Welcome at FreeTime Toys

Hello everybody and welcome here. This blog will be dedicated to the few toys projects I will do during my free time. You can expect some toys rehab, some design adaptation and some brand new design.

If you are here you probably know my taste for Jumbo Machinder, so most of my projects are related to those big guys. Hope you will enjoy it.

Mach Baron Repro Car

Let's go for the first post.

This project is a reproduction of the eternal missing piece of the Jumbo Machinder Mach Baron: the little car in his foot. This thing is almost impossible to find unless of find a MIB specimen, but this is not for me. So I've decide to do one myself using the tools I know well. The modeling is done in 3D based on pictures of the real one, then the protoype was done using 3D printers. After some post process I'm currently making the molds to be able to do a few of them. Result of that in a few days but you can already see some work in progress here.

This first serie show a work in progress of the modeling

The second serie is the first protoype, after that, the 3D modeling was adjusted to make a few details pop out more.

  1. Love the progress on this car so far, Mike! I can see why you chose to do a second printing, though: it seems like the details around the pillars between the windows aren't popping as nicely as they seem in the images. Can't wait to see more! ;)
