Given I life in a country where buying a airsoft rifle is very expensive I thought to see if I could design and make one myself

This is the result....
about 1 roll of plastic PLA3 print material, two pvc pipes, tape, screws and some filler and days of printing

A280 Blaster

Every thing is printed except the two barrels and the pipe that is part of the stock.

Now , if it stops raining... I can start painting it

Edited for thick fingers and auto correct

I found your piece on painting resin objects..

That wil help.... I don't have those Colors that you described but using multiple layers of base paint, silver and a few layers of various blacks will hopefully make her look smart...


Oh and my leather rifle strap arrived... So i got plenty to do this week
