Felixstowe F.2a

this is a via Shapeways 3D-printed model of a Felixstowe F.2a ready built, not a kit. It is 1:144 in scale an I think it looks good particularly the struts are very nice.
Ok, it is still not on the level of todays model kits but it gives us an idea of the possibilities of this technology. In early 2015 I will try to print my own construction of a Benoist XiV in 1/72 even more detailed in a different material with a smoother surface.
