You can never have too many Star Wars props. I’m sure that’s a written rule somewhere, right? Right. Redditor lord_of_vader 3D printed Han Solo’s classic DL-44 pistol. Not one to jump on trending technology, Han used this model blaster in The Force Awakens, roughly 30 years after the original trilogy ended. Lord of Vader used a file from My Mini Factory and assembled it in Magics. He shared a new STL file on Reddit.
The 3D printing looks good, but the paint job takes the prop to the next level. It appears as if it’s made from wood and metal. The weathering on the body of the DL-44 really sells it. See a couple in-progress pictures below.
