    Hey yeah just been busy with sons band stuff, not too busy to fly though! but yeah I decided I would take a break from printing for a bit and regroup. I still have and love my F86! She flys like a doll. Also my pby is still in great shape, it's just a pain to setup for flight. This corsair is my first purely petg print and build, the f86 wing is a petg wing and sofar hasn't disappointed. When y'all build the and fly that f86 you will be in for a pleasant surprise. She really flys like a balsa model

      DM, I'll check the post tomorrow. Is it my shorter "Shroud" that you want? Let me know. Best, LB

          Hello 3DP Dudes and Dudettes, I had a request over the weekend for a favor. So contrary to my best instincts, 'cuz a favor granted is a promise made', I did it and I am glad I did. To add to your STL Files here are 2 files for decorating your aircraft and helos this Christmas. 1) 100mm sq Quilted Diamond Pattern 2) 200mm sq Diamond Plate. HO HO HO!!! Best LB

                • Yep, I did a test of each one...once my silver PLA gets here I’ll be printing out of bunch of this for the UH-1C. I will use the silver so if the paint rubs off of it it looks like aluminum underneath. They look great !

                      • This is a 1/12th scale Navy pilot I just found to go in my FreeWing F-18. This should fit nicely in my cockpit LB if I get what's in the picture. I figured I could not pass it up for $22 for a full body pilot. I have your version of the of the HUD and Forward IP so I need the file that goes with the OEM part of the shroud shown on the previous page in thread 755, 793 and 795...

                          DM, I sent the IP Shroud STL File to you earlier in a "Private Message". Did you receive that? And to everyone, I will repost that STL File here later today, as I am stupid and did not get that file posted correctly the first time around. Doh! Best, LB

                          • LB I got the file. Thanks a lot. You are anything but stupid. I really appreciate you putting up with me pestering you about parts.

                              DM, Thanks for thinking that, however, Tamms believes otherwise most days. I really want you to get the cockpit all together the way you want. Seriously, no problem. As I wrote, I usually design and build at the same time, so the parts are fitted as I progress. This has been different as I wanted everyone to have these parts for their builds asap so I tried to build everything first and as I put it all together, there are some things I will add. Nothing that changes the overall, so don't sweat it. Just let me know if you have any other issues. Best, LB

                              • rifleman_btx, Got an email from 3DLabs yesterday about their new B-25J. Even had another STL set of PW Engines available. Have you seen it? Best, LB

                                        • Hello Elbee, and thank you so much for all the files you have shared for the F-18. I have a file for the missle rail and I don’t honestly remember where I got it from. My problem is that it is too big fit on the platen I guess. Cura won’t let me slice it because Its too big. But actually I am not sure the platen size shown on Cura is the actual size on the printer. I have to tell you that I am a complete noob to 3D printing. My wife won it at a cookie convention and I have been helping her use it to make cookie cutters and I thought it was time for me to make some things for myself. Anyways, do you have a design that is two piece so I can print the parts separately and then glue them together? Thanks for your help.
