A Shark Gun ..... Naturally

ACACIA_AVENUEACACIA_AVENUE UKPosts: 1,733MI6 Agent

Some time ago I was alerted to the fact that someone was creating 3D prints of the LALD Shark Gun, now after many hours of filling, sanding, spraying, re-spraying, polishing and ageing were possible, then cutting foam and covering with flocked material, most of these tasks I have never attempted before!!!

This particular prop has been on my wish list for many years, It's by no means perfect and needs a few tweaks, but I am happy with it and will suffice until someone makes a metal version.

    If Higgy wasn’t full of gas already, then I’d suggest testing it 🤨

    Those 3D prints are incredibly difficult to get smooth too, and the filler doesn't always take. How did you manage to get it so smooth?

    Firstly 'THANK YOU' to everyone for your praise, I am truly humbled🍸️

    Secondly in answer to your C&D, I used a filler called XTC3D, when mixed and applied correctly can give an amazing smooth finish, I also used wood filler for any real large gaps, but mostly patience and plenty of sanding.

    I just had another look to the model you have certainly used, and again.... congratulations! 👏👏

    You did a hell of a job!!!! Really really impressive! 👍

    If you want to additionally mess up with some blueing/ageing for the barrel, please do not hesitate to ask, I may help with some tips 😉

    Really, excellent work. Nice painting.

    I’d noticed that Shark Gun too and was considering getting one.
