Topic review - *3D printed models* Upcoming Ship Releases

  Post subject:  Re: *3D printed models* Upcoming Ship Releases  Reply with quote
I just released the 1928 Rhine river cargo ship Cimbria (or her sister Normannia) in 1/700

This little ship is a typical inland motor freighter designed in middle of the 1920es for european rivers. These were very numerous on Rhine, Danube, Seine, and all other waterways. These would also be found in coastal ports in major river estuaries, bringing the goods from inland factories, supplies and fuel to be exported on ocean ships, or picking foreign goods for inland customers.

This particular ship is based on the plans published in 1928 Werft Reederei Hafen magazine. A pair of fast inland motor ships, Cimbria and Normannia were built for N.V. Reederij v/h J.H.Koenigsfeld, Rotterdam in german Maschinenfabrik Christof Ruthof, Mainz-Kastel and Regensburg in 1928. These were designed to serve the overseas goods export business of the owners, bringing the cargo loads to Rotterdam from such major industrial centers like Strassburg, Frankfurt or Basel. They were built for rapid turnaround, and high speed for an inland ship. They were between the first diesel driven inland ships, as diesel engines made a good progress in the mid-20es, and were much easier to operate, reducing the harbor time.

The ships were 64,90 meter long overall, 8 meter wide, up to 2,65m draught, and could carry 767 tons on that draught. Their 600 Hp engines gave them 19,5kmh when loaded to the more usual 1,8m draught.

Ho-lee mother-of-god!

That Mikasa looks phenomenal for whatever scale that is (looks like it might be 1/2400).

That is far better than the white-metal miniatures I have seen in even larger scales (such as 1/1200).

I want the entire IJN Fleet in that scale.

The model is similar to plastic kit - consisting of a lot of different parts.

That model is only available in the cheap, unsuitable quality - likely because of the size. For sure not a good replacement for the Pit-Road kit.

That looks more like 1/700. There are even prices listed for some kits if using auto translate... Best way would be to make a twitter account, and check if you can contact the guy, he seems to be very active.


Per discussions with the account, this model is a prototype and will be available shortly through the site listed.

The 1/2000 stuff from the last 3 links is sold under https://www.dameya.net/ (url spotted in the photos ;)). They have lots of different kits there - would try to order from them tonight.
