This model is 3d printed to a high standard in PLA, and includes a short length of copper wire to make the condenser.
This model is not based on any specific real-world item, but is an amalgamation of different designs and stylings.
Stills of this style were common from the late 1800’s through to the mid 20th century. Some are still found in rural areas and used today.
Scale is approximately 1/56, but tending to the larger side.
Hearth is approximately 20mm (7/8″) in diameter. An image is shown with a UK penny for scale.
It is ideal for 28 – 32mm wargaming from Victorian through to WW2.
This means it would not look out of place on an american ‘O’ / 1:48 layout, or in a 1/4″ scale doll’s house setup.
Model is supplied unpainted and unassembled. Some cleanup will be required and some parts are very fine.
Bottles shown on painted example are from the Bootleg Booze kit, available separately.
Cleanup is most easily done with a sharp, new #11 blade.
PLA can be glued with super glue (cyanoacrylate).
PLA is a relatively hard material at room temperature and can be filed and gently sanded with ease.
Solvent can also be brushed on to soften the surface for a smoother finish. Allow this to dry before touching the surface.
Models are under constant revision and improvement and may very slightly vary from pictured.
