    laser scanning do you want something doing

    dont know if its of help to anyone but have a industry standard laser scanner at home, this is not like those conmark or nextengine ones this will replicate to 0.00002mm, ive scanned a few "approved" scale models and then resized them to full size for companies.
    out of work now as the company i worked at layed of some of us off this week so i was hoping to earn a bit of cash to help by offering this service.

    for the admin if ive placed this in the wrong section i appologise in advance.

    price will depend on complexity and model cost but about 250 (im in the uk) for a full outside scan and 600 for a complete scan ie inside too.
    will have to post data as it will be 4 to 6 gb generally. it is as surface data and will be stl so any cad will open it.
    also i can take photos and recreate 3d surface data accuracy depends on picture quality but within 10mm isnt hard to achieve which is generally as good as you can be given car manufactures have a 4mm tolerance on every part.

    Im not online often (every 2 days usually) so please be patient i will reply to any questions

    I was going to try and do some of this to get a start on the modeling using a home built version of 1 of these. 0.00002mm...

    I believe this is the way to go with body panel replication, i wish you the best of luck. Sorry to hear about the job loss.
