Hi,

I'm thinking about a base for my T-62 build and I'd like something on the base to add a bit of interest. So I researched Soviet era Anti Tank defences and came up with concrete Caltrops....


I've modelled one up in solid works and creates an STL file and printed one off on our 3D printer...



I might use this as a master and cast up a few more....

Cheers

John

Yes possibly I need to think what I might want to cast them in. Also if I want more than one cavity...

Cheers

I would add a thin casting block to the lower arms that attach to a plate then turn upside down and pour the mold that way.

Cheers,

I printed off another couple so I think these might do for the Diorama...
