Jeff's ODST build log

Well, I guess I about to take the first step on this amazing journey. All I've decided that this point is that I'm going an ODST build. I really don't know if I want to do a specific character build or something original. But one thing I do want is an assault rifle. I looked around for 3D models and found this one on thingiverse.

Just wondering if anyone has printed this particular model and what your opinion is? Is this a good model or would you recommend a different model? Any and all opinions welcome.

I haven't printed this one but it looks like it's pretty good for a small size printbed. The only downside for this one is going to be the number of pieces (loads of sanding) and the suggested print orientation (pieces on end, more sanding).

My one suggestion for this print is if you have Meshmixer or another preferred modelling program, add slots for internal rods for strength and assembly pins to help alignment.
