Ships – Space Station Repairs

The Space Station and Scaled Up Space Station prints are really intricate, and really delicate.

Ships – Old Republic Imperial Destroyer

Adding some variation to the expanding fleets: To make the printer cleaner, I rotated the model 90° around the x-axis, and scaled the model down to 20% of original size. At full scale, this model is almost half a meter long. Source: Star Wars…
