James Hetfield

James Hetfield 3D print model


This piece represents an early 90's James Hetfield, the lead singer and rhythm guitarist for one of the most popular heavy metal bands...MetallicA.

I've created three variants for this:

  • Single piece with guitar strap included;
  • Single piece without the guitar strap;
  • The disassembled piece is composed of the base, legs, guitar, torso with head and both arms

For those who choose to print the statue without a guitar strap, you can use a piece of leather or a strip of fabric for a more realistic effect.

Note: The variant that needs to be assembled comes without the guitar strap and small changes in Hetfiel's pose. For example, the hands are more open to allow for the guitar to be inserted. You should also use superglue or epoxy resin to join the parts together.

The statue dimensions are the following (mm):

Height- 212

Width- 163

Depth- 161
