After the 2013 Spur1 meeting in Sinsheim, I reported on July 7, 2013 about Wilgro models that were offered at Wyko-Echtdampf. Among the heavily patinated models were also two worth seeing half-assembled kits of the class 86.

According to the comments, the models created by Mr. Groß in this condition were suitable to enrich the respective scene as rusty models on the siding or on a scrap yard.

The following report by Hans and Walter Ziegler shows that there is another way and that the two torsos do not have to eke out an existence as lifeless scrap.

Figures have been a trend item in 1 gauge since 3D printing has reached a quality where the fine layers are hardly or not at all visible. This type of production allows all the freedom in the poses, since there is no need to pay attention to undercuts and the position in steel molds. Large series are no longer to be expected in this size anyway.

But 3D-printed figures are generally offered unpainted. If you want to paint them yourself, you have to overcome a few hurdles and, above all, you need the right tools for the precision work on the mini-humans. Part 1 of a series on painting gauge 1 figures.
