3D printed RC Spitfire
« on: March 10, 2019, 07:44:40 AM »

I've posted this elsewhere, but, for those who may not have seen it, I thought "why not"

I like that you print it in sections. I was just wondering: gas engines instead of batteries maybe one day?

On to the vid.

Well I got a old childhood friend that is professor in mechanics in a school in Narvik, I was there to look at a job moving a 7 tonn piece of machinery. They was to get a metal 3 d printer. In theory they can print a working engine with it

Wow that would be something to see a mini Merlin or DB-601.

Oh, I guess there would be copyright. HA!

The designer has plans for P-47, BF-109, P-38, Corsair.

A library near me has courses on 3D printing.  Now that the weather is getting better, I have to take a walk over.  I want to reprint my Led/cap ir tracking thingmebob

A Stuka would be cool as well.

Miniature paint ball guns?

I thought the fellow flying the A-10 was going to ram right into the tank.

Still looks like fun. 

Nice find
