3DLabPrint Spitfire Mk IX (wingspan 1.7m/67in)


This looks to be the latest coming from the 3DLabPrint Skunkworks. A beautiful 1.7m Mk IX Spitfire with retractable gear and flaps on top of rudder control.

Very impressive


These guys are really on to something good. I like the way they are mixing it up a bit. A little something for everyone. Nice work!

Yea...price is a bit steep on this one.
And yes, I know the amount of work to make it is incredible........


But a lower price will let more poeple buy it, instead of being tempted of finding a copy of it on some torrent site for free one day.

SJ, If you buy from illegitimate sites you may save money, but in the long run you diminish the motivation for guys like 3D Labs from doing the hard work. Why would anyone want to spend the hundreds of hours, doing honest work when it will be pirated. If 3D Labs can't earn an honest days pay for all of their efforts, why bother.

Well, $64 on sale is still only $24 more than the P-38, so you can take advantage of a fairly good discount.

You really have to keep in mind the size of this plane (this thing is huge!), and all the new features they have implemented into this one compared to their other releases. And don't forget, once you have the files, you can print as many times as you want.

Even though I don't have the space for this plane yet, I might just buy the files now so I don't miss out on this 20% discount. If pricing will really turn out to be a problem with low sales, I'm sure 3DLabPrint will take action to lower the price to get more customers.
