I am currently fiddling about with 3D printers and as it is high time I built
another boat I am going to combine the two hobbies and make the decks superstructure
and some fittings
on my 3D printers, a Prusa i3 Mk2S and a Tronxy X5S. So far the results are encouraging. The model
is based on a 105ft Motor Minesweeper, a wooden
harbour/coastal sweeper. About 300 were built
and saw service throughout WW2. My example carries the LL magnetic influence sweep but proved under powered for the task and many were converted to carry an acoustic 'kango' hammer for dealing with acoustic mines.
