Well, that's Christmas sorted then. Thanks to the efforts of Modelu, I have tiny 3D versions of me.
The scanning took place back in October at the Great Electric Train show. I was dressed in hoodie and backpack, just like a proper train spotter.
Now, I have been printed. At the time I ordered a 4 & 7mm version. When Alan delivered the prints at the weekend, he included a reject version of the 7mm version. I can't remember what it wrong but I'm happy to have an extra figure.
Now, i know of a 4ft wide 3D printer. If we used the data file on this, the result would be 2.4 metres high - slightly larger than real life. If I get them working now, I reckon everyone I know can have a statue of me in their front garden by boxing day!
