DaudRay Sorry, already found it in 1/144 made from resin from a guy in Australia. I know Wings of Glory mixes scales, which is really bad. We're trying to keep everything in the same scale--1/144. But thanks for making the point.
DaudRay Why not offer this in 1/144 scale to supplement Wings of Glory aircraft in that scale?

DaudRay Understood, thanks!
DaudRay Have you ever thought of offering this aircraft in 1/144? If so, would the corrugated metal on the wing surfaces be perceptible as it is on the Japanese resin AKI offering? And how much would it cost?

DaudRay Understood. I just felt that customers should know that there's not tight consistency in product results. Your design is great--no problem there.
DaudRay I recently received two of these. Good detail & texture. One thing was strange though. Whereas one was just as firm as all the previous "white, strong, & flexible" 3D prints I'd previously received from Shapeways, the other was very spongey. I noticed that it's wings drooped when I first removed it from the packaging. I bent it (too easily) back into correct alignment a few times before it seemed to stay in the correct shape. Then, when I painted the two aircraft, one painted normally as before, but as I painted the spongey one a lot of the oil-based Testors paint bled through the wings & came out as blotches on the bottom. When I tried to drill it to put a small magnet in the bottom, the whole aircraft started to just fold around the point where the drill bit applied pressure. Finally, I just glued the magnet on the bottom. So, this one took extra work. Eventually it looked as good as the first one, but obviously something happened in the printing causing it to get a significantly different consistency of plastic.
