Flash Gordon Zarkoff ship by cerberus333 Oct 12, 2012

Description

My printer friendly rendition of the
1930's serial spaceship.
I took some artistic license
in order to make it print in
a FFF printer without support.

modeled in tinkercad

Please take a look at the derivative I made and see if it might be easier to scale as you like. i made it have flat interface to glue so it doesn't have to
be a struggle to match it. It also will use less plastic and time, and I took artistic
license to make it more stylized.

Hi,
I can't speak to scaling it down,
I'll do a remodel.
personally I think the better approach for this model is to
make both pieces solid and just glue flat face to flat face
Give me a few hours and I'll post an updated one.
It is a snug fit in abs full scale anyhow.

As an FYI, at 50% scale the fit is too tight. After 2 hours of filing and sanding I got impatient and used a vice to press the pieces together. The front split in three places. Maybe once I get over the loss I'll try again with one half scaled slightly different that the other (or just print it full scale).

they are a snug fit, a little sanding on the inside of the
nosecone and the outside of the tail
and it fit decently.

Is this the one from the serials or the movie (Queen is playing in my head right now)? Either way... man, that's just excellent!

 Based on the 1930s serial .
I made some changes to make it print in just 2 parts
the wings on the nose extend to the parting line
to prevent the need for support.
I will post a pic from the serial to show the reference I used.

classic as a fan of old serials, accurately beautiful, will be printing this, now if some one would do Supermans baby rocket

 It's not 100% accurate, I wanted to make it printable
in as few peices as possible. the fins on the nosecone i had to modify to make them print without support.
It's "good enough" to convey the look of the movie rocket.

as to the superman baby rocket, which one?  it's been rebooted a bunch of times.
