3D print/PLA plastic structures on evil inlet site

Discovered some decent looking/great priced structures on that auction site this evening.  Might have to grab some row homes and 1920's kits

At a glance, they look great! Close-up, I'm not so sure:

I didn’t zoom in on them but was thinking the windows would need reworking. The design on them is really nice though.

Agreed, even if the windows need replacing.

If they were to offer a mirror version of the corner store, I would buy one for use on a diorama that will be used for product photography. The roughness of the windows would be an issue in that situation.

Reach out to the guy who makes them. He's been pretty good to talk to in the past.

Definitely FDM. Looks like he had to compromise a bit between layer height and printing time for buildings that big.
It would take something like an Epax X56 to do it efficiently in resin.

Very nice design work, tho.
