That's pretty neat. I'll have to check out that websight that sells the plans.

That is pretty cool. The see through is neat, but could be hard to spot in some conditions.

Reflecting ... bye balsa?
I have seen these products here, without a doubt they are incredible products, almost perfect, I say almost perfect because they are just in full evolution ... there will be no mistakes, everything will be asking for a model, or a file and a model is born of technology .... meanwhile, I wonder, and our hands, our pride in a product made by us? ... everything changes, but the changes do not always make part of it. ... I keep thinking about what one feels pride, pride of having done something, and feel well, dream and create .... conjugation of so many senses of a human being, embodied in a model made of wood, carved, full of illusions ...
This this 3D printing is incredible, it's fantastic, but it leaves me out of what makes me feel that I created something ... just reflecting drunken

That is cool , i see you buy the plans and print it from home . Plans are not very expensive but having a 3D printer and then buying the spools of ABS or what ever is another thing ! I guess i see it this way IF it gets more younger people involved at this stage of evolution we are in then it's good , maybe later they will want to try a hand at some real craftmanship!! How about that IC sound! I Love This Forum! link.. https://3dlabprint.com/shop/messerschmitt-bf-109t-tony/ Very Happy

I had similar thoughts coming into my mind....I also am not planning to buy a 3D printer but would stay with balsa as one important part of ur hobby is the creation by your own hands...no matter what the quality is, but that is what you, and not a printer has created.
What is marvelous though is the video that the pilot of the drone shot  by following the plane...you felt like you are in a combat plane chasing that beautiful 3D thing..

One thing to consider is the "evolution" of craftsmanship. Maybe a modern craftsman is the one who builds or assembles a 3D-printer, adjusts, calibrates, configures until it works perfectly, then models a Spitfire in 3D-software and then prints it out and assembles it with all the modern digital doohickery?

I am sure I could put together a 3-D printer from a kit and adjust it until it works but everything else would be very difficult for me. Modern technology makes many things easier. For example one can 3-D laser-scan just about any object, create a surface model from the scan and then import it into a design software. Then it is "just" a matter of designing the internals... I don't know how to do these things but I do know they can be done.

For me, building a model airplane still means cutting and shaping balsa, and I think it always will.

One could resurrect the Cox plastic CL planes from back in the day. Maybe this guy could do a PT-19 that used a Cox postage stamp backplate and a perfect fuel tank.
