cb7h22sleeper is cool... so far.
Printable Cb7 models?

I know that there have been a few threads about this, but just wondering if there has been any progress. 3d printers have become more affordable and im thinking about buying one soon. I have been messing around with 3d design app called sketchup. They have some cb7 models on there that could work.
Has anyone made an stl. file for it? Let me know guys.

I was thinking of commissioning one for a while. Something hot wheels size so you can customize them with wheels and parts. Never got around to talking to someone though. I think something 1/24th scale would also be a good product. It would be fun to see how people customize them.

Yes! I love the idea of customizing them. But the 1/24 scale is kinda big for printer I was thinking about. It only has a 4.7x4.7 inch bed. 1/24 scale is about 5 to 8 inches. I might just have to pay little more for the bigger bed. We'll see, I have a lot of time on my hands since I sprained my ankle pretty bad and can't work for another 3 weeks. So this project will keep me busy.

if you want to spend the time preparing the 3D model for printing, here are 3DS versions of the 9091 sedan and 9293 sedan: http://www.m1xe.com/3ds_cb7_models.rar

please keep us updated if you do end up printing one, this has been a wish of mine for many many years. in my opinion, 1/64 scale would be ideal - small enough to print quickly, and could theoretically be adjusted (or even manually carved by hand) to fit on top of an existing Hotwheels base/wheels...

I wonder how hard it would be to print wheels, body kits, etc... well, not how hard, but how good small scale parts would come out.

Thanks for those 3d models, they look pretty good. looks like they are already to scale. [IMG][/IMG]

The ones I found are alot bigger but im sure I can resize them to scale. I think ill try 1/64 and 1/43 scale. The bigger they are the more detail, work and time it will take.
