This is a tutorial of my ANH DL-44 build. (Although I do not have a Han Solo costume I figured I would post the tutorial to help others). The entire build took a couple hours over the course of three days. I converted a plastic Airsoft Mauser. The 3D printed parts are printed by Just Some Nerd. Watney Props helped me with the assemble. I did all the painting and sanding.

The first step was sanding all the 3D printed pieces down and using filler primer (Rustoleum filler primer ). (This step took the longest). (the magazine on the airsoft gun has been glued shut). The airsoft gun was spray painted with Rustoleum flat black spray paint.

After I sanded down the handle of the gun (the technical term is escaping me atm) I used wood stain to give it the color. I stained it twice to get the desired color that I wanted. The handles are 3D printed wood.

After all the pieces were sanded, painted, and put in place I did the weathering. I have included some close up pictures of the weathering that I did. Adam helped give suggestions on what I should do.

None of your photo links work properly. Sad

You need an actual URL that ends with an actual filename like xxxxx.jpg for them to work on the forums.

Thank you. I tried taking the link off flicker; it always gives me trouble.

I'm not super experienced with Flickr, but here's what I did just now as a test that seemed to work. (Note I'm using a real computer... not sure how/if this would work via mobile) Upload a photo, then click the photo to view it, then RIGHT-click the photo and choose "View Photo". Then you can copy the address from the bar above, which for me looks like this (note that ".jpg" at the end!):

"https://farm1.staticflickr.com/971/27420007767_cd1dbd5afe_c.jpg"

Then use THAT address for your photo, in the normal way, clicking the IMG button here in the forum post, just like this:



(assuming the photo above is displayed, it worked!)
