wellsprop Posted August 4, 2020 Share Posted August 4, 2020 Fellow Britmodellers, I proudly present my 1/48 Fairey IIIF Mk. IVC (Floats), CAD and 3D print kit - not currently in-production. This kit comes with 52 parts, including wing struts, float struts and float trestles and wheels. It is detailed to cockpit level, including instrument panels and a basic seat/stick - in addition, it includes a plunge molded windshield and windshield mold part. Instructions are provided, showing assembly and dimensions/locations for the metal rod (not included) required to complete the struts. A suggested colour scheme is also included (decals need to be sourced by the builder). This is my first attempt at a model kit (I'm not a model kit designer, just a CAD engineer in the aerospace industry with an interest in aircraft and model planes!), so I wouldn't suggest this kit for beginners. That said, I have been very pleasantly surprised at how well this kit goes together and the prototype built up quickly and fairly easily. Wheeled version Greek / New Zealand / FAA version Thanks too to @mahavelona for inspiring this build and providing research, images and the lovely box art, colour scheme and logo above. The model took 150 hours to CAD model and prepare for printing (most that time was on the CAD modelling) and takes 60 hours to print (+ further time cleaning and curing). Thanks!
