Hi eveyone !
I'm currently working on one of my favourite SF vehicule, the K Spinner of Blade Runner 2049 of course.
I'm modeling it from total scratch, with all the references Internet can give me. It's gonna be 1/12ish (cause I could not find the real mesurements)
Here is where I am now :

The modeling is done Under Fusion 360, and I'm about to print the first big parts.... !
(I have a cheap 3d printer so there gonna be a lot of post processing !)
Eventually at the end of the all process, I'll put the files and documentation on my Etsy if some of you are interested. :)
I'll keep you posted !

Thanks Augofett, but I haven't be able to find any scale on the big one from Meca (15,2cm long).
But mine is around 30 cm long !

In the mean time, I managed to get all the main body parts done. But I've been through some under-extrusion problems with my printer, and I may have to re-print some of those... (OMG I would love to get a big SLA printer !)
Anyway, it seems to fit perfectly !

The Neca one is supposed to be 1/43, so the real one should be 15,2 x 43= 6,53 mts. 6,53 divided by 12 = about 55 cm. So; in 1:12 should be 55 cm aprox.

Awesome job so far! I'll definitely be in line to buy the stl files!

Has anyone made a good 3D file of the spinner from the original?

At the end of the assembly process I will release those files and the documentation at my Etsy Shop. I'll let you know ! :)
You will probably do a better job at the finishing part than me ! (as I'm not a Miniature Specialist).
I also wonder if I should work on a "hollow version" for those who wants to "light it up"...

Oh ! That would make mine a 1/20ish... Where did do you find the 1/43 scale information ?

It was sometimes refered as 1/43. i also saw a video stating it´s 1/24. I think is a tad small for 1/24 but looks big for 1/43.

Augofett, this image look way too much photoshoped and really out of scale.
In my opinion the vehicule lenght should be aroud 4.5 meters (the lenght of a standard two seats Ferrari).
That would make the Neca version at 1:32 wich make sense.

Just look at this picture with the real prop. You have a real wheel to compare to :

What do you think ?

In the mean time I'm working on a new way to split the differents parts and correct some imperfections for the next print session....

More for the reference library. Display poster appears to be standard 24"x36"/61x92 cm) foam core board. Denis Villeneuve is 6'/2m. Somewhere I have a front view photo with a role of duct tape sitting on the passenger side "fender"...

Thanks Rick !
With the cardboard trick (if the size of the poster is correct) I found something aroud 5,50 meters.
Btw, Denis Villeneuve is 1,82m, that would make the heigh of the car around 1.60m

Image 52 and 53 can help you find out the length from the back wheel axis to the center of the front wheel well (actual wheel is offset) if you can reference another car (against the floor tiles) as that measurement is exactly three floor tiles. If you can find the measurements of Deckard's Sedan I think you could do it and there is an accurate kit of that.
The you use this picture and a measurement tool in photoshop as it's the best picture I've found in terms of minimal lens distorsion and perspective almost straight on.

I did an overlay where I tried to crudely match the size of a seat from a car that is exactly 4.30 meters (2006 Lambo Galliardo Spyder) in length and they kind of match so I think your first take of 4.5m was a better estimate since the you can not trust the angles and lens distorsion of the Denis Villeneuve picture at all.
