    Apex Legends came out and I was looking for a new gun to make, something more achievable that my Quake3 - Machine Gun project. Looking around I found this skin of the popular Wingman pistol which is quite cool and ray-gun looking. Really like the way it looks.

    Still modeling the pistol but its getting there! What a pain it will be to print :D Let's see how it goes!

    That looks fantastic! Im playing this game too and came in here to see if anyone was making any of the cool looking weapons.
    Hope to see the finished pistol.

    I would pay a good amount of money for a replica of the merciless wing version the wingman...

    Looks awesome by the way!

    Thanks!

    The Merciless Wing has a bit more textured detail that's why I moved away to the The Death Ray :) Let's see how this one will print and I might spend some time to model the different parts for the Merciless Wing.

    That would be amazing if you finished the merciless wing saying it’s the skin I use. Another one you could maybe take a stab at but could be a challenge is the last spartan for the r-301.

    The model is finish! But currently not really happy with the handle, so I might redo that. Thoughts?

    Finally separated the parts to print and re-did the handle. Much happier now and its more accurate too.
    Now on to printing!

    Printed some parts! Tried printing in ABS.. the orange parts and all went well.. ABS is super nice to sand.. but when I tried to print the main body part.. it kept warping even with a makeshift enclosure! :/ Had to revert back to PLA .. the yellow part. Let's see how it goes.

    Putting together an IKEA LACK enclosure for the printer, in the hopes that will improve the ABS capabilities.

    Hey a fellow Prusa i3 owner, also loving the progress on the wingman it looks great. There are some great two part epoxies out in the wild that will reduce the difficulty of sanding PLA and paint really well. Made my life about 1000x better when I started using them on the prints I wanted to paint and make look like production parts. Also if you ever consider selling your STLs definitely put me on the list, looks gorgeous.

    Yeah definitely, the link is below, you can pick it up on amazon for dat free shipping. This being the RPF I'm sure others might recommend a different epoxy but this is just what I use. Its a little more expensive than other two part epoxies but I've had good luck with it. Dry times tend to be longer than advertised though unless you use a hair dryer or heat gun. I used this stuff to finish a open-able 3D printed pokeball, I just printed the shells in their appropriate colors, sanded any crazy rough areas and then layered it on. I didn't end up needed more than 2 thin coats before it was smooth and the print lines pretty much gone (.1mm layer height).

    Also new parts look great, what layer height are you using for these?
