  1. Thanks Kev; After discussions with friends, it seems that they are Oerlikon 20 mm guns with or without protective shield. The screen being fixed, it was of little use apart from hindering the gunner to see the target. On small units, there was sometimes no shield. [/url] Kennebec class: Escambia class:
  2. Tks ! I reprinted 3 times, the boat rack and the gangway, not being satisfied with the result, by my fault. The fact that the printer takes half the time to print helps to reprint again. I also test the printer to know its extreme limits, we come to the conclusion that it is the resin that reaches the end of its mechanical resistance for small details, the printer is really effective at this level. I had to increase the diameter of the tubes because it was well printed with the rings to pass the end, but really too fragile during handling to pass the thread through the
  3. I should receive the Phrozen sonic 4K in the next few days I hope, I will give you a comparative test. I have already received the Photon S and the Mono X recently. Mail from Phrozen, i ordered the 31 august..
  4. About this aerial view of the AO-87 Sebec: one of the most important photos as documentation for this project, I didn't have the image in high resolution and therefore we couldn't see clearly some details like the armament, last night I found them on Wikimedia simply in very good quality. Clic two time to enlarge: So I was able to analyze the weaponry, there is still a blur on the type of the 4 guns on the upper bridge of the middle castle, 4 Oerlikon 20 mm with no protection plate ? I cannot distinguish their protection shield, or simple machine guns ?
  5. I printed pulleys today, which would not have been possible with the other printer at least as accurately. Printed some new mast booms, the others were too long, this picture helped me a lot to know the exact length. I printed new higher fittings to raise the load masts a bit low because of the storage platforms. I can pass the wires directly into the sheave without having to drill the pulleys again, a big improvement!
  6. I use the Elgoo resin, best than the Anycubic, cheaper, no smell, you can rinse with water ou alcool and after water. A good product. Anti-aliasing was in the mid range. Uv Exposure is shorter with Mono X that why. The UV are less diffused next to.
  7. What's better than drilling holes in a German boat with a German drill machine?
  8. Another test of Mono X, Different scale of this plate, same setting then Photon S, file, slicing program is different only, i use Photon Workshop instead Chitubox not compatible yet with Mono X. The smallest plate measures 3cm wide.
  9. If you want to make only small parts, Mike, the Phrozen Sonic 4K I also ordered ( I should receive it in the next few days, also ordered pre-order from them in Taiwan) should be much better than the Mono X, because you go from 50 microns to 35 microns résolution in monochrome too. The stage is smaller than the Photon S. I bought the Mono X to make large parts like ship hulls. More here : https://phrozen3d.com/products/sonic-mini-4k-resin-3d-printer-phrozen
  10. I received the Anycubic Mono X 3D printer. I was able to test . Beautiful machine! Very heavy, which is a good sign for the stiffness. The result is a little more precise. You can see it. The vertical surfaces are cleaner. It is two machines from the same manufacturer running at the same resolution of 50 microns. Only the LCD screen is different, one color for the Photon S and one monochrome for the Mono X. The faces of the object have a good surface rendering, this is a problem with the Photon S. The size of the plate is impressive as well as the printing h
  11. Fabrication of the central deck piping, 3D printing instead of Evergreen at the front. The valve handwheel, flanges, are very well taken out, draw to a diameter of 0.25 mm for the handwheel torus, layer of 30 microns with the Mono X. Really top.

  13. "Ha, nice of you to post those two juxtaposed, 9 months between the two states, not so shoddy..." It's your baby now! You'll have to avoid leaks!
  14. A first copy, 71 mm wide: Really looking forward to receiving the 4K printer Sonic from Phrozen, it shouldn't be long now. I have to reduce the height of the top letters, a phenomenon known to resin printing. Painting test on my 7 cm plate, the first one I printed. I chose Revell 92 for the bronze, and Revell SM 302 satin, for the black, with airbrush, it looks good. I found an acceptable technique to apply the bronze paint, with the foam pad it didn't do it, I used a cotton swab impregnated with paint, but not too much, by turn
  15. It's already very small indeed ( 0,3 mm tube diameter, 60 mm to. scale 1:1 ). I will look in PE stock to see if i have anything compatible.
  16. Thank you all for your regular encouragements. The boat did not come out too badly, I was a bit worried about the 0.3 mm railing. But I reprinted two of them, I was not totally satisfied with the 3D printing side. The new ones are better. Printing of the ber is finished. Height adjustment in relation to the bridge to be carried out with the cutting pliers. Painting tomorrow 20B. Here you can see the red anti-fouling.
  17. Harland & Wolff building plate design, Belfast, for the presentation stand of my future Titanic Trumpeter 1/200 assembly project. Plate of the SS Nomadic: I used the model of the "HMS Belfast" (C35). http://www.dday.center/preserving-history-historic-ships-hms-belfast.html I straightened it digitally so that it could be used as a canvas for my own design: That's it, it's a finish, it took my Sunday. A bi
  18. The design work is complete for this 40-foot USN Utility boat. The cradle remains to be drawn to place it high on the deck. Printing tomorrow.
  19. Nice job, Thornycroft hulls were used in a lot of pilot's stations in France.
