So I've finally jumped from the screen and into reality with the 3D printing of the Hildebrandt Battle Frame from Frame Crash.
Suffice to say, it came out spectacular.
It's also opened a whole new window of ideas. The details of the 7 inch statue came in nice and crisp with only very minor and fixable problems (sword handle too thin). While it may not be capable of being painted very easy (lot of tight nooks and crannies... my painter friends assure me that that will be no issue for painting, though), the details are all there and I can't help just gawk at it for hours on end.
Considering how well the details came out on the model, I definitely see printing out more mecha from Frame Crash at the same scale. Goal is one printed model a month, all in different poses, until I have a shelf of models I can display with on some epic diorama or something.
If I get into the flow of things, I might actually start something along the lines of modeling your mecha and getting it printed... all for a nominal fee of... probably expensive! D:
Anyways, for now I'm going to take it slow, work on finishing a few other models and see how prepping goes for printing. I'm definitely glad the 7-inch model turned out as detailed as it did, as it makes me far less wary of getting similar models printed out.
