Francis „Gabby“ Gabreski – 3D printable figure of a famous U.S.A. 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.
Gabreski volunteered for the Army Air Corps in 1940 and began his career as a fighter pilot. In 1942, he was sent to Europe, where he served with the 56th Fighter Group. During his first combat mission, Gabreski shot down a German Fw 190, which was the start of his illustrious career. During his second tour in Europe, Gabreski shot down an additional 28 German aircraft, making him the second highest scoring American ace of the war.
After the end of World War II, Gabreski returned to the United States and continued his military career. During the Korean War, he served as commander of the 51st Fighter Interceptor Wing and shot down six more enemy aircraft.
