I can't post pics yet until I have more posts, but I created a 1/8 truck body for a T-Maxx based on the MJ Megalodon after seeing it on a Big Squid "wish list" article last year. Built in Blender and Meshmixer. The idea was to create a form for vacuum molding purposes. The printed out version would be used to create a silicone form to do the actual vacuum forming.

Biggest issue was size, and cost. Few hubs even wanted to print it, and those that did wanted a small fortune. I wound up printing out a bunch of sections and gluing it all together. Total nightmare, and the results were subpar.
