This is a 3d-printed hood ornament for a 20-year-old MB vehicle. The original design with springs has been copied. A screw-hole allows to mount any figurine to the base-plate. Hood ornamet spells "Kühlerfigur" in german, so this project is the next version, the "Cooler-Figur".

The design-files are available on thingiverse: The figurine used here is a batarang, that has been remixed to fit to the above base (

Enjoy this project?
