Look, when I order I combine more pices and items so that is the printing surface full, and anyway it have his cost, and when you add shipping, taxes... It's all than cheap.
Because of that 3D printing is OK if that model doesn't exsist in other materials and serial production.
And I didn't speak about 3D design, the real cost of it.....

At the end it lookslike toy so I went with hard weathering, this one survived D-day and navigated long time in dirty portual waters :D
Barrels for 0.30 are bras pipe 0,50/030 mm and medical needle 0,3mm.

Thk that few millimeters of rope costed me kilometers of my nerves :D
Trying to insert a end of line made stronger with CA in hole of diameter 0,2 mm.
I wonted to use the usci line but it hasn't aspect of rope.

Here is the 3D model which is send to print.
Firstly I wanted all deck separated from hull, for easier printing but also because my idea was to put the rope into mechanism for maneuvering ramp, on the oposite side of the skipper is winch for that.
