This is a model I originally made for daz3d and decided I'd try print it. Its the second model Ive printed so the quality isn't fanastic, I was still learning to get the printer going while printing these parts smiling smiley , so there was a lot of failed prints, I think it took about 6 weeks of effort to finish printing it.

This took a while to remodel so it was printable, a long time sanding then I finally painted it up the other day and its turned out presentable smiling smiley

Printed with PLA on an oremrod, I think the resolution was about 0.12mm for most of it...

Overall height of this model is 56cm to the top of the weapon.

Thanks Guys, im glad you like it smiling smiley , I found a few work in progress pics on my phone incase you guys were interested to see the before photos.

The blury pic is the earliest and what it looked like straight from the printer, its 8 peices put together with blu tack. I still hadnt printed the right arm and cape yet... the rest are after priming and sanding the main body afew times and just blu tacked the arm and head on.

very nicely done indeed!
How did you get the armor to be so shiny? is it simply the paint?
If so - I did not know there were paints you spray on, which would lead to such a shiney metallic surface!

cheers guys,

Yep the armour is painted with alclad paints...

first a repetative process of undercoating and sanding till the armour surfaces were smooth,
then applied a gloss black alclad base followed by the chrome.

theres afew youtube tutorial vids on the process, heres one if your interested
