    At least with this, when you print your own and it comes out off scale, there's the ability to type in a correction and get it right, unlike Minigildos and Baby Baham one way or Roid Rage Constitution the other...

    It's not that hard in metric. X meters is X millimeters in 1:1000...

    Is it time to have a sticky thread for 3D Printing?

    Could be. Before Henry I didn't think there were much competition from 3D-printing. Now there's many hulls definitely worth printing. He does wonderful work. I still think there's a lack of masts and sails worth the resin. It almost makes me want to model them myself. It's 30 years since I left CATIA behind an moved from mechanical engineering to software...

    I haven't bothered printing any of the available masts (save for those on a L'Ocean, which were reasonably well modelled). I'm putting off doing the rigging though as I'd want to do it *right* and that is a PITA.

    I'd love some properly proportioned spars and yards - for my tastes as separate (the mast), and (the yards) so a realistic set of sail can be flown, and unused yards can be dropped to their seats, with only set sails (and some of those clewed up) hauled up. (I have some in larger scales though, so this is both needing more detail/better form, and also rewarding a more thorough job on rigging..)

    If you chaps can come up with a realistic guide to Printing I will be happy to stick it for you. it could go into the "How to" forum.

    I think I could write it, but I'm not sure what I would add in that thread. I would definately have forgottn to mention about removing the build plate if it hadn't been asked.

    Definately! Right now I use Sails of Glory masts which aren't the best, but at least they're consistent in my fleet.

    As propotionate you can make them for printing. At least I'd make them tapered. Bulging sails that don't stick to the mast at the lower end for no reason at all (other than possibly for ease of printing).

    I am doing the same Jonas. I am using up my SoG spare masts, but have ordered three Ares Frigates specially to get the masts for your Swedish printed ones. the hulls of those will do for more foundering ships.

    Might be worth getting together with the other printer chaps by PM and see if they are interested in helping to formulate something then Jonas.

    Let me know when they arrive. They set out last week. There should be favorable winds.

    Just wanted to mention that I asked Henry Turner If there will be any more ships of our era coming up.

    The last ship of the Kickstarter, HMS Magnanimie, will be finished in about a week.

    He mentioned that his ACW range (15mm figures) is mostly done. His foray into Napoleonics (6mm figures) will be mostly done during summer. He hope to extend his Gilded Sails 17th century ships and has apparently committed himself to eventually covering the Continental Navy.

    Continental Navy is good news Jonas.
    Pity it is just about the time mine are nearly completed. Still I expect I will be tempted when I see his.

    I’m not personally that attracted to it and there will be a lot of small vessels that will be outside of the scope of Sails of Glory, but I know many of you here are interested.

    I personally would want to see two British second rates, the British large 74 and the Swedish Wasa-class third rate.

    As requested Jonas I can now report that ships docked about an hour ago. They are now residing in the Quarintine dock for 72 hours.
    Many thanks for this present.

    Good to hear, Rob!

    I hope they arrived safely and isn't in need of repairs, but we´ll know that when they leave Quarantine dock.
