U.S.A.F. WW II. Pilot – 3D printable figure of a U.S.A. 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, US Air Force (USAF) fighter pilots played a crucial role in combatting enemy aircraft. Among the most significant fighter planes of the time were the P-38 Lightning, P-47 Thunderbolt, P-51 Mustang, and F4U Corsair.
USAF fighter pilots participated in air battles around the world. In Europe, they fought in battles such as the Battle of Britain, Normandy, the Ardennes, and bombing runs over Germany. In Asia and the Pacific, they participated in battles at Midway, Guadalcanal, the Philippines, and many others.
Among the most significant fighter pilots of World War II were Richard Bong, who became the most successful American fighter pilot with 40 kills; Clarence “Bud” Anderson, who achieved 16 kills; and Francis “Gabby” Gabreski, who achieved 28 kills.
Fighter pilots had to have excellent piloting skills and the ability to quickly react to situations during air battles. They also had to be well-equipped and trained to deal with various types of enemy aircraft and technology. Thanks to their courage, bravery, and dedication, USAF fighter pilots were a key element in the Allied victory during World War II.
