Model of LCI(s)
The model has been prepared and detailed for 1:100 wargaming. Meaning the railing is a bit stronger to prevent breaking to easy. It is waterline model and not a complete hull design. The Hull would be below water and would not work on a gaming table. The model is based on original drawings.
Test-printed on a Creality Ender-5 FDM in 020mm layer and Anycubic Mono SE 005mm layer. The smaller parts CANNOT be printed in FDM/PLA (I think) so to print the complete model you need both a FDM and a SLA printer. Or if you have an SLA printer you can print the whole model in Resin. You will need to cut and hollow out the hull parts for your printer to handle the Hull. The smaller parts are delicate, but once glued in in place on the model are fine. There are 60 parts in total if I couted correctly :-)
1 Ventilation shaft is a bit shorter compared to the other 14 you need, the smaller shaft needs to be place on the left side of the brigde just in front of the side shield.
The compeleted model is 32 cm long, 6 cm wide and 8cm high (including mast). The hull is prepared with small holes for the deck-components for easy assmebly.
I have added the complete hull, but also cut in 2 parts. I used those cuts for test-printing. But if you have large bed-dimension you could cut the model yourself. When printing the hull on a FDM printer, best to print the hull parts vertical with tree support (Cura slicer). The gangways are a tight fitt I noticed, so you might want to reduce width by 1 mm if you want the gang-ways to be fucntional on the wargaming table or just sand them a bit after printing.
The 20 mm oerlikon gun is NOT included as that is not my model, there are free designs availalbe for the 20 mm Oerlikon. I did add the mount for the 20mm Oerlikon as that is my own design. Please read the 20mm-Oerlikon file for more information.
The Canal Defence Light (CDL) is an option, the CDL was removed from the LCI(s) later in the war.
I also added 2 print-screens of the resin parts I printed for the test-print. All larger parts I printed on a FDM-printer using PLA.
