Modelu's latest 3D-printed figures from laser-scanned people depict a collection of coal miners.
Modelu has added a collection of coal miners to its figure range. The 3D-printed resin figures originate from laser scans of real actors in costume for true-to-scale details.
Described as coal miners, but suitable for other types of mining, the figures are available in 1:148, 1:87, 1:76, 1:43 and 1:48 scales. Pictured is a set of five unpainted miners in 1:76 scale, with a further two figures not shown also available. The resin takes acrylic and enamel paints readily without a need for primer. The poses, as with other figures in its range are natural, including one miner leaning and another relaxing with his back to a wall, eating a small sandwich.
A variety of clothing and worn accessories can be seen, including lamped helmets. Carving the small lamp away would make the figures appropriate for many forms of industry.
For further details of these new figure additions, current pricing and avilability, visit the Modelu website.
