Fun and detailed model!

I printed it at 150% with Ivory colored PLA. Star Wars ships never seemed white to me, so the Ivory gave it that off-white I was looking for. I've made two of them at this size on my Artillery Sidewinder X1 sliced in Cura at 0.2mm, and both have a problem with one of the top wings. There's a line going horizontally and diagonally across the wing that nearly cuts the wing in half. My first print was salvageable but my second print was not.

    What brand is the ivory colored filament? I want to buy too!
    Anyway, your print quality is so great!
    Thank you very much for your printing and sharing photos!

    Sorry I didn't see this earlier. The brand on Amazon says Enotepad. I've never heard of them but I liked what it looked like on the web site so I ordered it and it's been a very nice PLA. If you look at the base I printed that in white, so you can kind of see the difference.

    I figured out my problem printing the wings also. I used a raft instead of a brim, with a lower air gap of 0.2 instead of 0.3, plus a limited Draft Shield (experimental Cura setting.) My wings were lifting off the build plate after they got about 50% high, and the model would move a bit.
