Early War Shapeways

Its been a long time since I've posted here. Since September most of my painting has centred around some lovely 1/144 3d printed models from Shapeways. the latest batch was finished today, and I've posted some photos for your enjoyment.

I've become a big fan of these Shapeways. the detail is fine and having them come in one piece means no fiddling around with spars and wings and things. Some of them are quite fragile, the Farman F.40 in particular. This one was broken during the printing process - Shapeways printed a replacement and also included the damaged one for free. Some reconstructive surgery was needed to the tail booms and the model has a slight skew as a result, but its fine for wargaming.
