This is a full-color 1:144 3D print
of R.A.F. F.E.2b №7018 of №11 Squadron, with pilot Lt. Lionel Morris and observer Capt. Tom Rees. On 17 Sep 1916, №7018 became the first victim in Manfred von Richthofen's long combat career. Rees was killed during the combat and Morris died of wounds after the plane was brought down and his subsequent capture.
No painting is necessary -- this model comes printed in full color, ready to use. It comes with an integral flight peg for mounting on game flight stands (not included), which can be carefully removed with a cutting tool, if desired. The peg is designed for a fairly tight fit; you can file it down slightly if you prefer a looser fit. The model does not come with a flight stand, maneuver deck, or plane card. You can find an unofficial plane card for this plane in this paint scheme at https://linen.miraheze.org/wiki/File:RAFFE2b-7018-card.jpg
High-Definition Full Color has a smoother, satiny surface and deeper colors; Full Color Nylon 12 (MJF) makes a less expensive alternative, with a rougher, matte surface and less deep blacks. Both are robust materials and fine for gaming. Attached here is a picture that shows the difference between the surfaces. "Matte HDFC" means the prints are oversprayed in the factory, and the difference with the overspray is subtle.
