Excellent.
Can I ask where you got the printing done and how much it was ?

I had it printed locally through 3D hubs, the cost was about $85 USD for the whole print including the Grips, which I will be picking up today.
Printed in PETG

Thank you very much, I've done painting and assembly of everything except the grips now, so I'll have to start thinking about how to weather it.

I was very lucky that a fellow browncoat resident: micjwelch helped to finish off the grips, and I'm excited to pick them up.

Added Rub N' Buff to the bracket to make it appear brass:

And I got the grips printed, they are not an exact match, but I'm super happy with the result:

Grips are being painted, almost fully assembled :D

Not while I have the motivation :D

Here we are, the grips are done. Some comparison pics to my Denix:

All done for now, till I work out how I'd like to weather it.

Here's another gift, the files for this piece can be found here:

Tonite I made a nice stand for the pistol:

It fits the gun much better than the Mal Pistol one I used for the other pics.

I pulled out the food bar the other day and did a bit of peeling and ageing. I don't have means to treat the metal so I just used acryllics as though it was sitting on the shelf for a very long time and just got opened to be eaten.
