Interdimensional Jet Truck
Posted by aussiemuscle308 on Monday, June 19, 2017 2:39 AM

I bought the Jet Truck model from Shapeways. damn expensive, but best way to get an easy, accurate display model of the vehicle. For those who don't know it's from the movie 'The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension', a silly 80s b-movie with quite a cult following... The model is very well detailed and shows how far 3d printing has come in the last few years. the striations (print lines) are visible, but much better than the TDR mustang i bought. It's not a kit per se, it's only 5 pieces, and has a few wings and bits that need to be stuck on as well as paint. Size is very close to my Revell Bronco, so is correct to call it a 1/24 scale. the resin has an odd texture and very light, kind of like scuttle-fish cartilage.

if you have no idea what it is, this is it: https://dp1eoqdp1qht7.cloudfront.net/community/migrated/eab/6b4/425121/image

Glad to see you got one! I was on the original mailing list for it but finances just haven't worked out for me to get it yet. Looking forward to seeing how it looks all painted up
