Bob, those wingtips don't look all that hard to make from wood. Maybe it's time to expand your building skills.
I could give you some, er, tips.

If you spend some time with a software like SOLIDWORKS, you will be able to easily make the 3D model and save it as a .STL file

Solidworks may not be best. I would try Fusion 360.

I can do it. I work in FreeCAD and they're quite easy to do in 3D. But I agree with above statement - those tips are easy to do, way faster than 3D printing.
Buzz me if you need it.
