Photos from the Shop 9-26-11

Welcome back guys! Just some phone snaps from last night showing progress on a few of the smaller guns and such. I also got my first LED working! Quite excited about where that’s going lead on the guns (mmm glowing lights..heh). Anyways, check out the photos and let me know if you’re needing something unique for Halloween or anything else coming up!

Photo Jackpot Edition!

Welcome back folks, you’re just in time for the photo avalanche! I got a lot of stuff moved along enough to get some photos. I’ve also included a few that are just starting the trip, but thought you’d enjoy seeing them “before” and after.

The Vulcan is probably my favorite for this week, but I’m really liking how the N7 Maverick is coming along. That should be done soon. Expect more photos soon, I kept a lot of stuff secret for now…mysterious, right? :)

Have a great weekend and we’ll meet back here soon!

Ok, with all the lip flapping out of the way, on to the photos! Sorry some might be the dreaded iP4 versions, now in “Low-Rez w/ bad color correction!” :)

One of my little squirt guns. I was testing out the water-slide decals made by Chris over at http://vaultlol.com. Check out his awesome Fallout props!

I think this one is Mars themed? I made it to test out doing chipping and ended up liking the different color scheme. This was kina what started all the red guns..plus I bought a lot of red paint. Waste not-want not! :)

Retro Mass Effect Maverick. Just for fun and still in progress

Photobucket

Yep, had to make some kinda Mass Effect themed Scout too

Going for a kinda “Covenant” coloration on this one. the perp color is a bit off in this photo

Just a simple brass squirtgun. I really like these for some reason..

Photobucket

All I can tell you is that I work long hours…and I’ve wanted to paint one since last year :)

Blue Halo-themed Scout with a lot of subtle color changes and whatnots..yes, I want the decal a bit (read: a lot) smaller, but the vinyl is very tough to separate when the pieces are any smaller

Ok, my clicky finger is tired. Hope you enjoyed the pics and if you like this stuff, please tell a friend. Or an enemy BEFORE you hit em. Please and Thanks! ūüėČ

“Vera” Callahan Fullbore Autolock NERF custom complete!

Finished up the last few bits on Vera and I think she would be recognized at a convention or something Firefly related :) Hope you guys approve of how the gun came out!

(The magazine is non-functional, but I like how it came out – thanks for the assistance and blood-letting, Dad!)

Progress photos..

Praxis and Proton obtained!

I hope you all are finding your own Vortex guns at the local stores, I know I’m seeing people posting on Facebook with their “early” finds.¬† I managed to grab a Proton and Praxis after work and have spent part of the evening shooting my walls with little green frizbees :)¬† I took a few photos of them in stock form so no shocking spy photos here, but I figured I better post¬†a few¬†just in case you haven’t found¬†better ones already online.

They shoot great and I think they’ll make great props.¬† Expect to see them worked into the schedule next week.¬† Let the spring and screw losing being!

 

So I really like the packaging on the new guns.  I expect more from the dart guns now.  I do not want to be able to touch the gun before I open the box! :)

The Praxis – the cocking mechanism seems to delay shooting the next round for just a fraction of a second, but maybe I’m just imagining things…still love the gun and it’s design. For the price I kinda expected some scope that would compliment the gun. Ah well…just gotta buy the big daddy for that bit of kit :)
Photobucket

The Proton – It’s small, but it’s awesome in my opinion. using the little side levers to load the disk makes me smile for some weird reason. I’m going to have fun with this one for sure :)

Bonus photo of some post-apocalyptic weaponry for a Fallout style costume

More photos soon – lots of new stuff :)

Labor Day Update!

Hi folks! Just a few photos of the projects currently under-way (more unphotographed, but I’ll get those photos up soon!)

The Vigilon is just about done, just waiting on the decals and the PDK is getting close in it’s Patrolman iteration.

Vera got her bullet mount on the stock and a pretty cool slanted magazine to look more like the source material.

There’s also a semi auto pistol with tac light that’s going to pair up with a pistol-grip shotgun for use with a Fallout style costume. Should be a cool duo when they’re all done. The last gun is a simple little disk shooter we all probably owned at one time, this one just looks a bit more dangerous :)

Enjoy and I’ll have more to share soon!
