BROOKLYN - A Cony Island business owner is using a 3D printer to create action figures commissioned by residents.

Kahl's business, The Great Fredini's Scan-A-Rama on Surf Avenue, uses full-body scans of his customers to recreate them as miniature plastic statues.

The business has started a fundraiser on the website Kickstarter to create a model of Luna Park from the early 1900s and use all of its customers' figurines as part of the crowd. Kahl says the huge project will require $15,000 by August 7 to create the hundreds of 3D prints needed.

Residents in the area say they think the business is a great idea.
