3D Print Product Info

  1. High-Quality LCD-Based SLA Printed Resin Items at MPM Hobbies

  2. At MPM Hobbies, we offer a diverse range of LCD-based SLA printed resin items that are meticulously crafted using UV-cured resin. These items are shipped unpainted and come with 3D print supports attached to ensure their structural integrity during shipping.
  3. Exceptional Printing Process: To ensure the highest quality, all our items undergo a thorough cleaning process. Each item goes through a 20-minute wash cycle followed by two ten-minute sonic wash cycles. Finally, it undergoes a 2-to-8-minute curing process. This meticulous process guarantees that you receive a clean and well-prepared item ready for your creative touch.
  4. Painting and Finishing Recommendations: Our items can be easily primed with acrylic, lacquer, or enamel type paints. It is recommended to lightly sand and/or prime any horizontal striations that may be present due to the printing process. When removing the supports, it is advisable to start from the tip down and begin with the supports connected to small and fragile details. For attaching the item to your model or filling any imperfections, we recommend using CA (cyanoacrylate) adhesive.
  5. Handle with Care: Please note that some features of our items may be brittle or extremely delicate, requiring careful handling to prevent breakage. We advise that our products are not intended for small children due to the choking hazard and should only be purchased by experienced modelers who can appreciate and handle the fine details and delicate nature of these items.
  6. Accurate Representation and Configuration: Please be aware that the 3D print support configurations may differ from the ones shown in the product photos, if applicable. The product photos may include CAD rendered files used for printing to highlight intricate details that may not be easily visible in regular photos.
  7. Order Quantity and Hollow Parts: The number of items in your order is determined by multiplying the quantity you selected by the number of items per set, if applicable. Additionally, you may notice small holes on the print, which are necessary for draining any leftover resin from the hollow parts of the item. Simply fill these holes with CA adhesive and sand them for a smooth finish.

    The 1,000 pound armor piercing bomb is a converted 12 inch mortar shell. The modifications included the removal of the base fuze and the incorporation of a tail-base plug which adapted the shell to receive a tail adapter booster, the M110, and a box type fin assembly by means of a coupling extension and fin lock nut. The fin lock nut holds the fin assembly around the bomb body in the same manner as described for the GP bombs, except that the threads to seat the fin lock nut are provided by the coupling extension.

    Attached to the bomb body are two suspension bands which provide the lugs for double suspension. These bands fit around the circumference of the shell and are bolted in place. For dive bombing purposes, the Trunnion Band M3 Al was included in the complete round. The final addition was a type A arming wire assembly .064 inch in diameter for use in the tail fuze. This bomb can be identified by the blunt mild steel pellet on the nose.

    Total length of this bomb is 70.88 inches and the diameter is 12 inches. The case is 2.3 inches thick and weighs 983 pounds.

    The 1,000 pound AP Bomb M52A1 differs from the M52 only in that it has a new adapter booster which has a greater tetryl booster charge.  US Bomb, 1000 lb AP, M52, M52A1 (
