The Fluyt

$19.95

A large ship of consequence, progression and tax avoidance, the East India trading company employed these as the stalwart of their trading fleet to choke out competitors. They needed to be armed to fight off the pirates attracted to so much wealth… and if they were to fall into the wrong hands could be used in a pinch as a mercenary vessel.

The Fluyt is a ship that can be used in a fantasy setting or historical setting. It was originally purposed by the Dutch as a sailing vessel for transporting cargo.

To rig the Fluyt check out a general Rigging Guide.

It includes separate deck layouts, a removable ‘wake’ that simulates ship movement, ballista and rigging clips. There are rigging clips for normal angles.

    Hi;
    I just noticed that the small printer version of the The Fluyt has a problem; Fluyt-Front-A-v1.7.stl is the same piece as Fluyt-Back-C-v2.1.stl. In other words; its the stern of the ship and not it’s bow.

    Was wondering if you can update the model to have 7 cannon ports on each side of the ship
    so its more compatible with firelocks Blood n Plunder ?

    Also I have notice the bottom half of ships hulls don’t print out that well a lot of cleanup needed “with all ships”
    to fix this problem suggested that the deep wood grains in that area be alittle more shallow not as deep
    i think would solve that problem
    Thanks

      Adding cannons is something we could do as an upgrade in the future.

      You can turn on build supports touching plate only for the ship pieces and that will solve most of the stringing problems.

    A tip, not a question– For those with a small printer, when assembling the rear of the ship, I definitely recommend gluing together pieces that assemble side to side first, and then gluing those pieces top-to-bottom.

    I did it the opposite way and I’m having a bit of trouble with gaps.

    • Sam Campbell

      Sam Campbell (verified owner)

      Yes, a very good tip. You can do it this way.

    A question about all the ships you’ve got available – would it be possible to get versions of the decks with 1 inch squares on them for movement on the decks?
    It’d be nice to have them able to track movement instead of guessing where miniatures should be.
    Thanks!

      Thanks for suggestion we’ll add it to our ideas queue for possible development.

    What does the rigging AA AB BB mean?

    • Sam Campbell

      Sam Campbell (verified owner)

      AA = 2 small holes, AB = big and small hole, BB = 2 big holes. It’s for the relative diameter of masts to fit through.

    What is fluyt-Rig-V1.1 for? I looked at all the photos and I cant see it used anywhere.

    • Sam Campbell

      Sam Campbell (verified owner)

      fluyt-Rig-V1.1 is s placed next to the mast in two square indents.

    About how much string?

    • Sam Campbell

      Sam Campbell (verified owner)

      Approximately 5-10m, the 1mm millinery elastic is quite cheap so we didn’t measure how much precisely you would need.
