Default My Most Expensive Model Yet

I just commissioned this cutaway engine model to be 3D printed and then assembled it myself. It measures approximately 16.5 inches long and 8 inches wide and the 777 in the picture is 1:200 scale so it's pretty big! The designer based it off of a RR Trent engine but has influences from GE and PW.

Since I don't have my own 3D printer, I paid for someone else's time and materials. The print itself was a little over $300 and the hardware (nuts, bolts, washers, and 4 bearings) was $56. If you have a 3D printer, you can do it for considerably cheaper, just paying for filament and hardware (and electricity). I probably should have just bit the bullet and got my own printer for that cost

That is not bad at all for such a nice rendering. These are the types of items that make our plane collections interesting!

Love that. we need more models of famous engines.
Hasegawa (museum?) did a few WW1 and there is a plastic jet engine kit.
But good quality cutaways would be brilliant.
