Missing layers in printed plane part

  • I am printing a 3D printed plane (PT17 Stearmann). My printer is a Creality Ender 3, My prints are finishing with layers missing, sometimes up to maybe 8 or 12 layers but mostly about 3 or 4 at a time but right along side of this problem there can be up to 25mm. of nice satisfactory print. I have played around with layer height, layer width, filament multiplyer, hot end temps, and base plate temps but I can't get a full print that I like.
    Has any body else had this problem or does some body know some suggested setings to try with my Ender that may fix the problem. The printer is only new although I have checked belt tension and obvious things that could cause a problem. I have also tried a different filament but the same result occurs. I am printing with PLA.
    I'd love some help or suggestions
