About

World’s first collection of 1/56 scale warplanes!

Mitsubishi Zero, Hawker Typhoon, Ju 87 "Stuka," and the B-29 Superfortress
Mitsubishi Zero, Hawker Typhoon, Ju 87 "Stuka," and the B-29 Superfortress
 

For this project we are creating a collection of 1/56 scale airplane models for 28 mm scale gaming. Warplanes make for great game models as well as terrain pieces, and there are currently no manufacturers that make 1/56 airplane models. Support us on this project and be among the first in the world to add one of these models to your army.

The models are available either as a plastic model or as package to print by yourself. 

Designed by a mechanical engineer, our models are easy to print with little post-processing required before painting.

All our models comes as an assembly, individual parts are pre-oriented and optimized for 3D printing.

Scale:

The models are in 1/56 scale. Other scales such as 1/72, 1/48, 1/35, or any custom scale are available on demand; please message us beforehand.

 At 1/56 scale, most warplanes will have a wingspan of 20 to 25 cm, with a few exceptions...

For those of you looking for something truly gigantic...The B-29 Superfortress has a wingspan of 77 cm (30 inches) at 1/56 scale.

Below are the models available as rewards, stretch goals included. The table below also contains the price of each individual model if you wish to build you own customized pledge.

3D Printed Model: Receive a fully-printed mode

Print by yourself: Receive parts and STL files to 3D print the model by yourself.

Landing Mode vs. Flying Mode: Due to limitations of 3D printers, the Landing Mode cannot be converted into Flying Mode or vice versa. You must therefore decide which mode you want. See the FAQ section for the detailed explanation.

From Previous Kickstarter:

For those who have missed our last Kickstarter, we have made a few models from our previous campaign available.

The order by which models are unlocked, as well as the addition of new models, are based on backers' suggestions. 

Below is an overview of all available pledges.

Below are pictures of some of our models, all our models were printed on a desktop 3D printer at 0.2mm layer height.

While building up this Kickstarter, we have also been working on another model, the Karl Gerat.

We had initially planned to release both the airplanes and the Karl Gerat in a single Kickstarter, but we realized that it would be better to separate them into two campaigns instead. As the model was already being print-tested, the Karl-Gerat Kickstarter is currently scheduled for early spring 2019.

Risks and challenges

Model Creation:
The process of creating high-end 3D printable models is much closer to engineering design than 3D modelling and requires a vastly different skill set than designing printable characters or terrain. Fortunately, our designer is a seasoned mechanical engineer and is more than capable of tackling any design challenges from this project.

Fulfillment:
One additional challenge of this project is that there is shipping involved. However, we are currently in discussion with fulfillment partners to make this Kickstarter for EU and international backers.
