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.

After the war, Bong became a test pilot for Lockheed and flew various types of aircraft, including the P-80 Shooting Star, on which he unfortunately died during testing.
