Private Aircraft
 
2 Attachment(s)
My current 1/200 private aircraft collection. Eventually I'd like to add citations, cessna 337, metroliner, jetstream, and maybe some GA twins. I think I've got all the falcon trijets so far; with a falcon 20 on the way currently. The TWA was an older custom I did with the IF200 twin globe as a donor. My brother was supposed to make the decals for me, but he never got to it so I just painted them lmao Bonus comparison between the AN225, C172, MD11, and AS365

how much did you pay for that 1/200 an-225? lol

Love the Cessna. Are they 3D printed?

Yep! Painted it after the 172 I did most of my training in. Unfortunately someone had crashed it late last year when they took it without permission from the flight club

Nice and diverse fleet! Would love to see a close up pic of your C172.

Congratulations !

Is it a Mac Donnell 220 that I see on the left ?
Pretty rare and completely forgotten.

Please take close ups of some of the one offs like the Douglas 220, the 1124 Westwind, Learjet and what looks to be 2 Caravans in front of the Skywest Brasilia ..Where did they come from??? Did you make those??

By the way, you inspired me from your last post, I searched and found that rare elusive Hogan Fed Ex A380 still unopened in the box! A total waste of money, but had to have it to complete the Fed Ex fleet..

I almost completely forgot about the MD-220! I stumbled into it in a Popular Mechanics magazine article sometime in the very early 1960's. Never heard about it again after that. Anyhow, there's a nice intro article here for those who have never heard of this aircraft:

Giratina might correct me, but I believe these are 3D printed models found on shapeways.com. They have the MD 219.

Some amazing stuff, reasonnably priced, coming fully assembled. To be painted. Several printing qualities available.


All types. Breguet 941, Yak42, XB-51, B-58, Il-62, VFW 614, in various scales including 1/200. Thousands of models.

I am convinced 3D printing will change the hobby, at least its custom part.

Yep!! One of my fave business jets. I got to see the only remaining one in El Paso in 2016

Posted the closeups ! Three caravans and the newest Sky Courier. As Sutton mentioned, most of em came from Shapeways or PrintedPlanes (based in the UK).

Nice!! It's a lot better than the skymarks version IMO

Yep! Most came from shapeways. Though some are expensive, most are nicely made and super detailed. You can tell which ones had the window outlines and which ones didn't LOL





Also included larger 3D printed stuff that wasn't part of the cabinet. A lot of them were too small to be worth spending $30+ a piece on custom decals, so I did my best with gel pens and some good ol acrylic paint. Shapeways also offers different material, but I'm cheap as hell and got the worst material lmao The only thing I was disappointed with is the black falcon 50, it's much thinner than the other falcons I have including the 2000. Eventually I'd like to replace my AN22 with a diecast version. The props are very clunky and won't stay in the engine even with crazy glue

My favorite is the Learjet 35. And I love how you painted her up.
However, 3D printing is still far off from the quality of a die cast process. Here's a Schabak Lear that's diecast and is precisely 200 scale. Look at the quality and smooth lines.

The Shapeways Falcon 50 is indeed correct. Its fuselage cross section should be compared with the Falcon 20. The Falcon 900 is actually a Falcon 50 with a larger fuselage to accomodate the VIPs; they can stand in a 900, even tall ones. The 2000 and the 7X/8X kept the same cross-section as the 900.

[IMG]https://i.ibb.co/hXRcRxn/20200531-210622.jpg[/IMG]

I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the 3D printing. For instance, trailing edges are sharp, possibly sharper than on diecast models. Diecast offers smoother surfaces, at least for the time being. I expect this might change with progress in printer; lower cost and better quality are likely.

[IMG]https://i.ibb.co/p3QZjCD/20200531-210634.jpg[/IMG]

3D printing will not replace diecast for the top-seller stuff. The main advantage of 3D printing lies with manufacturing. You can obtain models from files. No need to modify a mould to obtain a different scale or another variant. Look at the Shapeways catalogue, some examples hereafter:

German oddities; the VFW 614 is possibly the worst civil aircraft ever certified and sadly it is European.

Yakovlev 42, 727/Trident inspired, obviously

[IMG]https://i.ibb.co/2NtZhL0/20200531-211317.jpg[/IMG]

Breguet 941 aka McDonnell Douglas MD 188; can be made with Eastern or AAL livery.

Convair bombers. Was fed up to wait for the Herpa Hustler.

[IMG]https://i.ibb.co/QK3Tzvr/20200531-211035.jpg[/IMG]

Martin bombers.

Got to paint those, one day.

i've always want a citation X and a beech 1900D! maybe somehow someone will do 3d print of those? ;)

I asked NG Models to make a Citation X and they said they'll produce one if they can collect enough data to make a mould.

Here's hoping, fingers crossed 🙂 !

Ng models should produce a complete range of bj

Dassault
6x. 8x
Gulfstream
G500. 600. 700
Bombardier
G5500. 6500. 7500
Etc.....

There are options to 3D print with various metals, though I haven't tried it yet as it's ridiculously expensive. Your lear looks nice !

Love the convair bombers! I was gonna get the herpa release of the B58 because I am kinda bad at painting military liveries LOL But glad to know about the falcon 50. I was worried that they got the scale wrong or something.

There's both sold by a UK maker ! Their website is printedplanes.com ; they are about 15 for 1/200 and shipping is super reasonable. They've got a bunch of highly detailed moulds cheaper/not found on shapeways
