Ivan Sentch is building an Aston Martin DB4 by 3D printing it (one 105mm section at a time). http://replicadb4.com/
With the technology that exists out there these days are people scanning the real car to produce the kits? I imagine scanning a real car, then scanning the stripped down diner car, then 3D modeling the molds/parts to fit over the donor perfectly. Anyone doing that sort of thing?
I wonder if he will finish it before Aston get their new DB4 GTs out for sale?
If I was smarter and/or decided to wait a few years more I'd have done mine like that.

You can use a projector and hd webcams. Its called david scanner something.
If you try to master a perfect fit... these are the kind of deviations that cause divorces and passion for a project to end as a dud.
Im using an already made model for my donor... accurate or not.., one could compare the dimensions to the donor and adjust a ball park wrap around kit.
First step would be to get a CNC (diy?) machine running... then sell it once you finish the molds.
