The scale is 15mm, so that means that the human here is 15mm tall from his toes to his eyes. Based loosely on the Daimler Ferret and the Stuar light tank, this piece is going to be my first attempt at a useful 3D print using the Shapeways service. If you're curious about my shapeways page you can check it out at http://www.shapeways.com/model/778184/gravcartest07combo.html

I have already placed the order and should have it in about three weeks. It's a tiny thing so I hope it looks decent. The print was only $10 but the shipping out here to NZ was $20...
