This was awesome to look at, but I have one question, are you just sitting in one spot and looking around?  I was hoping I could go up into the docking tunnel, but I could not find a way to do it.

This site just came across. Its a pay for design, but excellent work for display models.

I got my very own 3D printer last Friday, a Monoprice Select Mini, with (120mm)^3 printable volume.  The second model I put through it was a Crew Dragon I found on Thingiverse (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1802512), and it worked beautifully!  The picture was taken before any clean up.

The model was made using PLA filament and was printed at 1/72 scale.  I have another copy printing right now.  A little primer and a bit of sanding, and she'll be ready to paint and will join my 1/72 "new space" collection.

I also included a shot of the printer itself.  Overall, it's been a good experience.  This is really a starter printer, given the price and relatively small build volume, but I'm a starter, so, yeah.  The software they shipped with it is an old version of Cura for Windows, and I used it to slice the Crew Dragon; I tried the newest version (2.4) with another model, but had all kinds of settings problems, and ended up spending a couple of hours today chipping blobs of fused PLA from all around the printer nozzle.  The old version of Cura does work, so I'll just use that for a while.  I paid $199 (with free Prime shipping) on Amazon.  All in all, I'm very happy; the problems were my fault, not Monoprice's.  I bought (and used) some cleaning filament today, and have ordered a new build surface and some extra nozzles.

I've built resin and styrene kits, plus lots of scratch builds, and have even molded and cast a model of my own.  It's going to be a treat to join the 3D printing revolution.  When I have time, I'll try to find a 3D modeling program so I can do complex shapes (and trusses, I hate trusses).  I'm looking forward to making models where parts are 3D printed, parts are done by hand.

There's a website where you can get a lot of 3d models based on Space ships.

https://www.stlfinder.com/3dmodels/space-ships/

Have fun in your 3d printing!!!
