Transparent Hokún?

Hokún, by David Allan Designs (DAD)

With David's permission I uploaded his Hokún designs to Shapeways and ordered sample prints in Transparent Acrylic. It wasn't cheap, but neither was it unreasonably expensive either. Especially considering the subject! This is, I suspect, the only way we are going to get reasonable representations of this crystalline alien race.

There was a slight hiccup, with the arm/weapon sprue getting a warning flag but I placed the order anyway. The next step is that a Shapeways technician will review the files before printing and - if they pass that screening - then they will be printed and shipped. For this trial run I have only ordered one of each. I'll be sure to keep you guys updated as to the progress and will post pictures of the results, if successful. :-)
