Hi Barry,

Thanks for the link. That's definitely the way to go but the seems to be quite a lot of plastic (weight) in there. When I started of this project my intention was to use a lot of printed parts on the finished model.

The reality, at this scale anyway, is that its just too heavy. Also fine structure prints like that from a FDM /FFF printer aren't very strong. I do like his design approach.

I'm very much of the opinion now that just because you can print it, doesn't mean your should. New materials are coming out every day so it won't be long before your could just print your plane.

Steve,
Tremendous work! Absolutely top notch. A very inspiring project! IMO your Hunter makes all the other micros look crude in comparison...especially mine

pdawg..... that's just the kind of post you need when project motivation is a bit low.

Having forum members of your caliber making comments like this is a sure bet to get a smile on my ugly face, thank you all.
