    I got this from a 3D store online and spent a lot of time cleaning up the lines and weathering to give it that used/screen used look. I think it turned out pretty good, so I thought I'd share it with everyone. I hope you enjoy!

    I love the rust. I have one printed out as well but haven't gotten around to finishing yet. What type of paint did you use?

    Thanks guys! I purchased it from myminifactory.com. As far as paint, here is what I used after priming and putty. I sprayed the base color with black metallic, then the Cast Iron in a dusting. I hand brushed the black grip sections, then a ton of dry brushing with the tube paints.

    Sweet! I just got a print of this saber and am hoping to do the same. Did you just sands it to get rid of the grooves and then paint it?
