Amarillo Design Bureau is selling versions of their Star Trek miniatures via Shapeways. Two 1:3788 Scale Klingon C8B Dreadnoughts made with the cheapest and the most expensive available material are shown in these photos.
Cheapest: White Strong & Flexible Polished
Most expensive: Black Hi-Def Acrylate
Two early ADB models are shown for comparison. One is copyright 1979, the other is earlier, but the last date digit is not legible (c197?).
Many layers of paint and clear coat were applied to the White Strong & Flexible Polished model, and sanding was tried. The result was still not smooth, so decals were not attempted. Decals on the Black Hi-Def Acrylate are from Mark’s Models and Toys.
It appears that Hi-Def Acrylate is no longer an option for Amarillo Design Bureau models.
