I drew up a file for the Kab in about 3 1/4 inch size and may have it 3D printed depending on how many are interested.

At this scale some of the tiny detail is tweeked to allow for it to even show up at this scale. This would be hopefully a body with a wheels/axles to be attached. No clear windows...paint windows black. I have a few details to add but I think you see where it's going. If you have any reference you would care to share please let me know and I'll look into adding it. There was another version of the Kab so if this one does well I may do that on as well...perhaps Deckards's and J.F.'s vehicles as well. If this gets under way if anyone wants to make decals they are welcome to do so with my blessing. Looking at a approx $40 range. I wanted to do a 1/24 scale kit and have already begun it but I don't get the feeling that people are up for that kind of item.

You are looking at it...digitally.
Unfortunately there will be no investing in a real world print if there are not enough people showing interest.

I would get one.
I collect any vehicles from Blade Runner so a Kab would be great.

It's been about 13 years since I saw some of those Ertl cars. I believe it would be larger as I recall those BR cars being a little smaller than Hotwheels(I recall BR at about 2 1/2 inches but it has been a while). Perhaps more in scale to the spinner that came with the DVD set...perhaps.
