The edge of Hurricane Florence is upon us here at Model Monkey! We are mindful and concerned for those who are badly affected by the storm. Here, so far, the effects have been comparatively mild. Effects are expected to worsen throughout the day. As of this writing, the lights are on here, the internet is up, and backup generator is on standby.

All orders received for products printed in gray resin were shipped as of yesterday.

Here are a few more photos of products printed in gray resin, late Mk.37 Directors in 1/350 scale and superstructure products for Revell's classic USS Arizona kits.

Thanks, Steve, for your PM regarding the Portland/Indianapolis forward fire control tower. I'll try cutting down the "walkaround" on your 1/350 1942 Portland and adding the necessities shown prominently in Steve Wiper's Warship Pictorial 10, pp11 and 48. Best wishes, David

For Bismarck and Tirpitz fans, here are 1/350 scale 38 cm turrets with blast bags and open rangefinder hood shutters with rangefinders within. Turrets with open rangefinder hoods can also be printed in 1/400 scale.

Thanks Bob!

Regarding the splinter shielding thickness, the thickness depends on a number of factors. Is some circumstances, but not all, 0.3 mm is achievable. Features that are too thin can suffer from malformation. The cleaning process can also be hard on thin features, dissolving them.

Hi David,

PM coming your way.

Steve, Portland emerged from her MAR-MAY43 Mare Island NY refit with a new forward fire control tower. Indianapolis duplicated that forward fire control tower in her MAR-MAY44 Mare Island NY refit. With that new fire control tower, both Portland and Indianapolis can be accurately built in the beautiful Ms 32/7D camouflage pattern. What's the chance that you can do this change in 1/350 gray resin? Thank you.

I'm jealous. I wish I had the cash. Shapeways' quality is going downhill fast. Good for you making the technology work for you!

How thin can you make the splinter shielding?

These look great! Did you buy a printer or do you have another 3rd party printing source?

Hi Sean,

I'm afraid not. 1/700 is just too small for anchors, even for this technology. But as soon as the tech is ready...

As always, thanks for your patronage and encouragement!
Post Posted: Sun Sep 09, 2018 7:00 pm
  Post subject:  Re: New material, gray resin, now available from Model Monke  Reply with quote
With the new material and process, is it possible to bring the anchors down to 1:700? Looking at the molded-in anchors on an Italeri Forrestal right now, and they're rather lacking...

Steve, will you be doing 1/350 North Carolina funnels in gray resin? I'll need two sets. Thank you.

goods received and everything went well !

this gray resin seems better than frosted ultra to my eyes ! (smoother surface) and seems to be truly less expensive.
