Start of a new project, a Focke Wulf 152H plane. Just the front cowling in white PLA. Will be a while before I complete it as I will be experimenting with LW-PLA for some parts of the model in order to keep the weight down.

Inner and outer cowl snap together but will be glued of course once I get to the assembly stage.

Smooth looking print. :thumbsup

Did you do any finishing or is this the way it looks right off the printer?

This is it off the printer, no finishing. Can't get a decent photo but the print has a beautiful sheen to it.
The wall is only 0.45 mm thick - a single layer so temperature and speed are important to ensure optimum bondng of the layers for strength.

A few more parts just stacked together to give an impression of the detail. Still trying to work out how the designer modelled the panel lines in a single wall.
