the variety of weapons offered.  Can make an armored cavalry troop with various fire support.  Need to find one.

Just thought I'd let you know, seeing as how I've stumbled across your gallery here on dA, that I bought one of these from Justin last year. I know he's re-mastered the mould since then for a more logical assembly, but I was still really impressed - just a shame it's so expensive to import them here in the UK, or I'd order another three! It's only part-painted and waiting for me to get around to finishing it, but I'll post a pic up here and send you a link when it's done.

Thank you for your support. :) I'd love to see how it looks when you've got it painted up.

Wow! Those would make great proxies for the wheeled vehicles in my AT-43 Oni army. :D (I'm sure I could find plenty of RPG uses as well.) I love the DETAILS!

Nice, the light cover looks like German WWII design.

I might have to pick a few up when I build my Arbites army.

This would be a great model to "count as" a Leman Russ or a Hellhound. The apparent lack of doors would prevent it from being used as a Chimera, though.

It does have infantry doors on the rear, kind of like the BMP. It might not be an ideal stand-in for the Chimera, but you can do some interesting crossbreeding with the Leman Russ, as the turret pin is the same size.

Thanks

I have seen a couple of these painted up. I must say, this is probably my favourite vehicle design in production right now.

you can buy the kit the turret or the hull

That's so inspiring, seeing your 3D work being made into a real creation.

Do you get any profit from it when someone buys the kit? Will you be doing more?

For this first kit, we did a deal where all the money was upfront, just to take a conservative line and see how things did. I'll be working on at least one more model for them, albeit a smaller one.

Ah I see. Well, I am still going to purchase one in support, and maybe will attempt to paint it ... lol.
