Frequently Asked Questions


Working with DSR 3D Printed Models

These are unassembled kits and will require moderate modeling skills to build and paint.

What you’ll find in our products are resin parts with the finest detail currently reproducible using desktop stereolithography (SLA) 3D printing technology.

The 3D printed parts have support structures which will be removed before they are sent to customers. Since all items come “rough trim” they will require some minor sanding / filing to remove nibs from the 3D printing process.

The parts behave like resin in terms of filing / sanding and cutting; you will generally find the material easy to work with.

The use of epoxy or CA (“super glue”) adhesives is recommended for attaching parts. PLASTIC MODEL KIT CEMENT WILL NOT WORK ON RESIN!

What Happens When I Order?

Many of our products are printed on demand; we keep very low inventory which helps keep prices low. When your order is placed we will respond with a status on your order and keep you updated every step of the way, from production to shipping. We won’t keep you waiting for long, but we do appreciate your patience.

What About Returns?

We will work with you to ensure that you receive a complete and unbroken product as shown on our product description pages. We want you to be as happy with the product as we have been.

That being said, ALL SALES ARE FINAL. We do not accept returns.

Why Can’t I Order Some of Your Designs?

What you see on this site reflects the interests of those associated with this endeavor. It is our desire to make as much as possible of what we design available to other like-minded modelers at a reasonable price that covers at least some of our costs.

Trademarks, copyrights and licensing issues restrict certain things from being made commercially available, even though we love to share photos of those designs with you here.

We share your frustration when some “awesome stuff” can’t be made available; contact us and let us know what you love and what you might like to see in the future. At some point, perhaps we’ll have agreements that permit us to share additional designs.
