MADE TO ORDER STARTREK ships and weapons range. I have a full range of Star Trek universe ships these are all taken from 3d CGI models and then converted into STL files for printing. These are not resin moulds or cast plastic there are 1st generation prototyping models taken from a 3d file and printed out . 3d printing : The model I make are printed out on cr-10 printers with a primary layer height of 0.1000 mm this is fine detailed setting for large scale printing with in practical time frame (parts can take weeks to print out ) . With 3d printing they are no resin parts / no copy of a copy / no warping or sink hole issues, however Even at this quality you still have visible lines with this PLA plastic. ABS is much finer but not stable and prone to warp and cracking during the process of printing and not good for production of large models like these. This is basically a plastic model with a honey comb structure between the layers as its builds up; it can tolerate temp; to 150 degrees before any warping might occur. It takes roughly 2 to 3 months to complete one model this includes the fine sanding and painting time; (this time frame is based on availability of the printers at the time of making your ordering it is first come bases ) I have currently 7 printers printing models 24 /7 and I am adding more printers all the time, Complete models or Display models This is a complete model finished and painted with lighting (if lighting was shown ) with decals and stand as seen in the photos of the completed models that have been ordered . Depending on the size of the model (some these models will be over 4feet long) Some; sub-assembly and slight touch up of paint at the joint areas may be required As many of these are unique studio size models and large models they require extra protection .The built finished models will be shipped in wooden grates for total protection which will be included in the shipping costs SHIPPING is done by getting a basic quote from the shipping company once the model is compete and packaged to get a total shipping price at which time payment would be made for shipping . Payment Payment process payment can be made with western union PayPal or bank transfer. These are made to order models so payment must be made before any work is started.
