Thanks Pat. I'm at a loss to understand why they would put a Scale (1/350) on it - real chains come in all different sizes depending on the size and type of ship.

Probably because a lot of plastic kit builders don't realize that and keep searching for "chain" in the scale of their models. Maybe they found that "doing the math" to convert "links per inch" to various scales was above a lot of their customer's pay grades. :D

Yep, the products are offered by market... in this case, for the builders of the very common 1:350 battleships.


The smallest stud link chain I ever printed was 13 links per inch, suitable for the new 1:200 plastic battleships. It couldn't be produced reliably, so I gave up on it. I still get plaintive calls- "do you have any more chain???" This PE chain could be available for 1:200 BB's, would be a little easier to work with!
