Amazonas is an Brazilian Acre class destroyer based on a modified British design with some US equipment. This model represents it with 2x4 21 inch torpedo tubes - which is why this vessel and others of the Acre class with similar torpedo tube configurations are sometimes referred to as the Amazonas class. Constructed during WW2, she was not commissioned until after the war was finished.
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.
