The Columbia-class submarine, formerly known as the Ohio Replacement Submarine and SSBN-X Future Follow-on Submarine, is an upcoming class of nuclear submarines designed to replace the Ohio-class ballistic missile submarines in the United States Navy. The first submarine officially began construction on October 1, 2020, and is scheduled to enter service in 2031.
This model is made according to the public renderings, artists’ impressions and other images of the vessel.
The model has movable front dive planes, a rotating propeller and opening-closing missile doors.
This is just an other model of the well known Akula class, but this one is aimed for 3d printing. The details are adjusted for 3d printability. There are several versions included for easy printing in various printers. There are also shell versions with emty interiors for projects like RC submarines etc.

The Astute class is the latest class of nuclear-powered fleet submarines (SSNs) in service with the Royal Navy. The class sets a new standard for the Royal Navy in terms of weapons load, communication facilities and stealth. The boats are being constructed by BAE Systems Submarines at Barrow-in-Furness. Seven boats will be constructed: the first of class, Astute, was launched by Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, in 2007, commissioned in 2010, and declared fully operational in May 2014. The Astute class is the replacement for the Trafalgar-class fleet submarines in Royal Navy service.

I modeled this helmet by using some hand sketches wandering around the net.
The model is 3d printable and wearable. Both one piece version and the separate parts version are included in the package. The textures used for the renders are also added. Avisor part is present which should be printed by using a transparent filament. If needed , it can be omitted and the visor can be left empty.
The model differs from the models on the net by being anatomically correct. Its dimensions and form are considerably different from the sketches or other 3d models found on the internet. I’ve made this model by anatomically matching the shape and the dimensions of the average human head. Further size adjustment can be made in the slicer for the helmet to better fit to your head.
This is the Fiat 126 Vettura Urbana concept (or ‘city car’ concept, if you translate the Italian… everything sounds better in Italian), revealed in 1976 and designed for Fiat by venerable designer Giovanni Michelotti, who penned lots of nice stuff you haven’t really heard of. His 1961 Alpine A110 was alright, mind. This particular vision of the future was based on the teeny 126 city car, and although small, it wasn’t a toy.
The body STL including the engine can now be downloaded at the following pages. There is also a version with separate STL files for each piece, sliding doors, operational engine parts. The engine parts, pulleys, pistons etc, can be driven by a small electric motor hidden in the transmission which is also connected to the rear wheels. So this model can drive with electric power. With additional work, can be made to run with remote control. A challenging and very nice project to build.
