Default 1/4 Scale 3D printed Female Superhero DONE!

Greetings one and whoever else is reeading this.
Been playing with me new toy and apart from commish related stuff and what have you, doing a bit for meself.
Full details on my site, link thing below:
http://www.ianlawrencemodels.com/wipshg.html

Abridged version here abouts:

Got a mesh from CGtrader for the princely sum of five George Washington portraits and got to work.

The mesh was by someone whos user name is rikkthegaijin and it's not only good, the parting is along natural lines so the parts breakdown for painting is exteremly good.
Linky to the site page below:

Couple of renders from the site page so one can see what she looks like....



With the optional cape which I will not be using...



Not a named or known to me superhero but like I care

So then, all the parts got hollowed out rather than leave solid as that ups the resin requirement to silly levels and since the resin is far from cheap, it makes sense.
Now scale in mesh terms is a bit irellevant as it can be scaled anyway ya like when it comes to printing.
So taking the largest part and scaling/rotating/faffing about with and off one did go in the hope i'd hit all the correct buttons.



Turns out I may have done just that.





Now there's more than a few bits of support material marks let over but this grey resin sands down really nicely so that was done and I put back the zipper tab i'd managed to break off.



Likewise clean up applied to the rest of the parts.







Then lo, the hallowed primer got slung about and a dry fit test was in order with the parts at hand. The boots were still printing at this time





Base was fiddled about with to make it fit on the build plate and done in tough resin. Reason being that the grey resin is good if a bit brittle so some oomph need to hold this gal up proper.



That's just going to get a polish up and left as is.

So the boots printed, cleaned up and just some minor surface defects to sand once the filler cures but had to have a dry fit dress rehersal.
Well I didn't have to, I just wanted to...








In this setup, she stands 17 & 1/2" tall.

Just the boots to finally finish and then...the paintwork!
Oh yes!!

More later gang
