First of all, I am not a world-class painter. My eyesight isn’t what it use to be and hand-painting these things was a pain. At the behest of my youngest, it started out with Pokémon. While I have 3D printed for years, I had never airbrushed or hand painted a day in my life. Below are some of the awful and not-so-awful results.
Then I moved onto some of the gear from The Avengers. I started with Mjolnir (Thor’s Hammer) because I thought that was pretty cool. Captain America’s shield was a challenge to print, but turned out pretty flexible. I could even throw it around. Iron Man’s helmet was almost a total nightmare.
