Can also be used for the British Pompée-class, 2 74 gun ships of the line based on the French Pompée Temeraire-class ship. British names were HMS Superb and HMS Achilles.
The ship hull and shape was built as accurately as possible to various 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.
- 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 3rd rate size and will be usable with other published 3rd rate ships. Does not include the ratlines, flags or rigging string. No supports are usually required on any part of an fdm print. Supports are required when resin printing
- The painted model is a resin 3d print which includes deck planking, cannons and gunports but without the latest detailed stern windows or hull paint lines.
- The grey coated model is an fdm 3d print of an earlier versin of the model. This version of the model now also contains deck planking, gunports and slightly simplified cannons.
For assembly, please see the photos on the Intrepid-class 64 gun model (on this site) showing the FDM bowsprit parts and mizzen (rear sail parts) being assembled.

Great model. I printed it on the Form3 and it came out as well as any commercially available resin model.
