HMS Thrasher and Shark Bundle - Model for small scale printing

HMS Thrasher and Shark Bundle - Model for small scale printing 3D print model

Description

Note: This offer is a bundle consisting out of two models. I only combined them for the thumbnail shot, the models themselves are seperate, they are not scaled equally. The files are named according to the class.

The T and S-class were two classes of submarines built by the Royal Navy prior and during the second world war. Both classes saw extensive service in the war and were the backbone of the submersible fleet.

The T-class was built during the 1930s and replaced an older, aging class. 53 units were built, with four of them serving in the Royal Netherlands Navy. Several groups were built over the years, implementing several design changes and improvements which had been gained. HMS Thrasher was a ship of the second group, being built under the war emergency programme with several changes having been done to the design. Out of the seven ships sent into the Mediterranean, only Thrasher and Trusty returned. Her catch during the war however was slim. 20 sailing vessels and four coasters were written to her name until the end of the war. She was scrapped in 1947.

The S-class was a type of submarine designed for the coastal waters of the European theatre. It became the biggest class of submarines built for the Royal Navy, with 62 units being constructed in 15 years, 50 of them being improved versions which were built during the war. A modified version of the class was built for the Turkish Navy also. HMS Shark saw little service sadly. During a mission near Norway she was heavily damaged and the crew decided to surrender the ship. German minesweepers took her into tow, but had to cut the lines as the crew scuttled the ship. No sunk enemy units were written to the name of the ship. Her loss is mentioned in the song Twelve little S-Boats. Most units served up until the 1960s, where they were then sold to other nations, the biggest buyer being France. The last units was decommissioned in 1972.

Note: This bundle is recommended to be used in the 1/3000 scale. The models itself arent scaled, the scale table is down below.

T-class:

1/4000: 2,1cm or 0.83in (not recommended)

1/3000: 2,8cm or 1.1in

1/2000: 4,2cm or 1.65in

1/1000: 8,4cm or 3.3in

For self calculation: The Thrasher was roughly 84m or 275ft long overall, I dont know how long the portrayed portion itself is.

S-class:

1/4000: 1,6cm or 0.63in (not recommended)

1/3000: 2,1cm or 0.83in

1/2000: 3,2cm or 1.26in

1/1000: 6,4cm or 2.52in

For self calculation: The Shark was roughly 63,6m or 208ft long overall, I dont know how long the portrayed portion itself is.

The model is intended to be used with little supports as possible, yet some are recommended around the barrel of the deck gun. I recommend using a resin printer for this, with supports placed under fragile parts. Up and downscaling might be possible, yet I dont know to what extend.

If you have ideas for more ships to model, feel free to message me.
