I painted the body and wheels today plus a couple of powder kegs I had laying around since the 0 scale days. They was intended as wine barrels, but works as good for kegs in this scale. The frame was also not quite to my liking when I compared to the real

Last weekend when I first printed the body for the supply wagon I noticed something strange, it did not look right beside the figures I had printed so far. When I did measure one of the figures I found out it was in fact 70mm (1:25), not 90mm (1:20) as...

Reached not only cute level with this 54mm (1:29 scale) version today, but also practical size limit. Any smaller and prints don´t get well and details to small to see and paint. Good that I did this, the 120mm (1:15) version is to big and this is to ...

When I entered the cave this afternoon I was met with a giant shouting from the 1-16 boys! They were very angry that they hadn´t got any colours, when the 1-20 guy got his. They claimed they were printed first after all and should have been paint...

Napoleon was 169 cm long, or in mm  1.690. Since wargame figures are calculated from toe to eye, we need to take of about 10cm from the length to compensate for the upper half of the head. 1.590 / 28 makes a 28mm figure 1:56 scale ...
