This is the crown jewel of all my builds. I have (like a lot of us here) been chasing this HERO for a long time now. Close to 7 years I believe. But I think I have finally found it..

This build is with my own parts while using the Reade Model cylinders for the Heat Sink as well as their antenna greeblie. The denix itself has 21 different modifications done to it to help improve its accuracy and thats not including the mirror mods to opposite side. All the weathering is done by eye while trying to replicate the last known photos of this beauty but I think it came out pretty good as well..

Man, I've been following your work since, well gotta be almost the beginning, and so gotta say, yeah. This is a crown jewel. Absolutely stunning!

I was blown away by your trigger and hammer, but the lock frame is seriously next level.

Egon thank you! Very much appreciated. Like yourself though in about a few weeks time I’ll probably find something I can “tinker” with to improve it. Cheers pal!

Another hero build.. this one isn’t my OCD variant. But I really do like how this scope bell weathering came out :)

Check out this thread if you are interested in a Compac scope replica made with either resin or MJF.. or let me know what parts of the DL-44 you might be interested in.

That blaster is fantastic!

And, I got a burning question answered- where the "antenna" bits go.

I hope to be building one up soon- I've been wanting once since 1977.
