This is a biplane I made awhile ago... yeah
technically it is not a biplane, as the bottom set of wings act as flaps, actuated by hydraulics...
since the pictures were taken, someone added huge gun barrels to the wings, which I was too lazy to take off, if you wish them to not be there, then you are going to have to do a bit of editing...
I know the propeller is tiny... but once again I am too lazy to fix it...
(note, you need SketchUp to view the file)
took me forever to make, hope you enjoy!


well... I assume one cannot make it full size... so as a toy maybe... it will take a lot of work to be feasible though... I don't have a RepRap to make it with so... more power to ya.

*UPDATE!!!- new version uploaded, it has been exploded so if one is able to convert the SketchUp file to a printable format, (including a rescale most likely, i doubt one can make it full size) one could (in theory) print it out as a model or something in three parts!... side note, the old one (biplane4) is a suggested color scheme, if one wants to paint until they go blind... i have also taken off the gun barrels in the new version, so it doesn't look as lame...
please tell me if you actually make this, and send pics!


  1. print out all three components
  2. (optional) paint components in any color scheme you like
  3. glue together components (complete example plane under the file biplane4)
  4. upload some pics of it to me!!!

No results.

if some really wants to print it, I can make it into individual components, but it will need to be converted into a printable format...

yeah... like I said, I don't actually own a 3D printer, so I have no way to know how to print it... i assume since the left side is identical to the right side, one could split it in half, print out a left and right side and glue them together... but i guess a lot of work is still needed to be able to print it...

Look at the files, not printable, not maniforld. Not even in printable components.

Im confused - is this a meaningful project or a half-finished 3D model project.?

Tools required?
