1/144 WWI Observers with Lewis Guns [×30]

  • Frosted Ultra Detail

    Matte translucent plastic that showcases fine and intricate details.


Tired of aircraft being manned by ghosts? An array of thirty 1/144 observers for WWI aeroplanes. This set has 20 observers with single Lewis and 10 with double-Lewis. Guns are modeled as close as possible to correct proportions given the limitations of FUD material. A box structure protects the model during shipping. It is intended that you can snip off an observer, trim, and glue into existing crewless plane models. This also works well for replacing crew on WSF models, which -- while cheap -- suffer from lack of detail on the observers. Frosted Ultra Detail material assures the finest detail possible for the observer and the guns.

I got the test print back from Shapeways on Feb 6, and all 30 observers printed perfectly, so I have marked them as purchasable. There's a photo of the actual print in the model's photo collection.

I just need to get a test-print back from Shapeways. I've run a single-copy version and it came back looking good.
