Jurassic Park Jeep Scene 3D printed WIP


Recommended Posts

Ok to set the scene:

Jurassic Park where Nedry (Newman from Seinfeld) gets stuck in the rain and bails the Jeep over the side of the road in an embankment.
He then proceeds to try and winch it out (weirdly as it is pulling him farther into the jungle) and gets eaten by a dinosaur, a  Dilophosaurus to be precise. 
He loses the Barbasol can that contains the embryos he stole and was trying to sell….setting up the sequel.

I totally forgot there was a diorama section in here, it is one of my favourite ways to model.

‘This is a challenge to myself to make use of my Anycubic 3D printer and make as much of a model  as I can with resin printing.

aAslow project as I have others on the go and have to hunt for appropriate stl files to use as I can’t design myself as of yet

The idea started with finding this Jeep key chain stl file.

I thought it would be a cool backdrop for a diorama as it is thin and has a vertical component without taking it too much horizontal space on the  diorama floor

Now I know it is  not the same model of Jeep as in the film, but real Jeeps have round headlights and it is my model

Printed a few sizes just for fun and to get a feel of different scales. It came out wavy, perhaps a failed print in many minds, but it looks great for the tire texture so I kept it as wavy print and went with it. These were super thin in the smaller scales so they started to warp as they cured.

This was cool: an  stl file for the Barbasol can with the internals for embryo smugglage🤣

I just printed the can exterior, in a couple scales to get it right. Sorry it is clear resin, but the can printing and label details are on there.

Work on the Jeep. Printed a windshield and some headlights  from clear resin. There will be rain and lots of blood inside the Jeep window.
Still have the fog and overhead light bar to make. Printed out a winch for the bumper

Lots of foliage printed for the jungle too.

T. Rex sticking his nose in just because he can. The Dilophosaurus has Nedry’s severed arm in his mouth

Great idea for a diorama Scott. I really enjoy watching what people are able to print for projects now. Not sure I’m savy enough to try it. I’m along for the ride. By the way “ twokidsnosleep” absolutely cracked me up first time I read it, gave my wife a good chuckle too. 

Cheers, Steve

I wrote it in the post already 🙄

I agree Scott. Some of the prices expected by some sellers on EBay border on the ridiculous.

If I were looking to make a Jurassic Park Jeep and could not get the Tamiya one for a reasonable price, there are plenty of jeep kits out there where the kit could be modified to the rectagular headlamp style. After all it is virtually a flat panel where the lamps are mounted, so should not be difficult to either convert a lot part of replace with a scratch built one from plastic card. Only real problem might be the wheel style.

Getting closer to starting the base. Summer is not a high modelling time for me.

I am re-orienting the components to open the diorama 7D3473D0-2353-458A-935D-352D21EBAE7C.thumb.jpeg.e085c7c291a1615de3840fe7195779c1.jpegup, show the figures better and make the backdrop make sense

Not sure what scale this is in but I have a Tamiya 1/10 scale rc body. it is used but would work if that is the scale you are looking for? 

Thanks Jason, that is a bit big for the diorama

It is more 1/24 scale and just the front of the Jeep is in the background
