At least the idea of ship models has been discussed before.
However it was more along the lines of built and painted models like the WoW figures.

Back then the DEVs said that several of their ships were unsuitable for this because the designs would have to abide by the laws of physics then.
And certain ships have rather big nacelles with only small pylons (the Star Cruisers and DSSVs come to mind) and those would probably break under the stress of...gravity.
My guess is the materials used in 3-d printing would not change that either.
