3D Printed Spitfire Mk XVI

If you head over to 3dlabprint.com they have several airframes designed and ready to print on your 3D printer.  I chose the Spitfire Mk XVI.  It’s 1:12 scale with a wingspan of 38″.  Total print time was about 35 hours and material cost came in around $15.  Look for the maiden flight at the May Fun Fly & Swap Meet.
