3D model description
Here's a life-sized Meowth I made. Meowth are about 400 mm tall according to Bulbapedia.
I printed using PLA, with PVA for supports. All parts will fit neatly into the body or head. If you rescale, there's no guarantee on how the parts will fit.
I used super glue to attach the parts together. Use Bondo or equivalent to fill the cracks and smooth out flat spots.
Sand, Prime, fill, repeat over and over and over.
I used Krylon Satin Meringue for the base color (he's a yellow cat), then used acrylic paint for the details. I'm not the best painter in the world, but I like how he turned out.
Paint the koban (coin) using metallic gold spray paint. Be careful, the "antique gold" paints are probably not what you want.
3D printing settings
I printed using 0.3 mm layer height, because I didn't want to be printing for a month. Use bondo and lots of sanding to smooth out layer lines.
You'll need a printer with a 300 mm x 300 mm bed to print everything except the whiskers and koban.
I split the head in half just above his mouth. It made it easier to print, and reduced the amount of support material and print time needed. You can print it all in one pass if you want, just a suggestion.
If you tackle this, good luck!
