Einstein sculpture 285 x 224 x 280 mm,
Printed on a 3Dprinterlab.org standard Prusa i3 (200 X 200 Y 200 Z).
Split the model into 5 parts and printed them with 2% infill. After printing filled the parts with plaster and glued them together with epoxy and superglue. Primed the model with zinc primer, sanded, primed a second time. Sanded again and filled gaps with epoxy.
And again sanding.

Nefertiti model inspired by the blog post and Youtube video from RichRep (Richard Horne)http://richrap.blogspot.nl/2016/03/3d-printing-and-finishing-nefertiti.html
The model is printed in PLA, weighs 9.7 kilo and 50 centimeter high.
I had to cut the model into 11 pieces so it fitted my 3dprinterlab.org standard Prusa i3 (200 X 200 Y 220 Z build space), printed with a 0.4 mm nozzle.
After printing the parts I filled them with plaster and glued them together with epoxy. Then I sanded down the joint and gave it a coat of Zinc primer and sanded down the model very lightly to preserve the 3d printer artifacts. Finally I gave the model 3 coats of golden spray paint.

Started to print Nefertiti on actual size. First I printed a small version to check the model.
