1:1200 Aerial Vessels Coming From Highlander Studios
Folks have asked about the progress on 1:1200 aerial vessels but we haven't had a lot to tell you until now. Rod at Highlander Studios just sent me these 3D views of the upcoming Aerial Steam Launch, which will be ready to ship in a couple weeks. This is not a cast model but rather uses the new 3D "printing" process where the miniature is built up layer-by-layer mechanically from a 3D rendering.
The second release will be the Aphid-class gunboat. The 3D master still has a few bits to add, but here's the basic core vehicle.
Considering how small these guys are, I think the detail is going to be pretty good. I'm anxious to see how these turn out as I haven't had any expereince with the 3D "printing" manufacturing process so far, but it's clearly coming on strong.
