So, on the bench we have a Halo M7 Magnum. Ready to prime then paint either later tonight or tomorrow. On the printers we have a Silencer and Laser Sight for the Magnum. I'm thinking of a look like the last photo with a few variations. Though there was a vote from Nikki for a camo job. I MAY try the digital since it is a bigger print. Maybe use the Cricut Explore Air 2 and an 8x11 sheet of card stock to do the digital stencil. Maybe some black, and greys.
he MP40 is still chugging along. I had a few setbacks due to a loose extruder arm. I gotta upgrade that extruder to a dual gear one. AND I dropped the barrel a couple of times and broke it. After that the overall strength was shot! Printing a new one with more of an infill and more walls. Right now it is just a pile of parts on the workbench
from Wednesday 5 January to Wednesday 16 February 2022
FINALLY started on the MG42. I printed the stock on the Elegoo Neptune 2D. With the dual extruders I was able to print the infill with cheap Amazon Basics white PLA and the outer skin with the more expensive (and running low) Wood Fill PLA.
It took longer to print but the savings with the Wood PLA was great!!! Ant the fucker is solid! I'm going to give it to Nikki to put a nice stain on it. The Wood Fill PLA takes stains almost as good as real wood.
The Luger P08 is DONE! Took a while and it really didn't come out exactly how I wanted. Between the holidays, having 3 or 4 other print projects going and a couple of computer projects going on all at the same time I kinda rushed this one. IT doesn't really function at all, mostly just a static display. Maybe I'll revisit this one later on and redo it.
