It's actually a misconception that Concorde wasn't profitable. On the contrary, Concorde service was British Airways' most profitable service, all the way up to the final cancellation of Concorde service. However with Airbus, the successor to builder Aerospatiale, deciding to discontinue production of replacement parts, and the airframes approaching their rated lifespan, competing with ever-shrinking demand for supersonic flight due to business passengers being able to telecommute was found to be unfeasible for the national airlines of the UK and France, so the Concorde fleets were retired.

In any case, this is a very well detailed model and I can't wait to get it through my printer and have the most beautiful airliner on display.

looks awesome, what scale is it now, or how could i scale it to for example 1/144? I'd like to buy some decals for it in that scale.

Thanks!

I'm not sure, it's been a bit since I looked at this one. What is the wingspan showing in mm in your slicer?

the wingspan is 190.6mm

Scale it down to 177.8mm and that will be 1:144 scale.

Hi,Thanks fora great model. Is there any chance you could modify to have the windows more visible. Can hardly see them and like to
leave the model unpainted. I have a smaller model where the windows are very easily seen.
Thanks agin.

You design beautiful stuff!

I just started as a teacher at a school, but nobody knows how to use the band new 3dprinters. So I took this task upon me. :)

A student was interested in this Concorde, but could you please cut the midsection in 2 pieces, 2files? Standing like in the current position it is so large just above 200mm now that it tends to tip over and even with a big brim/skirt it moves a little bit during printing so the jet engine exhaust dont come out in a nice detailed way. I am still a 3dprinting noob :) I could scale it down so it fits in the Cubicon printer, But rather keep it 100% your design

I really hope you are willing to cut in in half, so the bigger wing part can be printed vertical.
If it works i will make some photo's

Hmm, what is your infill setting? I can slice it in half for you, but the problem that might arise is shrinkage at the outer portion of the wings. It's why I tend not to slice down the wing anymore. Have you looked into techniques for better bed adhesion as well? Gimme a few days to make a modification to the midsection.

We already printed the nose section and tail, it didnt warp in the Cubicon Single Plus. We printed it in ABS (infill 50% but 20 or 30% would be good as well i quess) with a very large skirt, so it didnt tip over. It came out really nice. But the midsection was to large for us.

I could try to scale it down to 80%, (But we like big planes :P). Our school starts again next week, so there is no hurry.
We will try some of your other designs as well

I have to learn how to use Sketchup myself as well, The 3d printing virus has hit me too..

Greetings Feraz

I sliced it in half and added a slot for the same joining cube as used in the rest of the parts. Just make sure to print an extra cube and you'll be good to go! Can't wait to see pictures!

Best,

Steve

Beautiful work oranhunter!

Something that would be nice is to specifythe wingspan and length of the model in the description. Not a big deal, but nice.

Thank you for sharing your work.

Ah, I didn't measure it. But I tried to keep all parts less than 200mm in height. This is about as large as my SR-71. And thanks!
