Model Creator is an online service that enables you to design your unique and historically accurate soldier scale model by using an advanced web GUI. Your design is then 3D printed and delivered to you so you can create or complete your desired vehicle, vignette, or diorama.
Model Creator is currently in the development stage. Software development is expected to start in November 2021 with first deliveries to clients expected to commence in April/May 2022.
Once the platform is created it will be loaded with different uniforms, weapons, and equipment from various armies from different periods in history. The clients will be able to choose the army and the period first and from there choose the load-out for their model. After that the clients will be able to adjust the posture in which they want their figure to be. Once happy with everything, the clients will order the model, have it delivered to its home address.
There are two parts to model creator - digital and physical. The digital part includes the platform, the designs and the creation of the final model and they will be completely managed by Model Creator. The physical part of printing out the 3D model will be done by a third party.
The short answer is all! The long answer is as always more complicated. We will start with 20th century. After that we plan on adding other periods as well.
In the end the designs that we introduce to Model Creator will depend a lot on you, our fans and future clients.
In parallel to popular demand, we will make a concerted effort to constantly bring to Model Creator less-known armies from different periods. We strongly believe that is one of the clear advantages of the digital modelling, and it is also at the root of our initial idea from which Model Creator was born.
The basic sizes we are aiming at are 1/35, 1/24 and 1/16. We would like to offer as many size categories as possible including tabletop 28mm, 1/72 and 1/48, but we still need to confirm that these small sizes are technically and economically feasible.
The price is not set yet and it will depend on size of the model as well as the material chosen. Having said that, we will try to keep prices in line with similar products making the models available to as many clients as possible.
Model Creator is incorporated in Spain where Drazen lives. However, as an online service Model Creator is truly global.
Our principal focus is on Europe and North America due to logistical reasons (3D print and shipping costs).
You will be able to order models in different parts of the world as well, but in these cases, they might carry higher shipping costs and customs charges.
Thank you, and guess what - we also believe the idea is cool (otherwise we would not be doing it!), and that Model Creator fills a very real gap existing in the market.
Please subscribe and follow us to hear how the development is going, participate in debates, support the crowdfunding campaign if you can and order your own unique scale models once Model Creator goes live!
