KFC Commercial: Col. Sanders Map Pins

Client: KFC

Purpose: Commercial Prop Models

KFC makes a pretty darn good commercial. We are proud -- nay, honored -- to have produced these little Col. Sanders Map Pin props.

Starting with a digital model captured from a 3D Scan of a KFC bobblehead toy, the miniature heads were 3D Printed, hand-painted, and small metal pins were inserted to complete the props.
