    The real boat was 14 meters long (551 inches). Divide that with 34" ( your model) = 16. It's 1/16th scale.

    BTW, you're printing this in right and left halves, How will you access the WTC inside?

      Romel,

      Thank you for that information on how to calculate model scales!

      My plan will be to use the three inner hull sections to make entrance into the hull itself by cutting the TOP portion of those three inner sections that will lift off for access to the WTC.

        Isn't it possible to modify the files to include the top hatch in the printing?

          Maybe you could go with Manfred's Type XXIII radial hull separation. https://youtu.be/dwpT6FzhrZI .

            Romel,

            I do not have the ability myself to use a CAD system for the modification of the hull sections. Plus, I already have three sections already printed. If I go the route that I mentioned, I will use a high-end zona saw and cut the hulls by hand to achieve the top removal to gain access into the hull. Patience, time, and accuracy is all that is required! It may take some time, but doing it by hand will give me a much better cut than using any power cutting saw...

            Thank you for posting the video! That is another possible way to do the WTC!

              Rob,


              In the future, if you have a challenge like that, hit me up (or post up here and I'm sure someone else will step up). Slicing STL files is a pretty rudimentary thing for a program like Netfabb or many others. Many STL files out there are not optimized for our needs, so a few minutes of playing around can save hours of labor later.

                Today I finished up the outer hull sections on the ICTINEO.

                I have also made the decision as to the propulsion system (550 brushed motor) with the small Viper ESC and I will be using a 2.4 radio system. The only control on this boat is a rudder and it will be controlled with a standard size Hitec servo. The power will be supplied with a 7.2-volt NiMH battery... This is all predesign at this point and is not set in stone. I also need to start designing the WTC as well!

                  I have started to assemble the hull sections together.

                  Right now the hull is just taped together to get a feel as to how it will all fit together. It is going to be a challenge, but so far it all seems to be a good fit!

                      I am quite sure that one will work a lot better than the original! Interesting build!
                      I first learned about the Ictineo II from an article of a german modeller who actually made it in RC from wood! A sort of Super-scale model.

                        Kinda has that Jules Verne vibe.
