Here’s another MakeCNC model I cut. The pattern is available to purchase here. Additional pictures and a quick write up is available on my blog.

That… is… beautiful!


#3

I so need this… That is by far my favorite aircraft from the WWII era.


#4

GREAT JOB!!! Looks amazing!


#5

Man, that turned out NICE! Quick question @Cole … did you use the 1/8” or 3mm pattern on this?


#6

1/8"

Some of the pieces my friend claimed needed to be sanded to make it fit. I personally think that brute force coulda been applied in some circumstances, but he’s the one that actually put it together. Alternately you could scale the model by a small amount and probably make it fit together a little easier.


#7

When you purchase the pattern … is it a one-time use or is it useable multiple times? Looks great! Very nice assembly job. :1st_place_medal:


#8

This gives me way too many ideas that could consume way too much time…


#9

Curious about how much it weighs, with all those layers.


#10

You are sent an email after purchase with the download links… they expire after 3 days.

Pappy Boyington would be proud Semper Fi!


#12

My favorite airplane of all time! That is now on my “must make” list.

Beautiful work.


#13

You’re allowed to print up to 50 copies. After that they ask you to repurchase the pattern for every 50 copies you make.


#14

You beat me to the post for almost exactly my response!


#15

Very good. I love how the strips shape the lifting surface of the wings. Now my gears are turning.


#16

It weighs a pretty good amount. I haven’t put it on the scale, but it’s quite sturdy feeling. I’d say its probably about the weight of 1.5 sheets of walnut plywood.


#17

One of those moments when you look at a build and just go… WOW!


#18

Inspired!


#19

This is really awesome and thanks for the site!

I’m trying to make a list of material suppliers and files while I await my GF. Soon…


#20

I’d buy that for a dollar… in the GF design catalogue.
