Japanese Pilot – 3D printable model of a Japanese 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.
During World War II, Japan had a well-developed and well-equipped Imperial Air Force, which played a key role in many combat operations. The air force participated in the invasion of the South Pacific, attacks on Pearl Harbor, and other strategic targets.
The Japanese air force was well-organized and armed with modern aircraft such as the Zero fighter, Mitsubishi bombers, and Nakajima torpedo planes. Japan also had the first functional jet-powered fighter aircraft – the Ki-200 Shusui.
However, as the war continued, the lack of resources and materials, coupled with the inability to produce more competitive aircraft, led to a gradual weakening of the Japanese air force. Furthermore, when the Allies destroyed most of Japan’s airfields and industrial centers, Japan was essentially paralyzed.
Despite its efforts and technological advances during the war, the Japanese Imperial Air Force was unable to gain control of tactically important areas and was eventually forced to surrender along with all of Japan in 1945.
