    It almost sounds as if you are going to ask the community to 3D print for you, without monetary compensation, a full scale model of a MIG-29 jet aircraft. Considering that the cost of the filament could reach hundreds of dollars, depending on the exact scale, you are asking too much.

    yeah, a 10 metre 3d printed model is doable - but not for free, and realistically not with the kind of machines this forum's members tend to have.
    You'd need a BAAM or similiar.

    The question at hand isn't if it could be done. People have printed full scale cars, why not an aircraft?

    The problem is the word "free." Many kilograms of filament would be consumed in creating the model. Many hundreds of dollars, euros, pounds, pesos, you name it.

    I've happily printed off models for friends, makerspace members, other internet users, some for free, others for materials cost only (pennies) but asking to have a huge model printed without considering to contribute to the expense is unacceptable.

    I believe that if carefully chopped apart and quality mating segments added, the stresses of the assembly would be distributed throughout the skin and perhaps via specially constructed trusses within the aircraft. That adds an element of experimentation (possible failure) and additional expense if attempted.

    It's so far off the wall as a prank, I hadn't considered that possibility. Of course, no additional responses from the OP points in that direction too.

    I guess one could print it costs thousands of dollars. 10-12 meter almost the size of a house.
