    3D printed ROTJ EE3 Build

    Howdy fellow fetts,

    I have started my EE3 build, thanks to jedicharly for his excellent 3d renders, I had to make a lot of alterations to enable me to build the EE3 and obviously print it,screen-shot-2014-07-16-3-17-22-pm-png
    So I have begun to split and print the pieces these have come out rather well although Im up to around 20 pieces at the mo!!!!

    So the main trigger mech and chamber are now printed.

    I think in the region of $275 plus postage, it uses a lot of materials and very time consuming, also i thinks it about 20 odd pieces on the plus side its only the large pieces that need attaching with adhesive the rest screws together like the real thing, its all solid no hollow pieces so gives a good trooping weight

    Hey amigos!,

    Ok got a couple of bit printed on high res so sanded to uber smooth, then primed, silver base, black, then weathered, trying to achieve the look in the gallery but very difficult!
    img_2354-jpgimg_2356-jpgimg_2357-jpgimg_2360-jpg so that piece is complete just needs a lacquer then on to the next img_2361-jpg

    Damn, I'd love to see your ESB EE3! Hell, if it comes out just as good I might have to bite the bullet and get both the EE3 and Sidearm from you all the way across the pound!

    That's some choice weathering there! what method and colours did you use? as it has a nice metal real look about it.

    Re: 3D printed ROTJ EE3 Build

    Hi thanks for the comments,
    I base coat grey the another base coat of silver then a final base coat of gunmetal grey, then washed with black, then misted with smoke, then I use oranges reds and smoke for the rust then smear silver paint in certain areas to show a metal effect then mist with smoke again which is a sticky paint so stipple after to get the pitted effect the smear with your finger silver again then scotchbright it all,

    I finally got my vintage webley revolver 6 grips so applied and weathered,
    img_2411-jpg img_2420-jpgimg_2412-jpg remember to use translucent orange its sticky and shows the metal underneath
