I have been getting some 3D printed parts for my builds and have been asked by the designer as to what modelers would want made in 1/48 scale.
What would you want printed that you would buy?

For starters, cannon and carronade barrels,and figureheads

Keith, I think the easy answer to your question would be replacement/upgrade parts for all those cheap (mostly very poor quality) white-metal / britannia metal parts you find in kits including decorations, cannon, figureheads, etc. If these are done with more care for the detail there may be a market especially if packaged as 'detail up packages" for various ship kits (*much as the PE you find for some ships and many plastic aircraft models).
I have just had a whole ship done (at 1:350) and the level of detail that can be achieved using the right printing medium is incredible.
If at first you do not suceed, try, and then try again!
Current build: HMCSS Victoria (Scratch) - underway
Next builds: HMAS Vampire (3D printed resin 1:350)
Built: Battle Station (Scratch)
HM Bark Endeavour 1768 (1:64)
