Frigate Mk2


“Whether it be by the mighty cannon’s blow, or a ballista’s piercing strike, a wartime encounter with a frigate is one not many ships survive.”

The Frigate Mk2 comes in two versions: ballista and cannon. Included in the .ZIP file are: separate deck layouts, interior fittings such as barrels and boxes, a removable ‘wake’ that simulates ship movement, cannons, ballista, and rigging clips. The separate decks can be used to simulate movement within the ship.

It is a completely new model compared to the original Frigate, and is designed to be printed in three parts. 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.

    For the balista version, are the beams/supports in the windows supposed to be removed? I know on the cannon ships I’ve printed (sloop/brig), there are often built-in supports in the cannon ports. These look different and look like they were sculpted to look like wood, so It’s harder to tell. I really don’t want to wreck 1/3rd of my ship finding out!

      You can remove the supports in the middle of the cannon ports.

    How do I decide which version of each rig to use? Some appear to use all 6 mm dowels, others a mix of 6 and 4 mm, the the last one all 4 mm dowels?

    I second oxen007’s question. Which versions do we need to use if we follow your instructions to use 4mm and 6mm dowels for the masts?

    • Sam Campbell

      Sam Campbell

      In our prototype rigging example, the Bow sprit and the bottom middle mast are 6mm in diameter and the rest are 4mm in diameter. We have included options in the zip to do other configurations if you wish.

    Great ship! I can’t seem to find the file for the piece which sits directly in front of the main mast though (in the 2 holes there and used to attach to some of the righing). It’s in all the main photos. Can anyone guide me to this file please? Thanks

      It’s the “Frigate-rig-v1.1” piece in the Frigate Mk2 folder.
