1/48 3D printed Nebelwefer 41

As Bugs Bunny would say, "Must have been that left turn at Albuquerque"

 

My 3D printer has set idle for a long time and as I was cleaning up I though I'd do a little project.  I had downloaded a set of files for a neat little Nebelwafer 41 from Thingiverse but never got round to printing it out.  How hard could it be?  Many hours later I had two sets of decent parts.  

 

Assembly and basic paint took a coupe of hours.

And today I did the rest of the paint and put it on an old spare base.

Nice, quick and fun project. ( The best kind in my book)  I hope you like it.

That's a very nice representation of the famous Nebelwerfer.

Great paint job!

3D printing from internet plans is still new to me, could you please explain, from how many parts this model was assembled?

Hi Roman.  I'm happy you liked the little piece.

The design broke the Nebelwerfer into the following bits;
6x chassis pieces, upper and lower and two chassis rails, left and right plus two wheels.
The barrel assembly, front support and sight are seperate as is a tiny curved elevation rack.

All told I spent the better part of a full day ( Say, 12 hours) to add supports/slice and print enough parts for two models.  I'm sure that it could have been done more efficiently but I do things slowly and in a manner I know will work. ( Most of the time😃)

IHTH.

Dan
