Why this project?
We need your help to construct all models ready, this takes a lot of time and is also very costly.

Why should I support the project?
Be the first to receive the files. Some files will be downloadable later in the shop but not all. The packages will be more expensive than here, so save them now and save up to 50%.
My project shows ships for the different periods /ages. These can be printed on the scales for the different figure sizes from 6 mm to 30 mm (the larger scales could also require larger print areas).
The models are high quality and highly detailed. You can all models print with ABS or PLA.

and more….

I want a turtle ship that would work with 6mm size figures.

Help me understand the purpose of this.

These files are of little value to someone who does not own a better-than-entry-level 3D printer. Paying a commercial shop to do the printing is very expensive – way more than buying a good-quality resin model.

Also, are you able to guarantee that the files will run correctly? Will they be limited to particular printers or printer brands?

My public library offers 3D printers. I can go in with files in hand, and either print them myself or ask the library to print them (if I'm willing to wait). Seeing how the machines and employees are already paid, all they charge us for is the plastic we use. At $0.05 USD / gram, they aren't in it for any form of profit.

I would assume his files are in STL format. One of his earlier KS's came in this format. It's a current standard, recognized by any 3D printer I've encountered so far.

Are there any renders for some of the larger ships?
Barque, Sloop, or Pinnace, for example?
I, for one, am wary of paying for something I can't look at first, at least in a 3d Render, if not printed.

@ Allen57

have you pics for us:

@ Rawdon & thosmoss

Yes you open the STL on your slicer program with your Printer parameter, and then can go print.

@ Minibeady

we work on the files so fast if possible, we will in next time updates … please follow us and the Project.
We will add a frigatte (from the barque ship with 2 ship decks), but only on the Full Set.

We will add more testprint soon…
