I don't want to create the universe, just recreate it.

I'm looking for usable 3d meshes of Earth, Moon and Mars I know the data is out there for free, but the data I've found is ridiculous (4 terabyte high resolution files), hard to use (5 degree slices that would need to be assembled), in formats that only planetary geologists can use, or simply stuck in the labyrinth of poorly maintained and documented government web sites where I can't find it.

What's the best way to create a 3D model from the "average" shape of real-world objects?

I'm beginning a project where I need to construct a 3D model based off the "average" shape (I'm not sure that's exactly the proper term) of a number of similar real-world objects, and I'm not sure on the best workflow or process. Example: I have 25 bananas and I want to create a 3D model based off the average shape of all these bananas. [more inside]
