I have been modifying one of the only wire free Bosco resins I have for this project. I've spent the last month "shopping" around for the highest resolution scanning and printing companies. I'm pretty excited.
The actual processes of "shrinking" take only about 12hrs for lazer scanning and 12 for printing (or less). Once I get the mini version (it's a very hard resin) back, then I get to spend some intensive time/labor recreating details that the 3D printing machine just can't make.
Here's an example of one I've done this for before: http://www.artbymorgen.com/dinky_ordering.asp
And here is my prototype "mock up".
I plan to make minor changes to the tail, mane and head position as well as have the virtual file flipped so that, at a glance in photos, people will be able to tell if it's the big or little version.
One of the reasons to change the mane and tail is to make it easier to cast in that small scale. The real 1:9 scale Bosco's hair was a bear for the caster and preppers.
One of the reasons I want to alter the head position ever so slightly is in consideration of the fact that otherwise, the little fellow's head will be harder to see/fall into shadow more in 1:32 scale (probably more like 1:28). If you are going to put a ton of detail into faces and eyes on such a small object, having it harder to spot is no fun.
We shall see. Today the prototype may get it's head lopped off if I have time before work. :D
