"Tankasaurus" Action Figure

Intro: "Tankasaurus" Action Figure

This figure is one in a series of action figures featuring the faces of the Instructables staff. Using the technique detailed in this Instructable, we created a 3D model of mikeasaurus' face. I then used Meshmixer to attach his face to a model of a tank I found on a royalty-free model website. This figure was printed on an Objet Connex 500. Unfortunately, due to some rowdy play with the model (pew pew!) the barrel of the gun snapped off.

I have provided the STL file for anybody that wants to print their own, edit it, or just look at the model on the computer.
