Since Christmas I have my own Airbrush pistol and a bunch of air brush colors.
I started to paint some of my “failed” 3D prints to get used to it.
After watching some tutorials on YouTube decided to start with a tank.
I piked a 3D model of a tank from Thingiverse (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1065360/) and printed it on my Prusa I3 MK3S using the GCodePrintr App.
After cleaning up the model I used the Airbrush and followed another video on youtube. The result turned out quite well:
Now I was exited to paint my next model. I decided to try a Yoda figure because there are instruction videos on YouTube as well.
Again, downloaded the model from Thingiverse (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4038181) , printed on my 3D printer, cleaning, priming and airbrushing.
Inspired by my son after he came back from cinema watching the new Star Wars, I looked for another Star Wars figure and found the new D-0.
Downloaded model from Thinigverse (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3559890) and printed the >20 parts and painted them individually before I glued them together. This took several hours, but the results looks great:
I will try some more 3D printing & airbrushing soon…. will keep you posted. Cu
