GOODesign is a design studio established in Seoul, Korea by a representative who has been active in product design and 3D CG field for 20 years. As a design company that pursues a reasonable and differentiated digital design, it has always presented a new direction through working with clients such as Hyundai Motor, Siemens Korea and beiersdorf.   This time, we have put out the life product for 3D printing by utilizing various technique design based on the shape of the Class-A surface. These products are especially the result of deep research on the 3D printing dominant shape that can not be mass-produced using a mold.

I designed the F-18 Super Hornet for the theatrical release of the movie Top gun Maverick. I tried very hard to express every possible part. I pride myself on being the best 3D printed airplane design I've ever designed.
Printing may be a bit difficult because there are a few small parts, but if you finish it well, you will be very satisfied.

1. AAA batteries are placed in the front of the plane to prevent the plane from rolling backwards due to an imbalance in the center of gravity. Please prepare exhausted AAA batteries.

2. Before making, be sure to remove the custom support and assemble it.
Remove the support and cut off any remaining parts with a knife. Any leftovers will interfere with assembly.
3. When connecting the flaps, please connect the flaps after checking the shape carefully and matching them.
4. The hinge that folds the wing should be turned over so that the bottom side for printing is up and connected to the wing.
5. The lower part of the flap(rudder) of the vertical tail wing is slightly inclined. Before attaching with glue, please put it on and check it carefully.
6. The cockpit instrument panel slides in with a slight twist.

Please check the video for detailed assembly process very carefully.

    Is there a pedestal for this plane?

    I'd love to see some drop tanks added as an option for this model

    Hey,

    Running into an issue where I cannot move the joints after printing specifically the smaller parts. I'm assuming its an issue when printing. Is it possible to get a recommendation on printing settings?

    Thanks

    Great model, looks like its moving its so sleek. Could we possibly get closed landing gear covers?

    We added a landing gear cover at your request. If you download it again, the file should be included.
    Please enjoy~
