Howard DGA-5

Specification

The Howard DGA-5 “IKE” evolved from one of two almost identical prize-winning racers “MIKE” and “IKE” developed by Benny Howard in 1932. From 1932 to 1936 both planes won plenty of racing prices culminating in 1935 when Howard aircraft won the Bendix, Thomson, and Greve Throphy – a season of racing events that became unofficially known as “Benny Howard National Air Races”.

This 3D printed Howard DGA-5 was designed by Ben Eitel and features a step by step build video as well as a comprehensive assembly manual. The model requires a print bed size of 190mm/180mm/171mm.
