    Thanks T-Cat! Just need some Panzers to hunt down now! Might also mess around with working on some inner gear doors next.

    After about 4 months or waiting, the 3D printer has finally arrived. I'm having a lot of fun tinkering with this, learning new things, realizing the possibilities that open up in the hobby with 3D Printing, and electronic gadgets are just flat out fun.

    After reading the whole manual front to back, assembling it, cleaning the print bed, performing calibration and test printing, I have begun having some fun slicing in PrusaSlicer. At the monent I'm testing a print in Prusa PETG filament, and will hopefully resemble a finished Freewing Avanti 80mm EDF Jet exhaust nozzle.

    I did a rescale of the freewing L-39 3dpup for my cockpit. Is this considered "kitbashing"

    How 'bout a new release from Motion of your favorite "gotta have next"? I might die for that.

    My Prusa has been getting a real workout lately. Printed up a T-33 cockpit for one guy, then D's A-10 cockpit and other scale details for another guy. I've also finally started delving into Fusion 360 and making some parts for a 1/8 scale Saab Draken that some friends and I are working on (using the molds that were used in the movie Firebirds). This is the fuse support that butts up against the inboard elevon.

    I built my own box with some wood, MDF, and weather stripping. drilled a grid of holes for the base, and have a hole on the side of the box for a vacuum to press-fit into.

    The frame that holds the plastic sheets is also made from MDF. I use my kitchen oven to heat the sheets, and just prop the frame up on 4 corner with mason jars as the plastic sheet sags ~3 inches by the time its ready to be pulled out for forming.

    Got most my painting completed but had some bad moments due to paint wrinkling and paint peeling from the frog tape. My punishment for trying to be lazy with rattle cans instead of a airbrush

    pulled the canopies with my vacuum former and working to complete the office and get it flying again.
