Full-body 3d scanning at the 2023 Railroad Hobby Show

miniprints is bringing their full-body scanning system to the 2023 Railroad Hobby Show. So, if you need a scale image of yourself for your layout (and who doesn't...), you will be able to add a feature to your model railroad that few others will have.

The scanning process takes about 20 minutes and the cost of the mini-me scan is $89.99US. Five figures in N HO S or O scales are included, and the five can be a mix of scales.

Delivery of the figures will be approximately two weeks after the Railroad Hobby Show.

miniprints (yup, small m) is a 3D printing company that fills an important niche in the model railroad world - super detail parts. Birds, animals, people, objects, vehicles, and just about anything else can be brought to life in N HO S and O scales by miniprints.
