Printed at 60% - the size is good for my hand (adult male)

The model is sketchy at that size though as it not anywhere near solid - bits fell off it as there was nothing to hold them to the main body,
I wasn't sure what was support material and what was meant to be there. :-(

My sons happy with it though and that's the main thing!

We printed the mag but it doesn't fit - so I've ended up cutting the bottom off and glueing the end in place.

needs some post work but i think he is planning on painting it - so sanding and a bit of filling should be ok.

Any ideas on how to make the top magazine to fit inside? The notches don't line up to have everything fit.

The geometry is a bit too mangled in that area for me to do anything, unfortunately. i'd suggest either cutting the magazine to make it shorter, or sanding out more room in the magazine well.

Awesome model, however there are a lot of problems with the mesh of the file "Magnum 2". Mainly in the bottom of the rail, and i can't seem to fix them myself (lack of experience) I've printed the rest of it out so far, would be great if you could update with the fixed version. Many thanks!

I am having the same issue, almost finished printing the rest of it but when I try slicing this bit it just turns into a mess...

Thanks for the model! Started printing the barrel piece and I've got the rest to go but it seems rather large. Im not sure if is just because it hasnt been fully assembled yet or maybe my scaling is wrong but I set it at 100%. I'll have to see how it looks like once I've put it together but so far the detailing looks great. How long is this pistol supposed to be in cm or inches at your 1:1 scale?

Yes, the scale is 100% correct for in-game. the reason it looks big is that you see everything in the game from the perspective of a 7 foot tall supersoldier with very little real-world reference. so, to a normal human, everything seems MUCH bigger! if you'd like, you can scale it down to a more comfortable size for your normal, non-supersoldier hands.

Hahah yeah I took a look at the official measurements and it looked about right. Finally realise now why the pistol is so devastating because I was looking at the barrel and trying to comprehend what kind of monster round comes flying out of that. Around the 80% or even smaller if you dont want it to look as bulky for us normal mortals seems to work.
