    Hi. I am working on a model project.

    I am making a 1:6 scale model of the interceptor from Mad Max: Road Warrior. I got the idea when looking at kit bashed hot toys. I love Mad Max and love 1:6 everything. I also am trying to build my scale model portfolio (I am going to be a stop motion animator) so I believe this will be a great way to have both an awesome model and a portfolio piece. first I thought I would make a Mad Max figure, then I thought "What if I make a 1:6 Interceptor" so I searched the crap out of the internet and could not come up with a 1:6 scale interceptor model so I had the idea to 3D print a model. So step one was to find a 3D Model artist. I found this great artist Robertas Liekis http://robertas3d.daportfolio.com . so I told him my plan. so far he has done some great work (Below) so I'm going to 3D print this model but I don't know where would be the best place to go.

    Here is some of the work he has done so far. He is also setting it up for 3D printing. I have not ever 3D printed anything before and I realize this is a big project to start with. I need help finding a good place to print this.

    If anyone has any suggestions on places that prints at this scale, good pricing, best material to print with. any help would be awesome!


    Cheers!
