Just launched another new crowdfunding campaign, for a 1/350 scale 3D printed USS Midway, in as built condition.

https://outoftheboxmodels.com/collections/crowdfunding-projects/products/crowdfunding-uss-midway-cvb-41-as-built

There are only 10 units, at $75 each, since the flat rate to design a 1/350 carrier is $750. Once all 10 are sold, CAD Development will begin, and all purchasers will get their model once that process is complete, one week before the model is up for sale in our store.

Sweet! A probably stupid question; is this for the CAD file to print our own?

No. I will be printing it, and shipping it. Good question though.

Cool idea! :woo_hoo: I have just oredered mine! :big_grin:

I guess this will be a craftsman kit like the model kits from IHP ... and one has to add the rest from the aftermarket?

Well, i have been toying around with the idea of scratchbuilding exactly that vessel ... and my research showed that everything
is available! :thumbs_up_1:
Being it aircraft (Corsairs, Hellcats, Helldivers) or all of the other stuff like 5" guns, Bofors quads, Oerlikons, Mk51 and Mk37 gun directors,
life rafts ... and so on.

... i am really looking forward to that monster! :heh:

... and please a waterline version for me!

Greetings from Germany,
Jan Schulz, SIG-Waterline

One of my engineers is going to do the Midway and Atalanta side by side, but he is finishing another project right now, but we expect to start both of these in a week or so!
