Buckaroo Banzai Jet Truck
Posted by aussiemuscle308 on Saturday, September 30, 2017 8:05 PM

This is a 3D print of the truck from "Buckaroo Banzai across the 8th Dimension"

the movie is typical B-movie rotten tomato, but kinda of fun and silly. He uses this truck briefly to travel to the 8th Dimension.

As you can see it's pretty rough, this is caused by the striations from the printing process. i've sanded it down heaps, but most of them are still visible. it was also mostly printed as one piece (plus the wings) so detailed painting skills were employed. it's hollow, so no interior detail, just painted the windows with gloss black.

Not really worth the very high price, but it's one i've wanted to add to my collection for decades.

Nicely done, and thanks for the review of the kit. I've had some parts pulled aside to do a partial scratchbuild of this, and when I saw the 3D kit I was torn: it was really pricey, but could save me a lot of work. It sounds like the amount of sanding required may negate any benefit
