Title: 1/12 lifeboat crew

Just a quick work in progress picture, these figures are 3D printed and in my eyes they are the best I have seen, they are from Drydock 3D supplies (Facebook)

Yes John outstanding quality, give them a good wash in soapy water and a quick primer and they are good for painting. Just need give this one a coat of satin varnish..

Nothing wrong with 3-D printing and very impressed how clean the prints are!  One thing, not being a Facebook user I find them listed from Google on a foreign site I can't tell if it's Asian or Russian text or something like that, is there a UK site for them please?

Hi Russell, PM received.  Thanks but is there a way to see on UK Facebook from the start?  When I search your info before it brings up foreign links, mostly in cryllic text!

Thanks Bud I will look into this. I don't think I have enough "points" to do a trader advert just yet.

Been so busy with Work and getting the website ready I've not had time for even my own boats :)
