Question: What does one do when one wants the VK 90.01 (P), but it’s in lockboxes?

Maybe throw a bunch of money at the game and hope to get it? Well, that’s one way, but I’ll show you what I did.

I looked at some reference pictures, built a replica of it in Blender, and sent it away to get 3D printed in 1/144 scale. Then, I primed it, painted it, varnished it, and put it on my shelf. It might not make noise or roll around like it does in the game, but it’s the next best thing. Anyway, here are the pictures, and sorry for the poor photo quality.


Here it is!

 

Here it is again, but from the side!



And again, but from above.



And here it’s fighting the Chrysler K. I made the Chrysler K myself as well!

 

Here it is destroying the Chrysler K. (HD war footage, ca. 1945)



And finally, here it is with it’s German friends (also 1/144 scale).
BTW, I’m still trying to learn Imgur. If you don’t see the pictures, that’s not good let me know! Anyway, thanks for taking a look!

No. The turret spins around, but other than that, nothing moves.

Props to you for the skill and patience to make a digital version.

 

I have tried some 3D scanning of models from photos or real items without much success. The advertising of these apps’ possibilities to make 3D models don’t live up to real life …

Awesome, my models are cardboard templates and store-bought kits, but it may be time for me to dabble in 3D printing, judging by the impeccable quality of these models, well done!

I’ve tried photogrammetry myself. It didn’t work well. While it might take longer, manually constructing mesh assets is the way to go, at least when 3D printing.

Thank you very much! And if you ever do get into 3D printing, look into Shapeways.com. A MakerBot just won’t work for these tiny little models.

idea: if u could put em in some soil and stuff, take a cool pic, add some filter, you would get a pretty promising ww2-like pic
