As long as for and easy way to do the fuselage mold, yes... there are You can 3D scan the surfaces and then CNC milling the mold. Anyway there always will be a hand finishing process that must to be made by expertise hands with a lot of patience!

Have fun! Leonardo
Looks like most of these molds (especially the micros) are created using Revell or various scale kits. I guess CNC would be the high-tech option. It would be nice if you could just dip the Revell Kits in some Plaster materials to create mold. I guess CNC/wood option would be more durable and reusable.

Hope you hear back from Mike soon. Shipping to Spain may take a while. Mike seems to have the best deals out there. Let us know how your next scale project goes.
