    Len, not a physical store. Shapeways allows people to have a virtual store where the "owner" can upload their models plus organize their own pages and indexing. The owner then can adjust pricing by adding their profit to the Shapeways price.

    Shapeways does not sell products, but only printing services. If you search for an item (ie "propeller") the list you see is that of products in various stores.

    Lew, you say you have a store. Does that mean you have a retail site?

    In my "Shapeways " store I changed everything to "not for sale". They have a lousy policy, crummy search engine, and over priced. Has anyone found a decent alternative?

    Somewhere on Shapeway I had found turrets for the Dido as well. I will do some digging and try to find the link to post.

    The wikipedia article is worth the read. Simply GOOGLE "hms dido on wikipedia" (sans quotes). She fired the last shot of WW2. And the tale of her partial drydocking is significant.

    I am named for HMS RODNEY. What a load to bestow on a child, especially grades K-6. Fortunately my Gr6 (elementary school) teacher was similarly named, coming to my defense whilst being bullied. Now my Amateur Radio callsign & car licence plate is VA3ROD๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hi Ron: Definitely check Shapeways. You'll be amazed at what comes up. Just search HMS Dido. diStefan 3D Print does wonderful work as does hawkins751511 3D Boats.
