FRCFoamies Avro Lancaster WW2 Heavy Bomber- Plan Available!!

Discussion in 'FRCFoamies Plans' started by F1wanabe, Jan 8, 2018.

  1. Jay, I wonder if it would be possible for you to make STL files for the canopy, nose, tail and "Gun Pit" sections shown in teal color so that people who have 3d printers could print it with clear or translucent filaments for scale looks, if its not too much to ask for? Thin wall printing but to fit it on foam somehow. That would be very cool!

  3. Yep :D Wouldn't it be cool to print some gunman(s) visible thru those pits? Some LEDs... like you said, so many cool things you can do with this... ;)

    Very, very nice guys. Will this design accept retracts?

    That could be possible, I'll see what I can do after the final version is complete! Good idea!

    All depends on the final weight as it is, I wouldn't rule it out but we will go for a belly lander for now.

    That is a beauty. Have you put her on the scale yet? Do you think it could be hand launched by ones self? It would be awesome with a bomb bay and a 3d printed barrel bomb.

    Bigger flies better.;)

    Haha, this was one of our beta testers from today, first clear day we have had in ages. Now this one is out the way, we can work on refining it and getting it finished.

    I just love how it sounds too with that little touch of growl in the turns.

    It needs some color though.

    Still working hard getting this bird dialed in and refined in sketchup. Working on the removable wing right now, think I'll be ready to build the next prototype with this new wing. The picture of the painted lanc is from one of our beta testers, Andy. He also added some 3d printed part's! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
