3D model description

EVERYONE can build its own Ecto-1 with the 90 page instruction!

Check out the instructions for free to decide if you are fit for the task! I'm convinced that everyone who can turn on a 3d printer can build this Ecto-1!

Over 60 3d printed parts and 42 LEDs. All parts can be printed on a FDM machine!

The size is about 36,5cm x 12,8cm x 9,2cm (roof of the Ecto-1).
That is about a 1:16,5 scale.

You mainly need the tools and electronics in the picture.

An arduino nano and a DFplayer mini mp3 player.

Thanks to @grafitomi with the build!

You can see the Ecto in action on Youtube:

Or you can watch the build series by LeSanglierQuiRit in 250% size!! Crazy!!

If you have any issues or questions feel free to contact me on Twitter @OneIdMONstr and i will help you with the build!
