Phone Home …

We have a new item in our Shapeways store today. As I commute back and forth to London in my day job (that’s the one that pays the bills, not this one !) one thing I notice through the train window (when I’m not asleep) is the proliferation of mobile phone masts and towers across the countryside. These struck me as ideal subjects for 3D printing, being tricky to produce in traditional metal or resin castings. So I’ve made a couple of different styles, one being a solid tapering pole with three antennae at the top, the other a triangular lattice mast with nine antennae. They’re ideal for modern-era 15mm gaming but also look techy enough for sci-fi layouts – mine will be painted up and added to my Martian Neu Celle township.

The masts are currently sold as a pair, but if anyone wants just one type then let me know and I can add the individual types to the store.
