    Creating a Shako Mold

    This entry is only for historical reasons, to show how the above described path has developed Didn't read that for a very long time and even can't remember these very first attempts and fails but at the end now I'm able to upload a software generated pack of a subset of the below shown items in a 15x pack to Shapeways and you will be able to order that after some minutes of processing and configuring the shop parameters for buying (name, section, materials, pricing). Not to mention is the design quality which has developed from some basic shapes to a full 3d blender design bench. Woody64
  10. Still I'm missing apropriate shakos for my armies. Therefore I did some attempts which I would like to share, since doing that allone would not be successfull. LDraw parts: British-Shako: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/woody64/...o/2545-brit.dat French-Shako: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/woody64/...2545-french.dat Steps to Do: - Import to 3d CAD Program -- for the british shako already successfull done: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/woody64/...rit-blender.png http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/woody64/...o/2545-brit.stl - Control Dimensions (damned ldu/mm, I haven't taken a look so far) - Find Molder (http://www.protomold.com/ ?) - Get Proposal - Let the Molder create the Tool - Prototypes - Produce 1000 shakos :-) seems to be very easy Andreas

    Very nice scene and interesting usage of the Roman helmet. Understand your interest for the Cuirassier helemets especially for the Napoleonic times. Below you can find my version of one of these helmets:

    [MOC] 1790 -1815 Vignettes

    today a vignette showing items one century later(1914-1918) German Uhlans WW1 In 1914, lances were still being carried by regiments in the British, Indian, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Japanese, Ottoman, Belgian, Argentinian, and Russian armies, amongst others. Almost all German cavalry (hussars, dragoons and cuirassiers as well as uhlans) retained a steel lance as their primary weapon. http:// en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lancer https://www.flickr.com/photos/34336019@N07/49738352757/in/dateposted-public/

    [MOC] 1790 -1815 Vignettes

    Hungarian Insurrection In the Kingdom of Hungary, the insurrection (nemesi felkelés) was the term used to describe the aristocratic contingent to protect the borders and the king. Theoretically it was abolished in the revolution of 1848/49. However, the last insurrection took place in 1741 to defend the lands of Queen Maria Theresa against the invasion of Frederick II of Prussia. The term was still used during the coalition wars. Thus, a considerable number of Insurrection troops were involved in the Battle of Raab in 1809. https://www.flickr.com/photos/34336019@N07/49715416206/in/dateposted-public/ Lancers of the Guard In 1807 Napoleon authorized the raising of a guard regiment of Polish light horse. His main object in so doing was probably political, a first token of his promise to establish an independent Polish state. Whatever his motives,he obtained the services of some of the finest soldiers who ever served under him. Qualifications for enlistment were high. Applicants must be landowners or the sons of landowners. Some financial backing was certainly necessary, as those accepted had to provide their own uniforms, saddlery and horses. The men came mainly from Murat's Polish 'Honor Guard' and volunteers. Majority of them were nobles and were better educated than rank and file of the French Guard who - in big part - could only read and write. This situation however was only in the beginning, later on their ranks were filled up with veterans selected from every Polish cavalry regiment. https://www.flickr.com/photos/34336019@N07/49157341557/in/dateposted-public/ Remarkable and very new in this picture is the new custom saddle ...

    Minifigs Customization

    I have printed some of my torsos at Steindrucker. Also it's possible to buy a Laser printer and use white Ghost printing toner Woody64
  22. I'm owning a lot of customs there and you can go with: - smooth fine detail plastic - white/black premium versatile plastic - black/grey PA12 - white processed versatile plastic all work with headgear and mostly also for weapons. For smaller details like weapons maybe "smooth fine detail" is the best choice. The 3d printing process still show different results in surface (results are best in the list above in the sequence given) and also in some results caused by smoothing. Nevertheless the results so far were reproducable (some 1000 prints) Woody64
