I like this manufacturer's unabashedly direct WYSIWYG approach in marketing its products.

Sure, it's a bit "rough around the edges," lack some detail and is saddled with unsightly scan lines, but at least it's not as fuzzy as the gun they previously posted: TMP link

From the eyes of a 53 year old all I have to say is, "What scan lines?" wink

To my eyes, it looks awful.

Its not worth the money to 'fix' these 3d printed vehicles. Just buy a plastic kit and get a mostly perfect model. Rubicon makes terrific plastic kits with little or no hassles with them. It would be different if these were literally dirt cheap but they aren't.

Couldn't these scan lines be easily fixed with sand paper or a decent file?

It depends on what material they are printed from. Some materials don't sand well. With some materials, it is said to be easier to use a 'solvent pen' to smooth the lines.

Currently 3d print is mostly usefull for models and scales that are not covered by plastic (or even resin). The additional amount of work going into a printout to make it a nice looking model easily surpasses the extra-cost of a good kit – unless, of course, you have an extraordinary printer.
