Germany Pilot WW I. – 3D printable figurine of a World War I 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.
During World War I, the German air force, known as the Luftstreitkräfte, was one of the most advanced air forces in the world. Although it was initially small and independent at the start of the war, it quickly became a key tool in Germany’s war against the United States, France, and Great Britain.
The German air force was a pioneer of several key technologies, including the synchronization mechanism that allowed for firing through a rotating propeller. This innovation enabled German fighters to inflict greater damage on Allied aircraft.
In addition, German pilots had a high level of training and many of them were decorated. Several German pilots became famous, including Manfred von Richthofen, known as the Red Baron, who scored 80 confirmed kills.
Throughout the war, the German air force participated in many important actions, including bombing raids on London and other British cities. German pilots also operated in ground battles, where they helped coordinate attacks on ground targets.
As the German air force was one of the most advanced air forces in the world, it was a significant challenge for the United States, France, and Great Britain to fight against it. However, new technologies were developed and deployed during the war, which allowed Allied pilots to better compete with German fighters.
