“Firefighter” of the FDNY
My Firefighter build, which features many 3D-printed parts, was featured on ModelWarship.com’s 11/22/2013 “What’s New” page. Now in their Gallery at: http://www.modelshipgallery.com/gallery/misc/rescue/Firefighter-87-pm/index.htm
The entire cabin and many details are parts of my design, printed at Shapeways.
I continue to provide a running “in box” review of DeAgostini’s “Sovereign of the Seas” parts work kit at “A Yankee Builds DeAgostini’s Sovereign of the Seas”. We are up to Part 60 (of 135!) with this November 2013 review. The mass of material is impressive, as the kit is loaded with white metal cast details. Information on obtaining the kit at: http://www.model-space.com/gb/ships/hms-sovereign-of-the-seas/
Sample installment of DeAgostini’s Sovereign of the Seas kit.
My latest completion, a 1:9 scale model of a 29 foot Mirage, the S-793 “Wolverine”. The full size boat has recently been restored by her owners, but was originally campaigned in the 80’s by Pete Smith, of the well known Smith Brothers Offshore Racing Team.
The unorthodox scale comes from building the model on an available fiberglass R/C hull of about 39″ length. The entire cockpit and coaming were built up to match the subject. Almost all details, from the instrument bezels to the bolster and the outdrives, were made with 3D Printing technology. Markings are a combination of custom printed waterslide decals and multi-layer cut vinyl.
