Quinta Studios 3D printed “Decals”?


Recommended Posts

After seeing these on eBay I decided I wanted to see these in person. Going through my stash, I looked for something that I can use them on, at the time, all I had was the 1/32 Tamiya F-16. They have since expanded and I have a few more kits I am going to order these for. 

So, what are they? Strange and hard to classify, after doing a little research, I think I figured them out. they call them 3D printed full color vinyl plastic, they appear to be multicolor printed, but my brain still deducted that they have to use some kind of paint/ink printing, the detail looks to fine, but then other parts appear to solid color all the way through.

They truly are 3D, more so than PE, but not quite like the LooK panels from Eduard. They are not stand alone parts, but need to be applied to the kits plastic. You will have to clean the panel to be applied And paint it before hand. The instructions say you can soak them in water, and they will slide off and stick like a decal, but they recommend that a little glue be used on the edges. They are listed as decals, but they should be treated like PE. They also tell you hat they are pliable and you can bend them easily.


Note, these pics are just the panel, I did not take any pics of the belts or seat pads. Strangely, they look even better in person, the camera does weird things with making them look like they have texture, but they really look realistic and smooth. 

Currently, they have three 1/32 Scale panes, with many in 1/48. I keep checking for new releases daily and I’m waiting for a set for Mig-29, Su-25ub, and Su-27s.

Thanks to remind me, that my Quintas 'decals' for my 1/72 :popo: Mi 24 are still in the mail somewhere, since two month. The reasons have nothing to do with Quinta, it's about regulations here on my island, which conflicted with other products I ordered in the same package, namely Tamiya rattle can primer. When (if) they finally arrive, I will add some pics, because they look very promising on photos.

Cheers Rob

Speaking of the devil, look what the postwoman brought me today. It's the 1/72 Quinta set for my Mil-Mi 24 and the first pic shows the comparison with the Eduard PE. The instruments got some glazing to replicate glass cowering. When I will build the Mi 24, I will may make a built in comparison, because it's a Limited edition Eduard kit with plastic, PE and resin for to helicopters. At first sight the edge goes to Quinta, because they match my favorite turquoise better.



This pic is heavily macroed, there is no raster visible to my unmacroed eye.



You might be able to spot the 3D-charcter on this pic with different levels of height.


Cheers Rob

This is a totally new thing for me... but its does look great... however I always think thatit could be difficult to match the color with the rest of the cockpit and hats why I never used eduard cockpit color PE... But I admit that`s probably my problem!
