1/400 Scale Royal Navy Cruiser 40ft Lower Boat Booms. Set contains 4 booms: 2 in out position, 1 in stored position (Port) and 1 in stored position (Starboard). See My Shop for 50ft and 20ft lengths for Battleships and Destroyers, available in larger scales (not below 1/400 due to printed limitations).
Some part cleanup will be necessary. The 3D printing process uses a waxy substance to support certain part features during the printing process. Although the parts are cleaned by Shapeways, some waxy residue may remain. It can be safely removed with water and a mild aqueous detergent like "Simple Green" using an old, soft toothbrush, Q-tips or pipe cleaners. Customers report that "Bestine" and "Goo Gone" also work well.During the printing process, liquid resin is cured by ultraviolet light. Microscopic bits of resin may remain uncured.
- Accurately created using the plans in Norman Oughs model book
- Each boom has Spider Bands, Grommits and the Fastening Bracket.
Let your parts sit in direct sunlight for a few hours to fully cure the resin.
Water-based acrylic paints meant for plastics is strongly recommended. Other paints, especially enamels, may not cure on Frosted Detail 3D-printed plastics.
Use dedicated model sprue cutters to remove parts to minimise the risk of damage to parts.
