The War of the Worlds Thunderchild MakeCNC 3D Scene.

Inspired by Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds

This is yet another new innovation from the workshops of makeCNC!

makeCNC's  artists  have spent several months working on a new inovation in 3D Puzzle Patterns for CNC and Laser cutting. These wonderful and highly detailed 3D Scenes  usually have several creatures and elements and are equal to making several single 3D Puzzles so be prepared for a Challange. We have tried to create a broad spectrum of subject matter but please feel free to email us suggestions for future scenes . If these first scenes do well we will be adding many more in the future.Some of the scenes have been created as sets and display common subject matter, however, each scene can by made as a single project.

Please Note:   Many parts of this model are very detailed at lower scale like 1/8th and 3mm material thickness and if cut by a CNC router will require very tiny bits to be able to cut all the details.  We recommend that Router users cut at at least 1/4 or 6mm scale and still use the smallest bit possible to retain detail. If you understand feeds and speeds well for your router you can still cut these files at 1/8th and 3mm or even smaller but please understand that they are complex and will require some forethought to achieve good results at small scale using a CNC router.

The Models of The Thunderchild and Ship are Full 3D Models!

Comes in both metric and imperial scales.

Awesome WOW Thunderchild Scene in Full 3D

HMS Thunder Child is the name of the fictional ironclad torpedo ram of the Royal Navy that is destroyed by Martian fighting-machines in H. G. Wells' The War of the Worlds. It sacrificed itself to allow the refugee vessels to escape.
In the novel, Wells gives only a rough description of the ship, describing her thus: “About a couple of miles out lay an ironclad, very low in the water, almost, to my brother's perception, like a water-logged ship. This was the ram Thunder Child.” A few paragraphs later, it is said that "It was the torpedo ram, Thunder Child, steaming headlong, coming to the rescue of the threatened shipping."
In Jeff Wayne's musical adaptation, the ship is described as an ironclad but not specifically a ram or a torpedo ram; the album cover illustration of Thunder Child clearly resembles a pre-dreadnought battleship such as the Canopus-class vessel HMS Ocean. The ship is also depicted in art in the Classics Illustrated comic book adaptation of the novel, also appearing as a typical pre-dreadnought battleship. The real torpedo ram HMS Polyphemus was a smaller type of ship, 2,600 tons versus 13,000 tons for HMS Ocean, but fast, heavily armoured for her size and capable of operating in shallow coastal waters. Her hull was low in the water with a raft-like superstructure mounting six 1-inch Nordenfelt guns, again very much unlike an ironclad battleship.
