When you refer to the .50cal machinegun comparison article, you can see that we need new options for highly detailed and in-scale machineguns for our Shermans. The advent of 3D-printed has opened up the door to a totally new manufacturing method that in theory, can result in a product far superior to what can be achieved through classic resin casting or molding in plastic. Of course, those older forms of production all depended on the quality of the master parts being reproduced, but even the finest examples can't really hope to reach the fineness of details possible in 3D-printing. I mean, look at the photo on the left below; these guns actually have the trigger paddle! These are fantastic guns. The resin used is relatively soft, so care must be taken when removing them from the printing frame and cleaning up the small nubs left behind. There are still the fine artifacts of the printing process to contend with, but they can mostly be ignored on parts with the right angles that these have.
