    To go along with those Allied hypothetical battlecruisers, I decided to build the Japanese B-65 (AKA B-64 in Conways). After I discovered that the B-65 is almost within tolerances of the Alaska class I chopped off the stern of my Hawaii and set about to make a new superstructure. Everything above the deck, except the gun barrels, is 3D printed. That's 263.1 meters of ABS filament, costing approximately $18.50.

    o_O I might be a bit of a perfectionist, which is why the 3D printer is great for me. Throw away the bad parts and re-print. :D

    Depending on the print I sometimes use the less acceptable prints for gun and damage tolerance testing.

    I'll keep that in mind for some of the larger parts, like the first 3 versions of the main turrets. The first three versions of the 01 level however are pretty much a waste of plastic - I finally had to add about 8 1' diameter pads to each piece before they would print without lifting.

    Where do you get the laser cut kits like that or are they one off items? If so how do I get in touch with who ever did the laser cutting?
