Hello all. Sorry that I have been non attentive for a while and not posting anything. Had a life thing get in the way and now I'm able to get back to some fun things. I bought a 3D Printer while I was going through treatment and in the last week the wife and I have figured out how to use it. I am not from the technology generation lol. We have printed our first piece on the machine, a bicep combine from those shared here at the 405th. Here are the pictures taken of the piece. finish work ahead. Starting to print the other arm today.

For what I assume are your first few prints those are very clean, not really any notable issues at all!
Jerome would be one of my favourite Spartans so I'll be very interested in seeing how you portray him.
Feel free to ask us any questions you may have as you proceed through your build, best of luck! (y)

Thank you. I appreciate the support and encouragement.
 
A few parts painted . Lots of experimenting with the parts, trying for the right look.

A variety of colors. I use flat black to give it a sooty look. Olive green and matte or satin clear.

Few more pics as I make parts. Helmet is a culmination of three different helmets. Self inflicted issues with my printer. Lol

Nice having printers, well until you forget to check how much filament is still on the role.
No issues today

I've been trying to print in black and gray so that if scratched it won't be as noticable or look like raw metal.
