The parts will have to be separated by removing them from their supports. Through a new technique developed by MarisStella the 3D printed parts can be planked with wood strips so the parts look and feel like they are made of wood. Follow the planking layout on the drawing. Ontario’s lettering is a photo-etched part supplied with the kit. The modeler will have to make the window frames from strip remains and to carve tiny grooves for them, so they lay flush with the planking. The window frames should be painted white. When the stern and quarter-badges have been planked, they can be treated with linseed oil, paint or varnish is if they were entirely made of wood. The window frames can be laminated with any ‘glassy’ material to complete them.
These 3D parts are photopolymer resin printed with SLA 3D technology (stereolithography).
