    Or do you have to make the models from scratch..?

    Hi, thanks for the compliment. I would make a tutorial on how to do everything but I have lots of work ahead of me in these next months.
    But basically you download the model, lower the resolution (so one can edit it fast on regular computers) and re-scale it, then edit it in a 3D program.
    Learning a 3D program is the hard part, thats why I stick to Sketchup because there are YouTube videos on how to do most things and also Sketchup groups to join that should help if you get stuck trying to do something.

    I was a big fan of the Agera super car, I used to think your Taurus model would fit that design as a sedan nice. For rare models you can search to see if its in any video games in which some have complicated ways in ripping them out... or its best to google search the cars name and the word "3D" to see if any legitimate stores are selling it.

    I actually found the model file from a game but it needs converting... if you cant find it anywhere else, I'll convert it.

    P.S. with these powers come great responsibility not to do the following

    Hey guys well i think that Scale models are bigger or small editions of a considerable item. A design that is three-dimensional, or 3D, can be considered from every position. Many scale designs are made as affordable prototypes of large and expensive design ideas.Thanks!!

    Hey man, once you get the expensive scan, the model then can be generally (using any program) increased in size and it will keep its scale.
    Some programs are cleaner in converting the scan to 3D model then others... the best being Rapidform's XOR and Geomagic (both ridiculously expensive to buy legally).

    For what you're doing its probably best to just use this program which should will create a pretty decent model from multiple pictures... then you can get a 3D modeler to perfect any imperfections.

    It looks good... in the comment section someone mentions that the software may not be good enough to interpret the data... but I think I'll do the job. Personally I'd get a large scanner if one was available in the same price range but who knows how accurate it'll be for small objects.
