After TomZ posted his great diorama in 1/3000 here he inspired me to see if this is a size that can be made with a "normal" home 3D printer. Sure, you can get models in this scale at Shapeways, but their printers are a "bit" more advanced than the ones you usually have at home.

So my engineer start to try, and he returned with a first result:



SMS Siegfried (after its enlargement in 1900)



Size is 28 mm. Printed in one piece, masts were added after printing.

Sweet.  And small enough to accidentally swallow...
 :o ;)

Did you print it with the gun barrels in place?

That's really neat.

I've just been going through a "Bookazine" on the pre-Dreadnoughts and it's a subject that fascinates me. I keep meaning to get a kit of one, but even 1/700 scares me let along 1/3000  :o

Yes, the barrels were printed together with the rest. And i was surprised that they were printed at all. I made some tests with other ship models, and on some, the complete guns were missing.

If you are into pre-Dreadnoughts and also into computer games, you should take a look at "Ultimate Admiral: Dreadnoughts". Where you design your own ships and bring them into battle.

And 1:3000 is small, indeed :)

Another attempts for 1:3000 ships. This time a carrier. While printing and printing the ship was ok - besides the fact that I had printed it mirrored - the aircraft were a problem.

The first attempts was to scale some 3D models to 1:3000 and print them. Which failed, because thin parts like wings were simply too thin.
So I had to design an "aircraft" where the dimensions were not correct - too thick. So it looks more like an aircraft drawn in Kindergarden :)



But when printing it in 1:3000, it works. Wingspan is just under 4mm, so painting was a bit tricky.


IJV CV Rodan, during its visit in Wilhelmshaven in 1949 (a return visit after TomZs KM visit in Japan in 1947)




Size is 87mm.

Impressive and incredible (the latter referring to the painting!)  ;D

Totally agree, fantastic stuff  :bow:

As an aside if I'd typed my initial reaction then I'd have had to ban myself  ;). I honestly don't know how you can even contemplate painting something that small. 1/300 scale figures were bad enough and that was when I had reasonable eyesight. But 1/3000  :o

BOGGLED!
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

With a VERY thin brush, a lot is possible. :)
The carrier itself was not so difficult to paint, the big "sun" on the flight-deck is a decal, the rest is painted.
The little aircraft were tricky - first white or green. Then a bit silver for the cockpit. Black for the engine. And finally a little red dot for the markings. Tried to put some in the sides of the plane, but this did not look good.

I used to have, still have somewhere, some 000000 brushes, but even with those  :mellow:

No seriously what you say is absolutely right. At that scale you have to allude to a paint scheme rather then accurately replicate one, and that is an art in it'self and you have mastered it  :thumbsup: With 1/300 figures they looked better on mass rather than as individuals.
