Well, the perks of knowing a couple of good people is that, evening when ones' own machine has decided to go horribly belly-up (my Imac had been acting up for days now, but soon after the completion of the first itterration of the Doom helmet it's now degraded from "slightly sick" to "awaiting euthanasation".)

So while I can't really do anything myself for the time being, it's always nice to see a friend drop by with some new goodies. In this case, Johannes -who I did this great ODST M7 with last year : be sure the check it out as it now shows a couple of pictures of the ready prop- came up with a cleaned up, improved ODST M6, based upon the much loved dan0tor original at Thingiverse. Johannes explained that although the dan0tor model was great, it had several issues which the original and the subsequetial remixes of the original, aswell as a couple of dimensional errors and missing details. And infact, stuff like 'the mag doesn't fix' was indeed reported but never cleaned or corrected by the original posters if I may believe the comments' section on Thingiverse.

Hence, Johannes took it upon himself to correct all the stuff he could find was wrong with it, and make these correct again. A short list of the most important repairs he did are (and I quote) :

- Slide: changed the overall shape, including the serrations in the back and the cocking indicator (or whatever that is supposed to be) in the back. Also added some detail on the top of it
- Front: changed overall shape to fit the original more (still not perfect though)
-Trigger: detailing Grip: slightly widened magazine slot lower
- Body: some shape changes, added details including slide catch and mag release button (non functional unfortunately)
- Laser sight: shape changes, detailing
- ..... and some other minor nags.

As always, services are provided free and as-is. If you bump into issues, just give a shout.

The thingy looks like this now :

A big thanks to Johannes who still somehow found the time to do this while working on his thesis. :D

As always, have loads of fun, use as you will, and till next time.

Kaween out.
