3D-Printed Good Samaritan Prop Gun #Hellboy #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Stumbled upon this prop gun by Sysadmin Maggie McFee and it’s too good not to share! Originally just The Good Samaritan gun, she’s since added a display stand and incorporated individual speedloader bullets – the nameplate is a nice touch too.

I really do lament not having a Samaritan (aka Good Samaritan) in my collection and constantly kick myself for not having bought one of the Sideshow Collectibles replicas back when they came out. So I downloaded one of the better 3D models out there (thanks danonator and JerseyBeast) and, after tweaking the top strap/breach (I know, it’s a revolver, but it has a breach in the top strap) and some scaling I started printing it to put together later.

I sanded the print, but I didn’t really go out of my way to hide that it’s 3D-printed. That’s probably most evident on the cylinder and grip. But I did sand, rub down with acetone and then paint the parts with a hammered metal spray. That was topped with some flat clear coat. Then I weathered it with silver (plus rub down with my filthy paint-covered fingers).

  1. Hey! That’s me! Thanks for the plug, Nick.

    If you saw someone at the last World Maker Faire with a R/C tank-mounted Nerf gatling, that was me!

  2. You’re welcome!

    Haha – I went through my World Maker Faire photos, I don’t have one of your project but I do remember – rad!

    Thanks for all you do and for chiming in.
