Default I am now a TIGER Commander!!

I am a real Tiger Commander! Well........ a real model Tiger Commander. I got myself a 3d printer and found a used 3d scanner. So I scanned my melon and used MAKERBOT software to put my head on a Hang Long Tank Commander.

Can do it in any scale, with any head and any figure. If you have the entire uniform even better!!

Fun city!!

Nice to see you Chief. Cool idea. Turning yourself into an action figure It is hard to see but is the resolution adequate for doing faces? ie can you tell it is you?

That is very cool. Love this new era of 3D printing technology and digitization.
