I'm interested in a airplane available from Shapeways. However the picture of the plane shows it without a propeller. I have contacted the designer but have not received a response.


I know some planes show a propeller attached at the rear but this one doesn't.

Can I assume a propeller is included?

The propellor is included.

If you click the 3D view icon in the upper right of the picture, you will get a rotatable image you can roll to any angle. Flip the 3D image over, and you'll see the propellor molded to the bottom.

A lot of Shapeways plane models come this way, with the prop printed somewhere it's easy to shave off. I assume it has something to do with printing complex shapes.
