Yevgeny Pepelyayev 3D Printable Figure Soviet MiG-15 Ace 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.
Yevgeny Pepelyayev was a Soviet pilot and war hero who served in the North Korean Air Force during the Korean War. He is best known for his success in the Battle of Kumsong in July 1953, where he personally shot down 5 American planes.
Pepelyayev was born in 1924 in the Soviet Union and joined the Red Army in 1942. After the end of World War II, he became a flight instructor and later was assigned to combat units in Korea.
In July 1953, Pepelyayev participated in the Battle of Kumsong, which was one of the last major battles of the Korean War. In this battle, he single-handedly took on five American planes, which he shot down during one mission. This success made him a legend among North Korean pilots and he became the first Soviet pilot to be awarded the title Hero of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
After the end of the Korean War, Pepelyayev returned to the Soviet Union where he continued his career as a pilot and instructor. However, in 1960, he was discharged from the military due to alcoholism. He died in 1978.
Pepelyayev’s most significant achievement in the Battle of Kumsong remains respected to this day in both North Korea and Russia. His piloting skills and bravery were recognized by foreign observers and became an inspiration for many other pilots.
