We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
It's not a bird, it's not a plane, and it's definitely not Superman - it's a bird fighter. If a bird had sex with a jet fighter, well, that wouldn't work out too well. But this might be the progeny if it did happen.
I'm thinking of using a smaller scale version of this as a chopstick rest.
You should probably use support, but it is not strictly needed. I used a fairly thick layer height with no support, so things got a little wild and wooly towards the top of the wings, which is evident in the layer separation of the print. The fill can be mostly hollow, I used roughly 15%.
