Ken Singshow, who runs the Japan Pony Convention, is a furry artist, and is a local friend to Ayano Harumaki, started work last year on trying to recreate the Star Fox Assault blaster as a 3D printable prop. He purchased a high quality fan-made model, but it wasn't suitable for printing. I attempted to help find a solution, but I was only able to work on one part of it (the little black nozzle at the end of the barrel). Ken ultimately commissioned Nullpotower to essentially recreate the model based on that one's design, so that it would be 3D printable. And this is the result.
The prop was printed, glued together, and painted for Ayano Harumaki to do a quick photoshoot, which you can view on Twitter. Here's the original post made by Ken Singshow. We'll probably see more of this gun in future photoshoots.
