    I say do it! If a person doesn't want the ribs, they can leave them off. If they do want ribs, then they can print them without wasting ink on the "extra" pieces.

    Another option might be a multi-layer PDF, however not all readers can handle these properly.

    RB has just blown me away by some pretty fancy super-detailing. I have decided to put all "extras" on a new page. So you will be able to choose the simple version or use the parts for the detailed version.

    Normally, I do not like to greeble out a component until I have built it once "as-is". I decided to break this rule with this component. Reason for being, I felt that it needed to a bit more "realistic".
    (*NOTE* This is one of the components that @Revell-Fan was referring to.)

    Here is the spine that goes on the back of the handle (along with the component that I made earlier).

    Here is the rest of the detail for the barrel itself.
    IMAG5262.jpg IMAG5263.jpg

    Here is the front handle.
    IMAG5264.jpg IMAG5265.jpg

    The front handle is attached to the forward stock.
    IMAG5266.jpg

    The connecter pieces are attached.
    IMAG5267.jpg IMAG5268.jpg IMAG5269.jpg

    The weapon is now one single piece.
    IMAG5270.jpg IMAG5271.jpg

    All I have to do now is attach the details and greeble, and make the stand.

    So please stay tuned to the "FREEDOM NETWORK" for the latest updates on this project!

    Excellent work @Rhaven Blaack on the build! Love the detailing. And kudos to @Revell-Fan for making a great blaster. If I see any of my neighbors eating mice or wearing old-lady style space sunglasses I'm going to need on of these!:eek:

    Thank you for the kind words and compliments.
    @bgt01 You can also use armor piercing rounds to take out those lizards. Make certain to aim for the head though!

    Here is the stand.
    As you can see, I have raised the lettering and symbols by (about) 0.5 mm thick.
