That would be great if someone has a model of a Turbo Otter.

If there is such a thing here is a website dedicated to the DHC-3:

I'm sure these folks would be contributors to the idea.

Klaus, do you have contact to Neil to bring up the idea...
Probably not enough volume to get a mass production on the way with any reputable manufacturer...

I'm going to call around and find an outfit with a 3D printer and see what their interest would be.

Neil has tried to do models many years ago and couldn't come up with enough pre-purchases. Ten years ago they want quite a bit up front. These 3D folks are looking for ideas...

I have access to a 3D printer, but you need something to scan in 3D to duplicate or really detailed cad cam files or at least photos from multiple angles. My significant other did talk to Lego and there would need to be a significant market potential for them to bring out a new kit and as there are a number of new pieces in the prototype .
