    Hi Guys.

    Just joined, but have been on the site lots of times during the years. :)

    I played WC1 and then Privateer in the 90`s and was totally hooked at the time....just loved the games.
    I recently gave Privateer a go again. and got hooked again. Im actually following the game plot this time, instead of just flying around blowing up stuff :p

    Anyway, 2 years ago I got my first 3d printer, and now im on my third , and got everything sorted out.....it is a hobby in itself, and is just not plug and play yet.....

    I found the Privateer ships : Centurion, and the Tarsus, and the Galaxy class freighter.

    I have printed the Centurion, and in the progress of filling and sanding it, and Im also printing parts for the Tarsus.

    I think these models look great, and just wanted to share some pictures of what I have got to so far.

    Anyone else print WC models ?

    Very impressive.
    Did you rebuild the 3D models from scratch or have you use the ones from the Privateer 3D Archive? :)

    haha, Tarsus, dont know how I got that wrong..... :)
    Fixed it.

    I downloaded the models from thingverse in the 3 links above, and used meshmixer to cut them up to suite my printer.

    That's a nice looking Centurion. I actually came across Astrofossil's Thingverse collection not that long ago. He's got a pretty nice assortment of ships there though I wouldn't know much about the quality of individual files or anything.

    Got a little more printed and installed on the Tarsus :)
    It is still rough, and needs cleaning up.

    Welcome! Always good to see a friendly ship! (And that greeting was perhaps never more appropriate!)

    Those are damn good looking!

    Thanks guys.

    Find someone who has a a3D printer near you, and get it printed .
    They take a few days to print and will require some time to finish too.

    I have not printed anything of the Galkaxy yet.

    The Tarsus just became a very sexy piece of hardware.

    Are these pla, abs? What are you using to smooth the prints out? just sanding ? or something else like acetone?

    Its PLA, so Acetone wont work on this. Besides, it dulls the details.
    I have not fine tuned the process yet, but giving it primer, and then a couple of coats of inexpensive polyeruthane clear, seems to fill the surface nice before sanding, then painting.
    It does take ome work.
