Awhile back I did a 3D printed version of the Draisine MBV-2 with the older T-28 turrets which is now available in 1/35th scale from Hobby Boss. Once the Hobby Boss model came out I sort of lost interest in it and threw my MBV-2 on the storage shelf for awhile. Recently, I decided to try and finish it.
When I first printed the model parts, they came out sort of "rough" and I almost threw them away since they were really not of the higher quality I had come to expect from my printer. Nothing fit together quite right and surfaces were defective. It turned out that the printer simply needed a good cleaning after a year of heavy use. In the end, I treated my inferior parts a bit like an old vacuform kit and tried to save them and shape the thing into an acceptable model.
Please find attached a few pictures of my MBV-2 project. It's still a WIP but starting to come together.

What is the thickness of the walls of superstructure?
Now MBV is accessible in both: 35th and 72nd (UM company).
