Money.... just printed paper. And what would be the WOW factor of having a figure of yourself in the middle of your layout?. Jose.

Wow, I wonder if the machine does the paint as well? Otherwise that'd be a heck of a paint job to do for any normal model train scale figure, except maybe G...
Yeah, I think I would pay for a figure of myself on my own layout. I'd have to wearing something, "timeframe neutral" at the time just to be sure it'd fit on any layout.

I think mine would be wearing ''Garage Casual'' along with appropriate holes and grease stains--otherwise no one would know it was me

Yeah, technology is on the move.
You can buy a handheld 3D scanner and a 3D printer yourself and do the job yourself, the trick is the software. At this juncture in the 3D modeling world it can be done with photos and some decent software and all you really need is the 3 D printer.... Seriously its a tool on my bucket list as I am useless at making figures and try buying 22.5:1 figures.....
