Alexander Pokryshkin – 3D printable figure of a famous World War II pilot
The Product includes:
· STL files
· Prusa 3MF files with complete settings
· Gcodes compatible with Original Prusa printers
We understand that everyone builds aircraft models in different scales, and it is not feasible for us to create a set of models for every scale. Therefore, you can adjust the size of the model according to your requirements.
To change the scale, modify the .3MF file by either increasing or decreasing the model size in percentage. The model is provided in a 1/8 scale.
Examples of scale changes:
To change to a 1/6 scale, increase the model size by 33.3%.
To change to a 1/10 scale, decrease the model size by 20%.
3D printable figure pilot
The pilot figurine sitting in the cockpit is one of the most important components of every RC airplane. It is crucial for the overall aesthetic impression, as nothing is worse than seeing a beautifully built model airplane spoiled by an unattractive or missing pilot figurine. However, many modelers consider this small detail to be insignificant. Nevertheless, we believe that it is a misconception, and therefore, we offer a wide selection of 3D printed pilot and crew models ranging from the 1st and 2nd World War eras to the modern era of aviation.
Alexandr Pokryshkin was a Soviet military aviator and Air Marshal who was active during World War II. He was born on March 6, 1913, in Novosibirsk, USSR and passed away on November 13, 1985, in Moscow.
Pokryshkin started his career as a pilot in 1933 and during World War II served as a commander of aviation groups on the Eastern Front. Throughout his career, he flew various types of aircraft, including the P-39 Airacobra, which was used by both the Americans and the Soviets at the time.
During his career, Pokryshkin achieved many significant successes. According to various sources, he achieved more than 59 victories, of which 48 were during World War II. He was awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union three times and received many other honors, including the Order of Lenin.
Pokryshkin was also known for his ability to lead his subordinates and organize attacks on enemy positions. During the Battle of Kursk in 1943, Pokryshkin led a group of aircraft that achieved great success in disrupting enemy defenses.
Pokryshkin’s career continued even after the end of World War II, when he became an instructor at a flight school and later at a flight academy. In 1959, he was promoted to Major General and in 1967 was promoted to Air Marshal.
