All tanks in my collection have standardised turret ring sizes, such that all tanks in the same weight class have interchangeable turrets. Because of this, all tanks of the same weight class will fit on the same painting fixture. These fixtures also keep paint off the mating surfaces of the turret and hull, so that they will still fit, regardless of how thick the paint ends up being. I go into more detail in a Hive post about the design process.

Kaja's Models and Machinations
Kaja’s Models and Machinations specialises in models of experimental Soviet heavy tanks produced from 1939-1957, primarily in 1:285 (6-mm), 1:220 (Z-gauge) and 1:160 (N-gauge) scales. A high-detail model of the KV-1 suitable for 1:100 (15mm) is also available and others may be available on request. Other models include ancient war galleys, tall ships from the Golden Age of Sail, and even steamships from World War I. I am currently experimenting with some of my original designs as well, and I hope to create an entire collection of original miniatures at least as impressive as my historical collection. If you would like to see what sort of contraptions I like to dream up, please check out the Nine Empires tag on Hive.
All files I sell have either been printed on my own high-resolution resin machine, or on someone else’s FDM machine. If you are interested in purchasing physical models, check out my website:
If you are new to resin 3D printing, I feature one of my own designs in a post where I discuss some considerations that need to be made when printing miniature tanks:
Some of my models also have video links in their product descriptions showing post-processing, so that you have an idea of what’s involved.
