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.

    This bomb consists of a cylindrical, metal container with a hemispherical nose and tail piece welded at either end. Burster containers are located at either end of the bomb, and, in the tail, to one side of the burster tube, is a filling hole closed with a threaded plug. A tail locating ring is welded around the tail portion of the bomb body.

    Although provision is made in the bomb for alternate nose or tail fuzing, the nose pocket is always closed with a plug, and only the tail pocket is employed.

    The Tail No. 31 Mk I consists of a sheet-metal tail cone to which are riveted four vanes supported by a cylindrical metal strut. The tail is attached to the bomb by four spring clips which engage the tail locating ring on the after end of the bomb body. Inside the tail cone, supporting the lower end of the reach rod, is located a diaphragm with four large holes to allow air passage.

    A single suspension lug is provided for carrying in British planes, and two additional lugs for U. S. suspension are 180' removed.

    This is a special purpose bomb designed primarily for low-level bombing operations. Its use will be restricted to special missions.

    It is recommended that personnel engaged in disposal operations on this bomb be equipped with rubber boots and gloves, and that these be kept damp. All equipment and protective clothing which may have come into contact with the liquid phosphorus should be washed thoroughly immediately after use.

    The contents of this bomb will ignite immediately with a highly incendiary effect upon contact with the air. Following the bursting of this bomb, a dense smoke screen will be emitted for at least two hours.  Bomb, 500 lb IB, Mk 1 (
