I'll start off by saying I am definitely an amateur at 3D printing. This is my first experience with it. But thinking back about my old Star Trek Micro Machines collection from the 90s I decided I really wanted a updated version of those models, with the key being that all the ships be in scale. I settled on 1:5000. Using Shapeways I started my collection this week. I got the USS Defiant and a B'rel class Klingon Bird of Prey. I tried two different materials to see which I would like the most. The BoP is far more detailed but more fragile. I'll have to decide on a ship by ship basis which to use since I see the benifit to both materials. I'll get them painted soon, hopfully to an acceptable detail. I figured I'd make a thread chronicling my collection, though it will be slow progressing because I just don't have alot of spare cash to put into this project. This will probably be a part time hobby of mine for decades. One of my next purchases for this may be the Attack Wing model of Deep Space Nine. I haven't been able to find it's exact scale, but I've figured out that it is at least very close to 1:5000. I figured it would be far easier, cheaper, and end up with a better quality product to just buy that model rather than 3d print my own. Anyone know what exact scale that model is? More pics when I end up getting these back from the painter.
