How to make WW2 Soldier Figure with 3D Pen

WW2 Soldier Figure 3D Pen

For this 3d pen project project we are going to use PCL only with a variety of filament colors. In addition we will need a soldering iron with a temperature regulator at 100c celcius degrees for smoothing the surface or a jet lighter and a piece of flat metal.

The particular 3D Pens are well known to use low temperature for safety reasons and they use ONLY PCL 1.75mm filament exclusively. You can find them available to buy here.


We will make the body by using the 3d pen template wrapping some paper tape around the aluminum wire and cover it with filament. It easier to smooth the plastic by using a jet lighter and press it with an exacto knife, tweezers or other piece of metal. Alternatively we can use the soldering iron at lowest temperature possible (100c preferably) with quick moves to avoid any unwanted results.

With the the help of the drawing template we will draw the rest of the parts (backpack, hands, head, helm, boots, weapon, ammo pouch) and fuse them on the body. We can easily carve the details on plastic with a nail or a sharp object while its warm.

As we finished with the making and assembling all the parts we start priming all parts with acrylic gesso for the paint to adhere better. It is necessary to leave it at least 10 hours to dry prior painting it and sand it with 240 grit sandpaper for smooth surface.

We start painting our figure with acrylic paint using an airbrush or a paintbrush. For better results it is recommended to use modelling paint such as (Vallejo, Gunze Sangyo, Tamiya etc.) instead of craft paint for better visual results and to avoid peeling.

A coat of satin varnish or mat is also a good choice to protect the color and give the figure a shiny look.

Last but not least, the final step is to make a stand base for the figure, by covering a piece of wood with some snow modelling paste and attach the leg of the figure with some superglue. We can also add some tiny details such as grass tufts made from 3d pen filament.
