This is a great model. I particularly like what you did with the light in the clear piece. But it is more of an homage to River's sonic as seen in the show than an accurate reproduction. First, it is 75% larger than it needs to be. Printing at .75 easily solves this. Burgelaar, if you are interested in revisiting the design to create a more "accurate" reproduction of the prop, here are some things I noticed:

  • The bolt-like wings on the head of the sonic stick out too far from the head. On the original they are tight against the head.
  • The ribbed center body piece (body 5) is simply not there in the original and adds unnecessary length. On the original, the finger ring protrudes out through the upper of the two rings that slide over the bottom piece (body 6).
  • On the original, there is plate with a square loop protruding from it on the surface of main body 4 that is opposite the clear tube assembly. I see you added one in your final build.
  • the bulb-like neck piece between the main body and the head-piece is not there on the original. On the original, the top of the main body tapers towards the neck, which is narrow and similar to the sonics of the 9th and 10th doctors.
    Having said all that, let me say again that your model is a great piece of work as it is!

Would you please tell me what the assembled length and width (at the widest point) of your screwdriver was? Sketchup says the widest point is 2" before making any adjustments and that seems slightly wide to me.
