Recommended Posts

A new brand from Czech Republic is offering a range of 3D printed aircraft accessories, including ladders, wheel chocks and exhaust nozzles:

These products aren't particularly cheap, but the quality is impressive, especially considering they sell actual prints, and the required clean up is minimal.
Here's an inbox review of their 1/72 and 1/48 MiG-21 ladders: https://www.kfs-miniatures.com/mig-21-ladder-and-chocks-lp-models/

I bought the ladder plus platform for Su-22 (1/48) and I have to say, the overall quality is quite good. The top handrail was a bit bent and I was reluctant to correct it as the parts are extremely fragile. But a welcome addition, I'll be buying more for the next projects!

They are very cheap. Please compare exhaust nozzles prices of LP to KA Models nozzles. The difference is just huge,
BTW, when it will be available in Exito store?

I meant the price of ladders and chocks, as these form the backbone of the LP range thus far.
Regarding the availability in Exito store, the easiest way is to learn about this is to ask them directly.

Two weeks ago, I got a bunch of sets from this new manufacturer and I confirm, that the quality is very good.

He also is a reliable trader. He pleased me to confirm, if anything was o.k., which actually was the case.
