US Essex Class Aircraft Carrier 3D print model

1/1800th scale Essex Class Aircraft Carrier model. Certain elements not to scale.

The Essex class saw a record 24 ships commissioned between 1941 and 1946.

There are four surviving Essex Class Carriers; Yorktown, Intrepid, Hornet, and Lexington. Three of those ships share a name with carriers lost during the war.

During the production of the Essex-class carriers, many minor changes were made. I have included four different models to represent some of these differences.

This model is designed and tested at 1/1800th scale, but up-scaling and down-scaling are possible. Since the model is optimized for 1/1800th scale, it is not ideal to print larger versions due to a lack of detail. The gun barrels and mast have been enlarged.

This is part of my collection of WWII warships, keep an eye out for more to come. If you have a specific request, message me and I'll bump it up my list.

Update 16 Nov 19: Readjusted for better and more accurate detail. Added boats.

Tested with PLA at .1mm layer height with .4mm nozzle.
