Manfred von Richthofen “Red Baron” – 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.
Manfred von Richthofen, also known as the Red Baron, was a German fighter pilot during World War I. He is widely considered one of the greatest pilots in aviation history and is credited with 80 confirmed kills.
Richthofen flew a number of different aircraft during the war, but is most closely associated with the Fokker Dr.I triplane. He first flew the Dr.I in July 1917 and quickly became a master of the aircraft. Richthofen continued to fly the Dr.I until his death in April 1918.
In addition to the Dr.I, Richthofen also flew the Albatros D.III, the Albatros D.V, and the Fokker D.VII. These aircraft were all important tools in the German air force’s fight against Allied aircraft.
Richthofen’s 80 confirmed kills made him one of the most successful pilots of the war. He was known for his tactical skill, marksmanship, and ability to read his opponents in the air.
Despite his success, Richthofen was eventually shot down and killed in April 1918. The exact circumstances of his death are still debated, but it is generally believed that he was hit by ground fire while pursuing an Allied aircraft.
Today, Richthofen is remembered as a legendary figure in aviation history. His skill, bravery, and impact on the war have made him an enduring symbol of the conflict.
