A280 Hoth Rebel Blaster from Star Wars the empire strikes back 3D print model

The A280 Rebel Blaster was used by the rebels in the defense of Echo base on the planet hoth. This blaster later appeared in return of the jedi but it had changed. The original hoth version was based on an STG44 like many star wars blasters it reused old rifles.

This model as been based on the STG44 and then added to much like the original but in a digital sense. I believe this to be an accurate reproduction as possible.

A lot of effort has gone into making this model as easy to print as possible and it will print on a 200x200x200mm printer.

It can be printed in ABS, PLA or PETG. though if you print in PLA i strongly recommend you run a 16 mm aluminium tube down the whole provided.

The model has two files for the nozzle section and the stock. one where you can print the entire thing, the other where you will need to source a 16mm aluminum tube and a 12mm tube for the barrel, and a 32mm tube for the stock. I used a steel curtain rod.

This is an early release, the files will be updated in the next month with a version that allows one to install electronics.

If you have any issues please do not hesitate to contact me.

      To be honest, I think this version looks alot better than the ROTJ version which is an A295 Blaster Rifle by BlasTech. Its based off of an M16 rifle and to me it just looks like it was slapped together whereas the A280 has a more finished look and like its one weapon and not pieced together.
