I printed an Airco DH9 yesterday, I tried numerous times the day before but kept getting a mess on the printer.

So I re-leveled the bed, going over it several times until I was satisfied but also changed the layer height from .1mm to .15mm, that seemed to fix the problem.

Of course another problem crept in...I ran out of filament!!!  I quickly(?) put on a piece of another spool I had and finished the print, but when I tried to remove the supports the plane came apart at the seam where one color stopped and the other began.  I think the total time to print was 8 hours, I set the print speed down to 50mm/sec.

No problem though, a bit of super glue and the halves were joined together once again.  Now I have yet another plane to paint and decal.

The crow flies at midnight

1/72 3D printed DH9 all painted up with minimum decals.  I can't seem to get the flat look I want, even after spraying a coat of flat clear on the model(s).

Just finished a Fokker DVII, flown by Lt. Lothar Leberecht of Jagdstaffel 7.

Still have 2 Fokker DVIIIs and a Fokker DVI to apply lozenge and cross markings to, really a PITA to apply the lozenge decals on an already assembled model.
