Flying Frigate

$17.95

“Hoist the mainsail, fire the engines and take to the skies.  Today we hunt dragons.”

The Flying Frigate is a fantasy ship conversion of the Frigate Mk2. It is only configured as a cannon version. Included in the .ZIP file are: separate deck layouts, interior fittings such as barrels and boxes, cannons, rigging clips and a mounting stand. The separate decks can be used to simulate movement within the ship.

For best results switch on ‘supports touching build-plate’, this will avoid the stringing under the hull.

To rig the frigate, check out the Rigging Guide. You will need dowel and black elastic string.

This product is part of the ADD-ON The Lost Islands Complete or Add-On The Lost Ships. Please log in if you backed the campaign.

This product is delivered as a .ZIP file pack containing STL files for use on a home 3D Printer. The files are set to 28mm scale but can be rescaled before printing.

Q & A

  1. joe

    Wow this is great! Just in time for an Eberron campaign. I will defiantly be purchasing this item this weekend. If you plan on doing versions of some of the other boats in a flying configuration I will be more than happy to purchase them as well. Any plans on making any other flying boats available?

    • Matt Barker

      Yes we will eventually end up with a whole fleet of these. From the Dhow to the Gallion. 🙂

    Joe! Count the hours it takes you to print all the component for this massive ship! Just because we all want to know! I’m just printing some of the cannons right now. 😀

  3. Steven

    If I don’t permanently attach the “whole bottom” piece, or the stand, does the ship stand on a flat surface like the Frigate Mk2? It looks like it, but I want to make sure.

    • Sam Campbell

      Yes, the Flying frigate is designed like this so you can print the bottom half upside down completely flat and the top half normally completely flat.

    Could this be armed with Tesla cannon for a Steampunk theme?

    More Seriously:
    Are there any provisions for ship’s boats?
    Is there a “solid” model for small scale?
    Are the decks suitable for use in an RPG? I will be using 15mm scale.
    I am buying this now.

      In the Fittings folder you get crates, Barrells, rope, piles of sails, etc. These come standard with every ship,
      There is a 2 part solid model for printing in small scale. AirFrigate-Whole-Bottom-v1.3 and AirFrigate-Whole-v1.2
      The decks are suitable for RPG, they’re designed for gameplay rather than sticking to true ship dimensions.

    What should I use/print for the rectangular plate connectors to connect the top to the bottom of the ship. I plan on keeping the top and bottoms non-glued to allow for removal of the top of the ship to use like its in water.

  6. alex.tweney (verified owner)

    Do I need to print supports with the top parts? My printer is having a hard time printing the supports but I printed all of the bottom parts without supports just fine.

    • Sam Campbell

      We test printed the whole ship without supports.

  7. Blake Clevenger (verified owner)

    What is the recommended method of connecting the parts together? Specifically the tops a-c and the bottoms a-c. I see there are holes there and I’m guessing it is for a small piece of filament but I’m not sure.
