I thankfully had both (relatively) warm and dry weather over the weekend and was able to print out a round of Heavy Gears. I resized the various proportions and printed out both the Panda/Grizzly and Hunter XMG as multipiece models. While the former turned out well, the latter had a misprint and needs another round of printing. I was able to assemble the heavy support gear and decided to build it up as a Destroyer Grizzly armed with a heavy bazooka.
On center left is the original versin and on the right is the resized one. While it's not evident from my photography, the detail is crisper than the original and, more importantly, crisper than it appears on screen. It's still not equal to the traditionally cast metal minis from the official line but an improvement over the original. I'm not entirely sure I've gotten the resin settings exactly dialed in and might attempt some test cube prints if I can find something useful.
I have to admit though that I'm not entirely happy with the new proportions as they now appear too thin which is surprising since I only shrunk the model on the XY plane by about 5% according to the statistics. Much like the blog post title hints at, I might need to print out a third with proportions in between to get it just right since I'll be doing a third run regardless for the printer. With that model, I'll also try out a different weapon loadout as well with the traditional panda minigun instead.
