3D Printed Parts for Scale Models
In 2016 I approached 3D design and started producing 3D printed parts for my scale models to make up for what I couldn’t find in the market.
I then decided to make my products available to the scale modellers community.
In my shop page at Shapeways, under the name Priamide Models, you can find mainly 1/35 and 1/72 scale parts for modern US military vehicles, but also some 1/12, 1/16, 1/18, 1/48 and 1/87 scale items.
Therefore, if you are looking for that part that will complete your model and make it outstanding, have a look at my products. 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.
Most of the items I design belongs to the following categories:
- M-ATV 3D printed add-ons and conversion parts, including a M1245 Special Forces (SOCOM) conversion set (see this thread in KitMaker forums).
US Special Forces GMV and Dumvee 3D printed add-ons and conversion parts.
A special mention goes to the conversion set designed to upgrade the Academy M1151 into an M1165 Army GMV (see also this thread in Armorama.com).
- Stryker 3D printed add-ons and conversion parts, including DVH-A1 conversion parts and a Special Forces (SOCOM) Stryker IFV conversion set (see my post in the Stryker Campaign thread in KitMaker forums).
- Communication and electronic equipments 3D printed, like radios, antennas, Duke Crew, Blue Force Tracker (BFT), TacFLIR
I have also designed other miscellanea parts, for example Stinger cases, Javelin launchers, parts for Leopard tank.
You can see my complete production in Priamide Models page at Shapeways.
I’m also proud to share an excerpt of the review of my Harris Antenna Mounts published in Armorama.com (full review at this link).
Introduction: This will be a review of Priamide Models Harris Antenna Mount which is a set of 4, 3d printed antennas used on HMMWVs and MRAPs which mount Harris radios. There are two antenna bases (mounts) which have a large, accordion section. These mounts are a tall mount bent at a 45 degree bend and a shorter mount bent at a 60 degree bend. There are also two mounts which have an adjustable, lockable folding section which are folded to 60 degrees and to 90 degrees. The 60 degree mount is taller than the 90 degree mount.
Conclusion: These antenna mounts are a welcome offering by Ettore Galasso and his Priamide Models. This set should be welcome by all who model any vehicle in use today in any of the varied theaters of conflict around the world. Highly recommended.
Pros: Great subject, fantastic detail, adaptable to many vehicles.
