    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.

Description

Pilots of the Royal Air Force (RAF) played a crucial role in the First World War in the battle for control of the airspace over the Western Front. They were pioneers in the field of aerial combat and contributed to the development of new tactics and technologies.

RAF pilots were often exposed to high risk and had to face several dangers, including enemy aircraft, anti-aircraft fire, and the low temperature gradient in the atmosphere. In addition, they had to cope with challenging conditions in the cockpit, including hunger, thirst, and oxygen deprivation.

RAF pilots used various types of aircraft, such as the Sopwith Camel, Royal Aircraft Factory S.E.5, and Bristol F.2 Fighter. These planes were equipped with machine guns, which allowed pilots to effectively fight against enemy aircraft.

RAF pilots were often regarded as heroes and their stories and accomplishments have become part of military history. Among the most famous RAF pilots of the First World War were Edward Mannock, Albert Ball, William Bishop, and James McCudden.

Overall, it can be said that RAF pilots played a crucial role in the First World War in the battle for the sky over the Western Front. Their courage and abilities in aerial combat contributed to the victory of the Allies, and their legacy continues today in the modern Royal Air Force.
