Revell 1/24 Land Rover Series III testshots

Superb Indeed. They've done their homework as this was the highest selling specification. Now if they include a RHD option.....

Interesting that they call these "test shots" and yet say that they are "slightly larger" than the 1/24 scale of the forthcoming kit. I always assumed "test shots" were pulled from the actual tooling, to check and fine tune if necessary to ensure it all moulds correctly and comes out of the tooling cleanly...

 

best,

Ah, the beauty of 3D modeling!

 

They specifically cited the reasons:

What you may have noticed is the scale: Our test shot is slightly larger than the finished model. In this way, it is easier for our experts to locate difficult areas and to more accurately identify the license-relevant details.

Even if this doesn't find all errors an actual injection molded test shot would find, this would allow errors to be identified and corrected before actually committing to that more expensive hard tooling.

 

I have various vector drawings--2D models if you will--that I've used to cut masks and even some plastic parts. I can cut the pattern at any size.
