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


it is designed in two pieces.
they are a snug fit, a little sanding on the inside of the
nosecone and the outside of the tail
and it fit decently.

I printed these on my Wanhao 4S 3D printer. The larger one is 400mm in length and the smaller one is 240mm.
Both are excellent models. The larger one was printed with zero infill and double outer layer, it makes the model
very light. I printed in ABS and used ABS dissolved in acetone to get a paste to fuze the parts together.
I will use the ABS gloop to fill in the joins and file them back so they become invisible.
Again an excellent model thanks for the download so I could print them off to add to my collection.

My pleasure, glad you liked it.
you might like this one judging by your moniker.
it does require some post gluing (I used ABS/acetone 'slurry')
I recommend the split print as it uses the least support.
The wires I did with a stainless wire that was way better then the original paperclip (more malleable)


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).

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.

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.

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.
