HO Scale or larger Back to the Future 3D Print Model 1-87 3D print model
This is an HO Scale 1/87 model of the Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine (also includes files for OO 1/76 scale). But you can upsacle it to any scale you want and it should print fine. No down scaling though since you will run into parts being too small and or thin. The Doors are separate and can be posed in the open position. It has three wheel configurations, regular, hover, and train. It includes an accurate, detailed interior. If you have a resin 3D printer you can print it out using that. There are two sets of files. One set of individual parts files for home resin 3D printing and the other sprued part files for uploading to Shapeways. You can have Shapeways print the model for you in their detail plastic material using the “print anyway” option at checkout by uploading the files to Shapeways yourself.
Wires: You can use the provided 3D printed side wires. But you could also use thread or magnet wire to model wires. Thread is easy to glue and comes in lots of colors. Just make sure the thread isn’t frayed. Axles: It comes with 3D printed axles but a 1mm metal tube would be sturdier. Decals: The decals are mostly for the rear lights and license plate. They can be printed on decal paper (I use MicroMark clear decal paper and a color laser printer) or even regular paper and cut to size. However, the little window inside the window decal would need to be printed out on clear decal paper. Windows: For the windows you could print them in a clear material. Or you could print them, make a mold and cast them in a clear resin. Or you could use them as a template for cutting some thin clear plastic to use as windows. Or you could also try making windows using Microscale MI9 Micro Kristal Klear.
