Skiff

$9.95

“Fast and mobile, skiffs are frequently deployed for scouting ahead in war time. Other times, they can be found being used for family day trips.”

The Skiff comes in two versions: small and large. The larger skiff can also be rigged as a bark. Included in the .ZIP file are: the two sizes of skiff, matching removable ‘wakes’ that simulate ship movement, and rigging clips.

To rig the Sloop check out the general Rigging Guide.

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. Sakura.j.lim (verified owner)

    Silly question im sure but could your team upload a template for sails of each of your boats, or perhaps recommendations in making both set sails and in their folded states?

    Please and thank you.

    • Matt Barker

      The template for sails are a great idea, I have added them to the to-do list

  2. Timothy Reese

    Question, are there any plans to release a ballista version of this as well? And a version with a hatch or door leading into the raised area?

    • Matt Barker

      The Ballistas that are included in the pack should fit through the gun ports

  3. Sbfirekid (verified owner)

    can you give the lingth of both sizes of skiffs

    • Jo Boorer

      Skiff 1 is 201.50mm and Skiff 2 is 265.93mm

  4. joe (verified owner)

    Any plans for a hull that can be fitted with ballista instead of cannons for this model?

    • Matt Barker

      We included Ballistas and resized them so that they can poke through the gunports

    I see a cannon model in Skiff 1.1.zip but no ballista.

    • Jo Boorer

      Thanks for pointing this out. The Ballista has now been added.

    Are you using wooden dowels for the masts? Or are you printing them out as I don’t see them on the items. If so, what is the scales thickness of the masts? Thanks!

    • Sam Campbell

      Yes wooden dowel is best for the mast, these should be 4mm in diameter for the skiff.

    I’m having issues with the rigging. So far I’ve printed both the Skiff (larger, 3 part) and the Brig on a small printer, and printed the imperial riggings. I’ve purchased both 1/4 and 3/16 dowels and I’m ready to rig this thing.

    But… It seems the 3/16″ dowels don’t fit into the mast steps on the deck of the skiff. The 3/16 dowels DO fit through rig7A from the Skiff riggings. (And for what it’s worth, the 1/4″ dowels don’t fit into the mast step on the Brig, and the 3/16 fits loosely.)

    Before I just drill out the mast steps on the ships to the proper size– am I doing something wrong?

    • Sam Campbell

      We’ve done all the testing with Metric measurements, so there maybe wiggle room or be tight with considerations due to printing and imperial measurements. Occasionally with hobby things, sanding down the end of the dowel would be the best answer. If things are tight or filling with a little bit of filler.

  8. ben1 (verified owner)

    Thanks, Sam. That’s the best answer; it was a super easy fix. For what it’s worth, your diagrams specifically call out the 3/16 and 1/4 dowels; it might be worth it to mention up front that those sizes will need some sanding to fit. I know it seems obvious but there are so many other issues that could be at play in the files or the printing itself, any peace of mind you can offer up front can save some frustration. I can take those metric dowels out of my Amazon cart now. 🙂

    Can you specify the lengths of the dowels for both the smaller (skiff 1) and larger skiff (skiff 2)? The dimensions listed in the photo don’t specify which skiff they belong to.

    Very nice model!

    Thank you.

    • Sam Campbell

      The rigging diagram is for the smaller skiff.
