I do model railroading and have been doing some details to add to the layout. Although I have seen port-a-pots in HO Scale (about an inch tall) , I wanted something that might get a laugh, and this is what I came up with:

And here's how it printed:

I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to get the interior painted.

that's hilarious. Very Happy But since it's so small maybe a full color sandstone print would have been easier than trying to paint it by hand

I though about that, and I will experiment with that material in the future, but is has a 3mm freestanding wall thickness, which is about 10 HO inches. That really would be a bank vault door!
