Thompson Brothers Aircraft Fueller
I haven’t posted for a while, but this is the completion of a 3-year project. The Thompson Brothers Aircraft Fueller (TBAF) was in use on RAF airfields during the 2nd world war. This representation is in 1/24th scale and is scratch built making extensive use of 3D printer technology. The design is based on the example at the Yorkshire Air Museum who were kind enough to let me photograph and measure their example. The design was drawn in Fusion 360 CAD software and printed on a Prussa I3 Mk3s FDM printer and more recently an Elegoo Mars Pro resin printer. The figure is there to give a sense of scale and is a commercial product!
I hope you like it!
