A film student today confessed to making two handguns using a 3D printer in the first case of its kind – but claims they were just props for a project. Tendai Muswere, 26, printed a revolver and a handgun using plastic resin at his flat in Pimlico in October 2017. The Zimbabwean admitted producing a plastic Washbear revolver as well as a so-called Hexen Pepper-box handgun – both specially designed for 3D printing. He pleaded guilty today, on the basis that he manufactured the guns so he could use them as props in a film project for his course at London South Bank University. Police found the plastic pistols after raiding his home based on information that he was growing cannabis in the flat.
