Post Polistil 2CV 3D scan/print project help
My lockdown 2.0 project has been to give 4 scruffy 1/25 Polistil 2CVs a makeover & create the 1971 range in Bleu Thasos, Blance Meije, Beige Érable and Rouge Massena.

I've nearly finished car no. 1 in Bleu Thasos, but like many of these the headlights have either snapped off or been replaced with dodgy alternatives.

Out of 4 cars, I have got 2 complete pairs of headlights- not enough to finish the project. And a 2CV without its headlights is just...weird.

So I was thinking of getting replacement headlights and lenses 3D scanned and printed.

Does anyone have experience of 3D scanning/printing titchy parts?

Would anyone else with a headlightless Polistil 2CV be interested in joining this project with me?

Enjoy 2 pics of things so far!

That looks fun! :D
Im not sure 3D printing would be smooth enough. At that scale, what diameter would the shell and lense be?

How about Milliput?

I have zero talent for sculpture!

I've just heard back from a place that can do small object scanning and printing. It's not going to be cheap as they have to work on the scans to get smooth shapes for the CAD file of each item but it's doable it seems.

Well Houston, it certainly has a problem :)
