3D Printable Aircraft Models (and cars)
Whether you need more models for your games or just like to print and paint scale aircraft, the possibilities are endless. These aircraft are modeled at 1:144 scale which suits quite a few popular games on the market today.
Having the STL files will allow you to scale them up or down to suit your needs. *Note: scaling down too low may cause certain areas to become unprintable ie: wings, struts and propellers.
Retail pricing will be higher so here's your chance to get them at reduced cost!
Era's of Aviation
Without focusing too much on any particular era of Aviation history, Fickle Fiend Studio has created STL files that bridge the gap from the earliest days of flight to the most modern and advanced aircraft.
We are continuing to make more Aircraft for this project and anything added will be Free for all pledge levels $25 or higher. Let's see what we can get done in the next 30 days! You can let us know in the comments which era to focus on but we do have some ideas already.

Getting Printed Models:
Fickle Fiend Studio is on Shapeways! Currently we have several of our car models available with more to come. The Aircraft will also be made available on the Shapeways store at some point following the campaign.
Risks and challenges
Late last year Fickle Fiend Studio launched a successful Z-Scale (1:220) Car STL File Pack campaign. The intent was to deliver high detail car models that could be printed at home or by any 3rd party outfit for personal use. These models are perfect game piece replacements for such games as Championship Formula Racing, Thunder Alley, Rallyman and any number of other Car racing games.
We delivered all campaign pledges within 1 month of finances closing.
This campaign is focused on airplanes and flying vehicles from all eras for the same purpose; personalized and custom models for games such as "Tripods & Triplanes", "Wing Leader", "Knights of the Air", "Air Force" and "Wings of Glory" or any other air combat or flight game or scenery project imaginable. They are modeled at 1:144 scale but they can be resized to suite ANY game as desired.
Following the campaign there will be a link to register an account on the Fickle Fiend Studio website where all of the relevant files will be made available to download. You can wait until then or register an account now and be ahead of the game.
