Ship built names were: HMS Barfleur, HMS Prince George, HMS Princess Royal, HMS Formidable

The ship hull and shape was built as accurately as possible to admiralty plans. The hull under the waterline was then removed and the upper parts were simplified in detail at the bow, thickened in the stern, windows exaggerated, and deck detail exaggerated. All this to be able to print out at 1:700 (and larger) scales. Smaller scales are possible but would likely require a resin printer for the best results.
Photos are of the Version 2 resin printed model base coated in grey. The last two pictures show an older Version 1 Barfleur model next to the Temeraire-class model.
- Hull (includes deck planking, cannons and gunports):
- 1 x 1:700 scale high height hull
- 1 x 1:700 scale low height hull
- 1 x 1:700 scale high hull for fdm printing
- 1 x 1:700 scale low hull for fdm printing
- Combined masts/sails without lower mast section and with a hole for a rod/wire – for resin printing
- Split masts/sails with lower mast section – for fdm printing
- Ships Anchor
The sails are of a generic 2nd rate size and will be usable with other published 2nd rate ships. Does not include the ratlines, flags or rigging string. No supports are usually required on any part of an fdm print. Supports will be required for the sails when resin printing. For assembly, please see the photos on the Intrepid-class 64 gun model (on this site) showing the bowsprit parts and mizzen (rear sail parts) being assembled.
Note, due to the modular way I am building the masts/sails then you may need to enable ‘Union overlapping volumes’ in Cura or the equivalent setting in your slicer when printing them.
