Did a little detailing to the westar. Added grey to accent some details. Still need to do a little more.

You're going to want to make sure that all of those print lines are hidden. They are particularly noticeable in the second photo.

Well....I might be just re doing the westar I tried a different post process on it of using a method of using spray polyurethane and spray paint. I got a better way of doing this now.

Here is a few more pics trying to get the paint close here is the stock in black matte.

Prep with tape and foil.

I wasnt very happy with this the paint kept running in a few places, so I wet sanded the runs out and then re painted as needed.



Had a little run this time and wet sanded with 800 grit and got it out. More to come!

Thanks for the response, I bought the parts from premier props before I had my 3d printer.

Is there any good reference images for their sidearm? I didn't even realize they carried one in the show till I saw the solicitations for the Hot Toys figure recently.

Aaaaahhh gotcha, yeah that is not too much to go on. I'm guessing though based on what you can see its a more realistic approach to the westar pistols the Death Watch carry in the Clone Wars cartoon?

Here is a little more progress on the rifle, what I am trying to do is use different forms of black (flat, matte, semi etc..) on the different parts of the rifle, kind of like a real one( 37 MM tear gas launcher) has different material used. To me it looks like the rifle doesnt have much different from the real ones, except for the backwards scope(in star wars fashion  :cookie:)




Gonna be sanding it again after it drys, which may take a little longer with the weather being colder now.
