I needed a couple of pilots for my TN Provost, and my son is building the Gnat, so I ordered four 1/15 'Jet Provost' pilots from RMP on Wednesday. I was initially a little concerned as I didn't get an email confirming the order, but the pilots themselves arrived on Saturday morning.

They look rather nice. Never having bought something 3D printed before, I was expecting to see some "layering" but it's very fine and only slightly visible on the top of the helmets. It will probably vanish under a couple of coats of paint, but I'll give it a light rub with some 1000 grade paper.

I'll certainly use them again when the need arises.
