    Hi I been printing the superstructure for Dunkerque and so far it is coming out very well . I wasn't planning on building this ship but the printing has allowed me to make it viable .

    Some nice clean prints there, Curt. 3D printing is really making superstructure easier.

    Yes it's perfect for rc combat models and non combat . I have a lot of hulks waiting to be built and this will speed things up substantially and save costs on time , money and materials . I find too that the material is extremely resilient to weather. Startr
    Yes .

    Kudos to rcengr for the fabulous stuff he's shared with us. Dunkerque is looking good - look forward to seeing her on the water.

    I was able to complete the printing of the Dunkerque superstructure . Just need more lifeboats . I also installed the subdeck frame . Just need to sand it and prep it for waterproofing .

    2nd coat of resin applied to the subdeck and hatches. Like AZ need to palm sand the rough spots and bumps out and then proceed with waterchannellkng layout and install, drill out the shaft placement and rudder placement .

    Making slow but steady progress . The crane is in thr wrong location. Should be two of them and located just behind the command tower port and starboard . I am missing a section that protrudes out in front of the forward superstructure and meets up with the main deck level ending behind the second barbette of turret 2 . I am also missing a section of superstructure that is wedged between thr center secondary turret trunk barbette and the aft superstructure. The boats are just there to get an idea of location hut most are not the correct ones.
