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.
Contains: 1:700 scale hull, masts with sails, the bowsprit mast and sails and the mizzen gaff/spanker sail. Does not include the ratlines, flags or rigging string. No supports are usually required on any part of the print.
Photos are of a painted model with earlier prototype sails. The sails are now slightly smaller versions of the ones supplied with the Arrogant and Intrepid-class models.
- 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
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. The masts/sails are printed in two halves and need to be glued together. There may be some sanding/filling required where the halves are joined.
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.
