Sathar Light Cruiser

Sathar Light Cruiser

STL (3D Model)
Suggested Price $0.00

This is a recreation of the the original miniature produced back in the 80's for the Star Frontiers RPG.  It was produced at the same scale as the original minature and stands 85mm (3.35") tallwhen printed.  Tested on both FDM and SLA printers.

Here's a picture of the model printed with my SLA printer (the body was printed hollow as a test which is why it's not as dark as the bow of the ship).  This is the opposite side of the model from what is shown in the preview image above.

All of my re-creation miniatures are pay-what-you-want products.  Feel free to grab them for free but consider making a donation to help support the development.  Thanks.

After Printing it occored to me for a Deeply Xenphobic race who want to destroy the Frontier Races why would the Sarthar Cripple their Warships building them with two engines when for full combat potential they need 4!, So I replaced the engines with some Duel Heavy cruiser engines in place of the Single mounts to create 4 Engine versions :)

Actually, I've got most of them done already. Working on the battleship now and then I'll have recreated all the existing minis. I've also filled in some of the gaps (fighters, UPF and sathar destroyer, armed space station). The ones I've finished will get posted here over the course of the next couple of weeks. You can read about my modeling efforts on my blog (

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
