Simple one piece model design for smaller scales and tweaked to ensure as compliant as possible with Shapeways across a range of materials and the perfect base on which modellers can add the fine detail flourishes to, depending on your skill level. The model has ‘floored guns’ for the best durability to reduce breakages, and be printable in the material offered. Designed by Philip Warnes and can be used at a larger hex scale with his SeaLion Supremacy
game, or any other naval tabletop game that uses this scale.
If you have family that served on this vessel, why not order a metal miniature to keep as a small family keepsake or gift for someone else whose family served onboard. Or maybe you had family who worked at the yards that built this vessel. Keep your family military history alive.
