To add even greater realism to Scalescenes kits, I have produced a range of customised 3D printed objects that can be used with them. The most simple enhancement is to substitute 3D printed chimney pots. The shape is more realistic than rolled paper and cheaper and less fiddly  to install than metal castings.

3D printed windows make fora more three dimensional representation of windows than cut window overlays and are a cost effect alternative to brass etchings. 3d printed doors also provide a degree of additional relief not achievable with printed card. 

 

 

3D printed items are being added to this range all the time. If there is a particular kit that you want items for that is not yet in the range, please leave a comment in the comments section at the bottom of the page.

  1. I need a few more copies of sheets for the Diesel Depot which I purchased last month, how does one get them on the computer to print out ?

    1. Hi

      I think you need to contact Scalescenes about that, but when I use Scalescenes I just print out another copy from the PDF file supplied by them.

  2. Thanks for the offer to send additional windows, but Shapeways sent me an additional set free of charge (before you had made your alteration) Excellent customer service.

    1. I need to add these. There are a few at the Shapeways store already, but most need rescaling from OO and adding to the range.
