Japanese Shokaku Class Aircraft Carrier 3D print model
1/1800th scale Shokaku Class Aircraft Carrier model. Certain elements not to scale.
The Shokaku class were a pair of aircraft carriers built for the Imperial Japanese Navy shortly before the attack on Pearl Harbor. They participated in nearly every major naval battle during the war, except for the Battle of Midway. At the time of their commissioning, they were considered the best carriers in the world. They carried 72 aircraft plus some spares along with eight five-inch guns and a horde of anti-aircraft guns.
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 09 Oct 19: Added boats. Adjustments for better printability.
Tested with PLA at .08mm layer height with .4mm nozzle.
