printer settings

To make it fast, you can certainly print the models with a layer thickness of 0.3mm. However, the lower the layers, the higher the quality. Also think of sufficient infill. Because here is sure that the top layer of printing is opaque and smooth.

We achieved our best results with the following settings:

Layer 0,2mm, Infill 20%, 50-80mm sec

But everyone knows his own printer s.besten and by trying to get the desired result. Ultimately, it depends on which printer you take. This can be a cheap geetech or an expensive ultimaker. They should all work.

Scaling   The models are designed to work for the 20/22 mm scale. The following scaling I recommend to

• Get 15mm - 73% • Get 28mm - 127% • Get 1: 144 - 50%

§§ Legal   Unfortunately, it is not without a reference to legal. By purchasing the STL file, you have the right to use them to express your building models. You determine the number of required models yourself. The copyright on these models remains with us. Specifically, this means: • The file must not be distributed under any circumstances. • The printed models may not be sold, or impressions or casts made of them. • a modification of the STL files and the transfer of modified file contents is also prohibited.

10mm Trenches & Embankments

10mm Trenches & Embankments

These 10mm trench line models can also be used as 10mm embankments and earthworks.

10mm Trenches in 25mm Divisions
These 10mm-scale embankments are designed as models for marking trench lines in front of figure bases, especially for bases 25mm wide. One ‘division’ is a little over 25mm to be able to accommodate a 25mm-wide base.

The sections are designed to be finished off by having their embankments filled with a modelling compound or paste such as widely available spackle or grout filler.

Crenelated Trench Section T25-10mm-01 front

50mm Position Trench Section T25-10mm-02

50mm Position Trench Section T25-10mm-02 front

50mm Position Trench Section T25-10mm-02 back

Inward Wedge Trench Section T25-10mm-04

Outward Wedge Trench Section T25-10mm-05 front

Inward Corner Trench Section T25-10mm-06

Inward Corner Trench Section T25-10mm-06

Outward Corner Trench Section T25-10mm-07

Outward Corner Trench Section T25-10mm-07

This section can be used as a corner or as a junction of a trench. The model is one division wide.

End Trench Section T25-10mm-08

End Trench Section T25-10mm-08

As end sections these models have only one connecting end. Pack comes with one left and one right end section. The models are half a division wide.

L-Shape End Trench Section T25-10mm-09

L-Shape End Trench Section T25-10mm-09




As end sections these models have only one connecting end. Pack comes with one left and one right end section. The models are half a division wide.



The ‘connects’ – the end shapes where the sections connect – on each section are all the same shape. The outline of the shape follows the level of the ‘ground’ that should be sculpted with modelling paste. If the models are to be used as trenches, the ground level should not be lower than the walls of the trenches at the top of the walls.

Osprey Pre-Order Finland at War, The Continuation & Lapland Wars 1941-45

Osprey Pre-Order Finland at War: The Continuation & Lapland Wars 1941-45

In the aftermath of the Winter War, Finland found itself drawing ever closer to Nazi Germany, eventually joining them in Operation Barbarossa in 1941. What started as a chance to right the wrongs of the Winter War soon descended into years of uneasy trench warfare, followed by a harsh armistice that forced the Finns to take on their erstwhile German allies in Lapland. Featuring never-before-seen photographs and first-hand accounts, this second volume of a two-part study details the high-price Finland had to pay to retain its independence and freedom.

Osprey, The History of the Panzerwaffe Volume 1

Osprey, The History of the Panzerwaffe Volume 1

The Germans transformed armoured warfare from a lumbering and ponderous experiment in World War I into something that could decide the outcome of conflicts. This technical and operational history is the definitive guide to the legendary Panzerwaffe, from its very infancy to the days when it made Europe its garden path at the height of Nazi German power. With rare and revealing combat reports, along with photographs sourced from previously unseen private and archival collections, it uncovers the technical and operational stories of the formidable armoured beasts that formed the backbone of the German war machine - tanks such as the Panzer I, II and 38(t).

A German national, Thomas Anderson is a specialist in German armored fighting vehicles of World War II. He has spent decades researching in archives throughout Germany and the rest of Europe to discover little known facts and never previously published photographs of the might of the Panzerwaffe. A modeler, he regularly contributes to popular modeling and historical magazines across the globe including Military Modelcraft International (UK), Steel Art (Italy), Historia Militar (Spain) and Batailles & Blindes (France) as well as many others.

Osprey, Tiger Tank Available to Pre-Order

Osprey: Tiger Tank Available to Pre-Order

The most famous tank of World War II, the Tiger was a monster of a machine that dominated the battlefields of Europe and beyond. Originally conceived in response to the German Army's experience fighting British tanks in western Europe and North Africa, the Tiger cemented its reputation of near invincibility during the savage battles of the Eastern Front.

This is a complete illustrated guide to one of the world's most famous fighting vehicles, exploring its history, its strengths and weaknesses and its combat performance as it duelled against the best the Allies had to give. Drawing on a wealth of research, detailed illustrations and contemporary photographs, this book reveals how this remarkable tank became an icon of military history.

Marcus Cowper was born in London, UK, and studied medieval history at the universities of Manchester and Birmingham. Having worked for Osprey Publishing as an editor, since 2002 he has been the co-owner of Ilios Publishing, specializing in military history publishing. He is the author of a number of titles, including Fortress 55: Cathar Castles: Fortresses of the Albigensian Crusade 1209–1300, and lives and works in Oxford, UK.

Preserve Appomattox, The Site Of Lee's Surrender

Preserve Appomattox, The Site Of Lee's Surrender

Save 202 acres where the Civil War ended!

Many of you are familiar with the story of Appomattox where Grant and Lee sat down together and began the process of “binding the nation’s wounds” after four years of unprecedented warfare. But before the surrender, there was an intense battle on this same land.

One hundred fifty years later, we have an opportunity to buy three properties - one large tract, and two smaller ones - for a total of 202 acres at the exact place where the soldiers took part in their last battle. I’m asking for your help to raise $50,000 to save 202 acres where these men fired their final shots.

This property will put us one step closer to completing the preservation of Appomattox battle ground. Other charitable foundations have recognized the importance of this land and have made contributions. As part of the purchase price, we will also stabilize the historic Morton House that is situated on the property.

Numerous accounts, both Federal and Confederate, describe the still-intense fighting in this area of the battlefield, on April 9, 1865, even while truce flags were circulating along other portions of the lines.

Please help me save 202 acres at the place where the Civil War ended! »

This land needs to be preserved so future generations can learn about this important period in our nation’s history.

Help us near the complete preservation of the Appomattox battlefield by saving 202 acres today!
