Crashing in style.

Really cool Stepacz! I was certain you'd break a wing with those tight turns. Looks really strong though. You should do a build video, time-lapse style.

Hi everybody, after a long time of testing we have first 3dprint files ready for you. I attached PDF/VIDEO user guide so you can see some details and so on (there is also some links...)

Really well done. Congrats on a very polished model and instructions.

I see you are gluing PLA with CA, Ive not had much luck with that. Is it because you are using activator?

Yes, with activator it sticks very well, I was surprised how well it holds together...

Printed the nose section of the fuselage last night. I have some very minor issues with my printer setting and some internal stringing BUT ---

WOW is this a quality file set. I left for work with the next fuselage section printing.

If this flies like it looks this will be assume.

Really looking forward to the Mustang that is coming and the Thunderbolt that is planned. A Bf-109 or FW190 would also be awesome.

Any details on the design process? I am printing one right now and I am amazed with the amount of work that must have gone into the interior structure.

Hi, yes I plan to make a video that would describe this develop phase.
Yes wood filament yeah it would be great, but little tricky to print it, we will see.
I made new VIDEOGUIDE, I highly recommend it to everyone (mainly who print our spitfire) there is some very usefull or maybe mandatory information for best result.

I printed a test section of a wing the other day just to see what the weights and thickness of skins would have to be. This one was way off and ugly, but you gotta start somewhere. I like how you have integrated all the structure within the wing stepacz it looks awesome, one hell of a CAD drawing man! Would love to see more!
