Oh my truely amazing but I wonder if it's possible to use sandpaper to make some pices even smoother? (and dare I say better?) Perhaps the paint will have a hard time staying humm... Anyway what are you gonna print out next? :D

I believe acetone vapor is actually the preferred method, if you know how to deal with the dangerous fumes and fire hazard.

Re: 3D-Printed Mini Ship Models!
Haaaaaa.
Whhaaaaaa..
UUuuuuuuaaaahhh...

I need one of those. Right on my desk. Amazing work.

Edit: I have narrowed down my options to 6 choices:

Rakshasa
Lilith
Hatshepsut
Colossus
Deimos
Pegasus

I want to buy them all, but to get them all painted would be a whopping $450 USD. Obviously, the Pegasus would be the easiest, but I would like your input on the matter, Vasudan Admiral. What might be the best choice? I'm looking for the highest res possible, so that would be harder on a ship like the Collie.

It would also be stupid to make a Colie now when the new WIP HTL isn't out of the door yet.

Hehe, that's where the badge comes in handy! :p
edit: Beaten by mjn!

azile0: Haha the Pegasus would probably be the hardest actually due to how wafer thin it is. They should all be possible though. :)

As for the highest detail....hmm. I personally think the surface of the printed objects favours Shivan stuff the best - where the line between 'hull detail' and 'printed layer' becomes blury. However if you're talking purely in terms of which ships would have the vast majority of their detail survive the print, roughly everything cruiser size and down should be pretty much all there. (I may have to exaggerate or remove some features depending on the ship though - the HTL Lilith and Rakshasa have a lot of very tiny detail)

Corvette and above likely means things like rotating turrets or radar dishes begin to become just little lumps on the hull, and on supercaps they wouldn't be there at all.

Overall my estimate on the 'cool factor' those ships would have compared to each other once printed would be:

A ~20cm (8') Hatshepsut
A ~15cm (6') Lilith
A ~15cm (6') Rakshasa
A ~15cm (6') Deimos
A ~20cm (8') Colossus (Though for the Big C I'm thinking it might be possible to go 30cm (12') for ultimate awesome factor)
A ~15cm (6') Pegasus

Hope that doesn't confuse things further!
