https://www.shapeways.com/product/968FA3TR5/napoleonic-british-seamen-set-2-gun-crew?optionId=61741989&li=more-from-shop This is a mini review of "Napoleonic British Seamen set-1 Aloft" from the 'Shapeways web site' that are printed in 3D. I have no vested interest in PetrOs Modellbau, I came across these figures on another site and wanted to try them out. They can be found on Shapeways at: https://www.shapeways.com/product/T75QHLXA2/napoleonic-british-seamen-set-1-aloft?optionId=61698559 There is a second set that I am waiting to be printed. They are a set of six gun crew, gunner, four handspike men, and a royal marine. The link at the top shows them. (This Explorer 11 is a pain in the butt.) The Frosted Extreme Detail Plastic that is used to print these figures is very fine. The toes and fingers show easily, but the compound is very brittle and will break. I've lost a few fingers and toes. Also it is recommended that before painting that EFD parts be placed on a sunny window sill the make sure the compound is fully cured. It is cured by UV light, an hour should do. These figures are in 1:48 scale, I have no experience with the smaller scales. I used thick CA to assemble the figures. When I have time I will prime them with acrylic primer and paint with the same. Enamels are not to be used as they never dry with this compound. Some simple clean-up with a #11 blade is all that is needed on the square pegs that fit into the torso. Set-1 is of two seamen climbing the ratlines, and four seamen on footropes working the sails.

1:72 Sailors Dusek Ship Kits Code: DA007 36 resin figures in 1/72 scale. Looks like a Zombie Apocalypse but are 36 resin figures in 1/72 scale. All figures are well cast. I had maybe 2-3 micro bubbles. A lot of them has separate arms so you can define their body as you like Overview: I will use these Sailors for my Dusek Maria Model. Conclusion Daniel Dusek sells these 36 figures in his shop for just 20 EUR. But you get a lot offered. My only wish would be to be able to get this set in 1:64 🙂 Apart from that these figures are to be recommended without reservation! My sincere thanks go to Daniel Dusek for sending this kit for review here on Model Ship World. To buy, go to your favorite Dusek dealer or directly to http://www.dusekshipkits.com
