The idea behind this shop is to sell the models that I have designed and produced on Google Sketchup. The models are mainly 1/600 scale and 1/700 scale and are miniatures that no one else, as yet, makes. The 1/600 scale models are designed to fit in with 1/600th scale Oddzial Osmy, PT Dockyard, Skytrex Coastal Forces, etc. I aim to fill the gaps in various ranges of the above manufacturers and try not to duplicate. So far I have produced mostly Vietnam & WW 2 era craft namely Riverine and amphibious landing craft/ ships. There are larger ships such as the Benewah class APB and an ARL also available. I am willing to take commissions but my time to design and upload to Shapeways is restricted as I work full time and this is my hobby, and not a business, so patience will be needed. Please see my blog for more information, pictures and future posts - Mini and Beyond **Please note that due to the changes being made by Shapeways in regards to material thickness parameters, all ships that have masts will have them removed in the event of problems during printing. I cannot make the masts thicker as they will look like tree trunks so i'd rather remove them and let you fit your own.
Future Vietnam Era models being planned are:US Coast Guard WPB based on USCGC Point LSD based on USS Casa Grande class (for the PACV hovercraft)All will be dependent on availability of photo's and drawings and will be in 1/600 and 1/700 with 1/1200 being planned afterwards.
Additional future models in 1/700, 1/600 and 1/1200 will be Falklands Conflict era:Round Table Class Landing Ship Logistics (LSL),Type 22 HMS Broadsword, Type 42 HMS Sheffield, Type 82 HMS Bristol, HMS Invincible (if i can get it printable in 1/600)
I will also be looking at the STUFT ships i.e. Norland, Europic Ferry, Baltic Ferry, Atlantic Conveyor, et al
Size may be a constraint bit I have a cunning Baldric plan to cut the material down to make the larger models cheaper (if the plan works)
