French Bearn Class Aircraft Carrier 3D print model
1/1800th scale Bearn Class Aircraft Carrier model. Certain elements not to scale.
The French Bearn class of aircraft carrier was a single ship built by the French, and the only French aircraft carrier until after the war. It was converted from the only surviving hull of the planned Normandie class of battleships. Like most French ships, it saw very little service during the war. It could carry up to forty aircraft and it boasted eight six-inch guns along with a large number of antiaircraft guns and even four torpedo tubes.
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.
Tested with PLA at .08mm layer height with .4mm nozzle.
