This listing is for a scale model of the Naval Miniature Pictured.
Perfect for Wargaming, Axis and Allies: War at Sea, Victory at Sea, or dioramas of naval actions. Our Model ships are printed in either .12 mm layer heights for FDM and .05 mm layer for resin to maximize the details. These items are usually printed in Gray. However, we offer a wide variety of colors please specify your color preference in the personalization text box. Some colors may require a few extra days to process.
We examine all of our items and will only send you the pieces that meet our standards. All items are unpainted (unless otherwise stated) and will usually require some basic cleanup. This can be done with a hobby knife and/or high grit sandpaper. Due to the nature of FDM printing, which creates objects by melting plastic and applying it in layers on top of each other, there is layer lines. These are not really noticeable unless you examine the item in close detail. Additionally, through the cleanup, application of primer and paint, can in most cases hide these lines.
Resin Printing does not melt plastic like FDM printing. Instead a photo curable liquid resin is placed in a vat and an LCD screen /LED array at specific wavelength (405 NM), which solidifies the liquid resin in that spot. The build plate then moves up to the next layer height (.05 mm or 5 microns in this case) and the process repeats. Each reaction attaches the 'cured' resin in the previous layer. After the printing is completed, we wash the excess resin off in an alcohol bath, and then place the model on a turntable with curing lights for several hours to harden the material to its final form. Resin printing offers a much finer level of detail/resolution at a higher material and consumable cost.
These are printed in Polylactic Acid (PLA), which is different than most thermoplastic polymers in that it is derived from renewable resources like corn starch or sugar cane.
These are printed on demand for you. Orders will be printed and shipped in the order that they are received. If there are any delays, we will communicate with you the expected delivery date.
