A couple of weeks ago I printed the elevator bellcrank for a Spitfire (the 
fighter) as a test.  They need to fix some issues with the model, but it 
will be reprinted 2% larger and will be used to cast an aluminum 
replacement for a restoration.

I've also printed a replacement platen knob for an ASR-33 for a group 
member. :)
