One of Gambody’s users has printed and painted the MWO 3D model and was pleased to share the astonishing result with all our marketplace’s visitors. According to Alexei Bruton, the printing process of MechWarrior 3D model was effortless, no problems occurring during it. The parts printed accurately and smoothly, with no outer shell defects. It took more than 1.5 weeks to print all the parts and roughly 4 hours to assemble it.
Alexei went as far as painting a realistically looking BattleMech 3D model, using different shades of acrylic dye. Applying different painting techniques, Alexei managed to give the model a degree of battle wear and rusted appearance. His Catapult 3D model features various degree of battle damage, such as chipping and impact holes from different caliber guns.
The final result is a stunning, realistic miniature of a battle warrior.
