1/350th SS Botany Bay

Post by Wizardofflight » Tue Dec 18, 2018 7:23 pm

Hello,

I got inspired to go back and finish the 3D model for my 1/350th SS Botany Bay. Now I need to get it ready for printing.

Okay a question for those out there with 3D printers. I plan to have all the detail parts merged with the hull parts, except the antenna. Working on what the best approach is for the cargo containers, I'm considering make it all flat panels so the whole thing is hollow.

Thoughts?

Once I have the parts sorted out I'll post the STL files.

Alan

You do realize the full load is two circles of eight each? The Botany Bay only has 5.

Sure do, I have a version of the 2D drawings that have all the cargo containers included. Was considering creating a file for a full load of containers.

I am considering making it flat panels so the hull is hollow
neat stuff, that could work great
especially if you used a 'slot-n-tab' style for the faceplate, and had the cargo containers modular from that
with O-scale H-bar into a 3-way connector for 'shelf-talkers' (which is the exact same diameter as the O-scale H-bar).
this would then enable you to magnetize each container with wire hot-glued/melted into H-bar, along the support arms.

you could then have a solid 'cradle' container with a Pivot point for the
Ball and Knuckle POP "Universal Pivoting Sign" connectors./ pivotable wire rod flightstand

I did this one, a variant and prototype that is important in the Epiphany Trek Stories. There is a front and read view as well and no container views. I didn't color those. To Sail the Starry Sea is the SS Savanna's specific story.
