Thread: Enlarging question
April 20th, 2014 #1
Hello, here's a really noob question:
I have this model on a 1/24 scale, in fact an assembled plastic model kit:
I want to enlarge it about 4 or 5 times to build a wood model.
Aside from the basic scale math I'm not sure how to replicate the curves (like in the hood and around wheels) to the exact same proportion as in my plastic model.
I've seen 3D pantographs for this purpose but I don't own anything like that. Do you know any simpler way to achieve the same purpose? Thanks in advance.

OK. So CNC milling is out.
Is it safe to say you also lack a fused deposition 3D printer? If you printed the scaled model in plastic you might be able to make a plaster mold into which you could mash a sawdust and glue mixture and prepare a sort of particle board model. I'm not sure you would achieve the aesthetic effect you are probably going for.
Do you have a 3D scanner?

Thanks arttorney. I don't. My resources are limited. I'll probably just choose the "eyemetre" with the some accurate measurings of the car parts. I'm not aiming at real lifesize proportions so I guess it will be acceptable to viewer...
