The original design (Wagon or Wagon1) was VERY loosely based on a style used by Germany but has been simplified for me to design it and then for 3D printing at the 1:100 scale. The second wagon is closer to the look and dimensions of one of the larger field wagons using by the Germans during WW2. It is still, of course, adjusted for the small scale.
The figures shown are from Essex Miniatures (horses) and Peter Peg (drivers). The horses are a perfect fit for the model but the figures need some tuning!
See the Misc Notes in the Print Setting section before trying to print this model!
The STLs for this thing are stored at 1:10 scale and will need to be shrunk in your slicer by a factor of 10 to yield the 1:100 model of the title! You can also reduce it by different factors to yield models of differing scales. I use Sketchup as a design tool and find that some of the plugins that I use do not like operating on tiny models so I work at a larger scale. It is easier then to shrink it for printing in my slicer than to do so in Sketchup. If I were more clever I would author a script in Sketch that scales on export. Hmmmm.
I have added two STLs, one for each version of the wagon, that have been scaled to 1:100 and contain the key parts for each wagon. On the Field Wagon this does not include the base, the tools, or the cargo treatments.
Supports are required for two parts of this model. If you use a slicer that can do manual supports it would be recommended to do so for those two areas (the rear axel assembly where it marries with the front axel assembly and the drivers footrest on the body).
Printed with a 0.25mm nozzle. May print satisfactorily with a 0.3mm nozzle but results likely to be spotty above that size.
Painting the Field Wagon
I really wish that I could claim to have built the diorama that is featured on this page but, alas, I can most assuredly not!
This diorama was built by Bill, the Scenic Doctor, who is a "Yoda" of model building as near as I can tell. He has been modeling for 40 years and has a whole wealth of experience in all types of models. He also casts in resins for models that are not available otherwise. Buildings, trees and scenery are what he does best as for a few years he worked with the biggest modeling company in Scotland.
Please enjoy the photos above and take a look at some of Bill's other work on his website.
Here are Bill's tips on the painting of the model shown above:
Just a spray with army painter desert yellow then a black wash.
An old brush for the light green...very simple.
Horses are white and light brown.
Black wash, then same colour dry brushed.
