Title: Refactored Mercedes D.IIIa Crankcase now available
Post by: Flugzeugwerke on April 02, 2018, 09:13:11 AM
Attention Albatros, Fokker & Pfalz superdetailers & dioramists:

I've redesigned the Mercedes D.IIIa crankcase offering. Major change is correcting and resizing the bosses for the bolts that hold the halves together; the drawings I originally based these on were not accurate in this regard.

Also, importantly, the halves are now guaranteed be printed in "upside-down bathtub" orientation -- in other words, the critical detail will face up, and will print with a minimum of artifacts (aka the white fuzzy crap).

Nice. So will your old cylinders fit?

yes, that's all the same.

Outstanding Bo. Someday I will actually plan an Albatros with the hoods off. I will certainly use all of your Mercedes products when I do so!
