So this in my next project for the 3d printer. I used the photo of the stunt here as a base, and this is the side view of the model.
I used an image from someone's stunt pistol I found through google, I'm pretty sure it was on here. I can't find it again, so if anyone knows whose this is, I would appreciate letting me know so I can thank them. There was a certificate of authenticity in the background that I used to scale the pistol, assuming the certificate was originally 8.5x11.
Below is the print of half of the handle. It took about 2 hours to print. This pic was taken after a layer of glazing putty was applied and sanded. It will take at least 1 more, and then a primer coat to see where it stands.
I'm not too worried about the final finish, because I'm planning on transferring this pattern to wood with a machine I'm still working on. It's basically a 3d manual copier, called a pantograph. Mine will be quite a bit smaller than this one, and capable of cutting a reverse image.
