Here's another print from Hoyoverse' new title 'Honkai Star Rail'. This time it's a model, print and paint of March 7th's polaroid camera:


It was printed on the Elegoo Mars 3 Pro before being primed, painted (airbrush+vallejo) and lacquered to give it a plastic-cast toy texture and finish.

I'm really happy with how the model and print came out. It feels satisfying to hold in the hands and it looks great. I'm still not 100% sure on adding the wheel to the front part (instead of the viewfinder-hole) but anyone printing that could optionally not stick that part on.

I also need to pick up some better lacquer. This one is a bit too textured. It kind of works for this piece as it gives it that rough plastic toy texture, but it would definitely affect more detailed prints. Any suggestions would be welcome!

Want to print and paint this yourself? You can find a. free download in my collections over on Cults3d or MyMinifactory

Who I am

I'm Blake and I like to tinker with things and make stuff. When I'm not programming or developing random systems, I'm playing with electronics, doodling bits of art, 3D modelling or sculpting and painting things or nerding out watching sci-fi or horror TV.

From 2001 I worked in the games industry, eventually specialising in tools to aid in the development of video games and their engines. In 2011 I left the industry and teamed up with a few other talented composers to utilise my knowledge to help build the company 'Spitfire Audio'.

I also periodically compose soundtracks for video-games and have worked on titles such as The Stanley Parable and Portal Knights. You've probably also heard my music in random TV commercials at some point.
