These 3D-printed acrylic parts are original designs, accurately representing features of the actual ship based on authoritative plans. They are not 3D-printed copies of plastic or resin kit parts and therefore may be shaped and sized differently. Some adjustment to your plastic or resin kit's parts or other aftermarket parts such as photo-etch or wood decks may be necessary for best fit.
