Detailed 1:25 Jet Car replica from "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension" - just the thing for driving straight through a mountain. I 3D modeled Buckaroo's famous jet car, down to the license plate, from tons of screen grabs and production stills and is as accurate as I could get it.

The jet car is an SLS 3D print made from nylon, which is strong and light. At almost 10" long it's surprisingly light due to the material and hollowing out the car to reduce printing costs. The tail, wings and overthruster projector come on a sprue and can be cut off for installation - they friction fit or can be glued in place.

The finish looks a little more matte in person and the surface will have a slightly rough feel. If you're the artistic type, the model can be finished and painted. The surface is somewhat porous, so a primer coat is recommended. See here for tips on finishing this type of 3D model:

Remember, no matter where you go, there you are.

Frequently asked questions about CharlesworthDynamics

3D printed objects are made by 'slicing' a digital model into many thin layers. These slices are sent to a printer that 'draws' each layer by extruding plastic through a hot nozzle.
There are a lot of different materials available now but the two most common are ABS (LEGO plastic) and PLA (biodegradable plastic) which is what Charlesworth Dynamics uses.
While the 3D prints aren't hazardous, they are not food, dishwasher or microwave safe.
They are very strong, but will break just like any plastic item if abused.
3D prints are very strong if printed properly but will break just like any plastic item if abused. Since the object is printed in layers, they will have a slightly ridged texture to them unlike a injection molded object. There is usually a 'zipper' which is a slight vertical seam that indicates where each new layer starts. They may have slight defects or blemishes and the bottom which adheres to the print bed may have some discoloration. Kit pieces may need minor clean up or trimming to fit together. This is typical of most 3D prints.
Yes, you can sand and paint 3D prints like a normal plastic model. You can even use products like Bondo Glazing and Spotting putty to minimize and smooth the 3D printed texture. Make sure to use a plastic-friendly paint.

On occasion I will also build items out of 'real' parts and hardware - typically I use vintage Film & TV equipment parts. I have made lamps out of old lenses and jewelry out of old camera parts. Keep in mind that these are all used parts and will show their wear and tear and age - it's part of their charm.
