(that's the ship name!)

A picket is a demilitarized warship, this one of the Thug class. Its full denomination is (D)ROU ex-Thug class because the Culture takes its nomenclature very seriously. 


5 .stl files set. The model is split in for parts and comes with a dedicated support. 


This is the third of a series of 4 printables small spacecrafts designed from the Culture cycle written by Iain M. Banks
