1 48 Flower Class Corvette RC Model Ship

1 48 Flower Class Corvette RC Model Ship 3D print model


Flower Class Corvettes were Royal Navy warships used to protect convoys from German Uboats bringing supplies to support the Allied War effort during the Battle of the Atlantic in WWII. This radio controlled model ship was printed in PLA on a 3D printer with a build volume of 210x186x160mm. Hull line drawings and other details were taken from Anatomy of a Flower Class Corvette-HMS Agassiz. Plan on using 4 to 5 boxes of filament. The hull is about 1.3 meters long and it alone took two boxes and ~200 hours to print. Hull details include 8.8mm prop shaft bore, weld lines, port holes, bilge strakes, scuppers, rudder post with servo mount and a motor mount for a Mabuchi 750 type brushed motor. The mid deck and and engine roof are removable for radio equipment and motor battery access. Scale details include depth charge racks/launchers, dinghys, life rafts, 4 inch gun, 2pdr gun, 20mm guns. All stl files manifold checked and printed. CURA v4.0 project files, compiled gcodes and instructions are also included.

The Aug 8, 2021 re - release contains reworked hull files that will work with other slicing programs like Simplify3D and PrusaSlicer. Cura is still the preferred slicer. People who already purchased the initial May 2019 release should be able to download the Aug 2021 re release for free.

My comment would be rather negative. Model by itself is cool, and have good detailing, but have quite lot of flaws. Like low scale of models export, that 100% sure for hull, because other I did not print yet. I already build 4 3d printed ships, and each of them had better hull connection/alignment system. In this model you only hull sections and frame section that you need to glue in between of hull section. That's big opportunity to fail. And don't even try to slice it with slicer that doesn't have Arachne engine, because this metal sheet imitation on hull will make it look creepy (and force you to spend dozen of hours postprocessing). I understand how many hours was spend to design model, and it has some potential to fix this flaws, but now it doesn't cost full price. P.S. After conversation with author I would change my rating to positive, because he replied and uploaded improved hull and raft files. And hope this will encourage him to improve model further.
