3D Printed Parts
I recently approached 3D design and printing to make parts or add-ons for my models that I couldn’t find in the market.
I then decided to make my products available to the scale modellers community.
In my shop at Shapeways, named Priamide Models, you can find 1/35 scale parts and accessories for modern US military vehicles.
If you are looking for that part that will complete your model and make it outstanding, have a look at my products, and in case you don’t find what you are looking for, ask me; maybe it is already in my pipeline or I could make it for you.
Here are the parts available at the moment:
- Harris Antenna Mount
The kit includes four Harris antenna mounts in different shapes and sizes: with and without accordion, short and long pole.
It’s the perfect companion to complete your M-ATV’s and recent version HMMWV’s.
- CREW Duke Cage for M-ATV
It is a CREW Duke cage as seen in the cargo bed of M-ATV’s.
This is a part you cannot find in any M-ATV or HMMWV kit.
- CREW Duke Counter IED System
The AN/VLQ-12 Counter Remote Controlled Improvised Explosive Device (RCIED) Electronic Warfare (CREW) Duke system is a vehicle-mounted, lightweight system that neutralizes RCIED threats and gives U.S. troops a tactical advantage across the full spectrum of operations.
It is widely used in HMMWV’s and MRAP’s.
This set includes the three components of the Duke V3 version:
– primary unit (the biggest box), known as CREW Duke V2
– secondary unit (the large and slim box) that feature advanced electronic warfare subsystems
– control unit (the smallest box)
- M2 mount for guntruck HMMWV
This set replicates a special M2 machine gun tripod mount used on HMMWV gun trucks during early OIF (Operation Iraqi Freedom).
The M2 machine gun is not included, but you can use this mount with whatever M2 you can find in HMMWV kits (Academy or Tamiya for example) or in after-market kits (Live Resin for example).
The elevation bar has to be cut in lenght to adapt to the setting of your choice.
You can find in-action pictures and more info about this mount in this forum thread at Armorama.com http://armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=165971&page=1
