Naked Scale Model

There have been some requests to see the most recent FMTV truck model during the actual build.

Sometimes it is more interesting to see a model before it has been hit with a coat of primer and final paint application. In this case it shows the variety of materials that were used to create this military truck:

  • 3D printed material (we call resin)
  • Styrene
  • Brass
  • Aluminum
  • Tooling Board
  • Acrylic

All of the separate components you see in the photographs were screwed to the truck bed, and then the truck itself was mounted to the base using hardware. This assured a sturdy enough model for repeat trade show use.
