1/16 Bushmaster PMV CAD/3D print scratchbuild

Thought I’d move this build across to the new forum.

Quick update on my own design & 3D printed “kit” of the Australian Bushmaster protected mobility vehicle that I’m building in 1/16. Longest single print thus far has been over ten days (221 hours).

This is great! About how much is 3-D printed and how much is scratch built?

Thanks! You can get a printer for as little as $200, with CAD software available as freeware. So, easy to get started.

Some more progress.

Very nice. Did you ever finish your M113 with T50 turret?

G’day Mal,

No - the running gear was a problem. Now that I can CAD & print things like swing arms, I’ll be able to finish it.

Hi Greg
Cool. I aspire to that, got Fusion 360, but need to learn how to use it. Keep finding other things to do.

Managed to close up the hull & get some painting done.

Nice. Presumably static, rather than RC?

G’day Mal, yep 100% static. Apart from a whole different problem set, design-wise, RC never caught my interest.

Hi Greg
Cool, most often detailed interiors indicate static, but there are exceptions, one such - M-113A1 Medium Recon Vehicle - Australian Army 1980s - build - RC Tank Warfare -
