Since my ham-handed slicer tends to lay on the supports pretty thick, I modified this
design to print treads separately without support. I also never liked the way the
various Tigers printed the rear, so I stripped it off so it can be printed detail up.
Printed this way, the rear is much cleaner and takes paint and washes much better.
The hulls included will need support due to the overhang for the tread. As a further
experiment, I also broke the hull down to print in two pieces so no support is needed;
that's in the "2 piece" zip file.
I still suggest support for the rear plate as it will help the tailpipes print. After removing the support, I reinforced the tailpipe with thin super glue to make them a little sturdier. Also use support for the barrel and glue a piece of filament in the hole to attach it to the hull. Note the barrels can be drilled if you have a pin vise, it looks great!
I included an open hatch hull and a tiny printible hatch for commander versions. The
commander in the original doesn't print for me so I used a figure I had laying around.
