Pinup Nose Art
This model was requested by a donator who wanted a model in the spirit of the drawings that you can find on the nose of the B-17 Fortress and other bombers of the World War II. This is called Nose Art.
It was an interesting piece of work, with a special attention paid to the hair (a model of the fifties style hair is a big job). The almost mandatory bomb ridden by the pretty girl sits on a pile of clouds (I have progress to make in modeling of cloud 😉 ) for stability of the printed model.
This model is huge, so I orientated it diagonally so it can be printed on a 150*150mm bed.
The size was necessary for a good print of some details like the high heels or the hair (beware if you scale down the model as I did not test it).
Print level: Intermediate
Infill Level: %
Model originally printed on: solidoodle 4
Recommended print settings:
0.2-0.15mm layer height, 2 perimeters, 10% infill (with "Infill only when needed" checked). As usual, no support needed. This model was tested with ABS filament. The result may be different with PLA.
