Well not quite a full sized C5 but here is my attempt to create a scaled version on the printer:









Its missing a lot of detail, the main White shell I'm not entirely happy with and it needs some stickers for the wheels, side and near the front lights, but overall it I'm pleased with the result.

Dan posted:

Wow, thanks for the comments and interest in this project guys  For those interested in buying one when its finished here are a couple of points to bear in mind:
  • It is roughly a 1/10 scale model (170mm x 65mm x 65mm)
  • Wheels do not rotate, they are fixed.
  • Steering bar is fixed
  • Ideal as a decorative model rather than a toy
  • Everything is plastic and is printed on the high quality setting
  • You can have custom colours, Grey boot, White boot, Black body etc. The available colours are on the main printed pieces page.
  • Total model print/assembly time is probably about 10 hours

Thanks Chas, I'll have a look and let you know.  The rear wheel stickers will be super small

Thanks for the comments Martin.  I'll post an update when they're ready.  Although a bit fiddly at times to setup these printers (replicator 2) are excellent, thoroughly recommended

Hi Dave,

You mean full-size mirrors? Not doing them, they're still too complex for me

[quote=dave;2483]Put led lights in them battery where chain go's and little mirrors and indicators on ?[/quote]

You could probably make tiny mirrors/indicators that would have to be glued on.  As for led lights, not sure.  Its plastic only I dont really want to get in to putting electrics inside it.

About 10 hours I think lol

Dan posted:

[quote=dave;2514]When are these baby c5 going to be ready mate [/quote]

I've made the 1st one Dave  The smaller stickers (rear wheel) are a no-no, they're far too small to peel off let alone stick on.  I'll put some pictures of the final design up soon, it's mostly the same just a couple of small changes to the shell and some more detail on the boot.

I'll probably just make a batch of about 10 and that will be it, maybe do more later in the year

Dan posted:

[quote=Area51;2526]What is the pecking order lol[/quote]

LOL You're at the top Area

It will cost £25 and for those still interested in having one here are some things to bear in mind that I mentioned above:
  • It is roughly a 1/10 scale model (170mm x 65mm x 65mm)
  • No moving parts.  Wheels do not rotate, they are fixed. Steering bar is fixed
  • No electronics.  Just a plain plastic model.
  • Ideal as a decorative model rather than a toy
  • Everything is plastic and is printed on the high quality setting
  • Total model print/assembly time is about 9 hours
I have finished making the first one and will have more made by the end of the week.  I will also look at making a smaller version that will be cheaper and faster to make.

Here are the pictures.  It's printed in about 17 different parts and then clipped or glued together:

Hi Chas,

I can send it to you in pieces but it is mostly glued together and the front wheel is a bit of a pain to put together.  But if you're happy with that I can send them in pieces and make a page showing assembly instructions or something?

I'm sure 1 of them will end up on the bay, but that will be it, I don't intend to make another batch of these any time soon.  I need to service the printer as the plastic keeps jamming and it's also developed a bit of a squeak on the y-axis

The wheel caps are yours if you want them.  Remember they're 3d printed and the colour doesn't match exactly to the originals.  Please see the pics here and PM me your address if you still want them:
