1/48 R-2800 3D Printed Engine

May 5, 2024 · in Aviation · · 15 · 440

A friend of mine designed and printed these beauties. I was so impressed with the pictures that I just had to pick them up to see how well they would paint.

I was not disappointed at all!

If you are interested, I have a video showing how I painted them here: https://youtu.be/mmnXRf3mR-w

Otherwise, I have a blog entry here: http://modelairplanemaker.com/2024/05/03/the-death-of-resin/
