Fallout 4 Protectron Robot
This week a I made this Fallout 4 Protectron action figure by Daniel Lilygreen a very talented designer who can be found on MyMiniFactory.
For those who don’t know the Protectron is a robot found in and around the open world of Fallout, a video game franchise by games publisher Bethesda. Fallout is set in a post apocalypse world several centuries after a nuclear war that has devastated the United States. These Protectron robots had fulfilled many roles such as factory workers, emergency services and sentinels for the no longer present military, some are hostile while others are natural.
This model consists of 14 parts and stands proudly at 6 inches tall. I chose to print all the parts in one print with a raft to ensure nothing pops off the build platform, it took approx 9 hours and 45 mins to print, 2 hours to paint and approx half an hour to glue and assemble, A total of 12 hours and 15 mins to make over the coarse of 2 days.
This was one of the most intricate prints I have made so far but was a pleasure to make and wouldn’t hesitate to print it again.
Printing in progress, this picture was taken 3 hours in. I printed this on my Prusa i3 clone kit printer a cheap Chinese clone by works flawlessly after I modified and upgraded some parts.
Starting to assemble and paint the model.
Finished model! I am very pleased with how this came out, however next time I plan to use an air brush kit to paint with as you can see some visible brush strokes in the final model.
