A2 Models - 3d printed vehicles in various scales
« on: June 19, 2018, 05:37:31 PM »
This was a new one on me:-

https://www.a2models.nl/index.php?item=1_160-n-models&action=page&group_id=26&lang=nl

Seeing as they are 3D printed in colour, they could be rescaled to 1/148 I expect.

Ready coloured is a plus point. Solid windows is a minus point. The sugary texture may be a bit odd.

As well as the 1/160 cars look at the trucks tab which includes a bonneted Bedford looking to have been copied from the old, old Lego model.

Over-user of brackets and quotation marks.

Wondering how many pedants can dance of the head of a pin.

The Studebaker tanker looks like a copy of the old Dinky tanker from the 50's , this suggests that a lot of them are dinky copies.https://www.a2models.nl/data/articles/images/big/b_1970.jpg

Why don't you contact them and ask for a rescale?

1/160 is fine for my SNCF layout.

Some nice looking models.  But still a dearth of every day current cars (Focus, Astra, Golf (even a Mk 6 if  no one can manage  the current Mk 7), Mondeo etc etc)

^I think producing modern cars is more likely to result in licensing disputes.  That said, they do produce an Audi from 2035.

They do a Reliant Regal !

Surely every layout can justify one of those, especially if based in South London.

That's one way to solve the licensing conundrum - model a design yet to be created! :D
