>Will we see a miniature anytime soon?
I'm not sure; Adam's working on a suitable 3D object file, as he did for the Phoenix Queen, but until I have it and can plug it into the system at Shapeways, I won't know if it's suitable for printing. (I expect it is, it's a pretty simple shape all things considered, but there's no way to be certain without testing it.)
That said, if it is suitable, I may or may not have the money to get it made until school resumes this fall anyway; and then there's Dave's turnaround time if and when he's up for painting it. You may need to adjust your assumptions regarding what "soon" means, is all I'm saying. :)
(For reference, a quick check of the relevant email trails indicates that the Phoenix Queen model took about five weeks from the time I received the .OBJ file from Adam - two for Shapeways to make it and get it to me, two for UPS Ground shipping to and from Dave, and one for Dave to paint it.)
