I’m about half way through the Vigilon and wanted to share a progress photo of the finish I’m working on for it. There will be additional coloring on the main body to match the slide handle so the design should pull together nicely for a future-industrial look. This diesel punk with some color :)

The Skyship Chronicles – A Steampunk Adventure!

Hey Guys and Gals! My good friends have a kickstarter project that I think you’ll really going to dig! They’re needing some backing to help make the film and I’d really appreciate you checking it out. Your support, no matter how little, will really help to get this made. This world needs more steampunk and you can make that happen! :)

You might even see some of my weaponry in the film, that’s gotta be worth a buck or two, right? Lol

Shop update 4-24-12

This week has been a mixed bag weather-wise. Days of rain have lead into 50 degree evenings which is not the norm here in Florida. Humid and chilly is also not ideal for painting, unfortunately, so I’ve had to be creative with the drying process. This amounts to cardboard boxes damp-rid to eat up any moisture floating around the shop. It’s not ideal, but you do what works until the weather is more cooperative :)

With a secret project in full-swing, I haven’t had time to do as much with the other blasters, but rest assured that after Friday we will be back in full swing.

Here’s a few photos in the meantime, stay tuned for more!

Regards,
Brian

Sometimes you just need a grenade

So, in my free time (ha!), I decided to work on a grenade. Seemed logical at the time. I had some plastic grenades left from a project, so I paired them up to LEDs and a bit of epoxy clay. This is the result :) I think it looks pretty cool and I hope you guys enjoy. If anyone’s interested in one or a few, please let me know. I have a lot of other styles to try out, hehe.

These Rotator X8’s from Lanard are really popular right now so it’s giving me a chance to play around with more added bits and pieces. This model is apparently electrically powered, but I’m not sure exactly how it works. Looks ok though, yeah? :)

Thanks for the visit and here’s a few photos of stuff you’ll see more of soon!

Hi Guys!

So here’s a few photos of some of the things getting finished up in preparation for a top-secret project that starts in a few days. It’s going to keep me pretty focused for about a week, but I promise to post anything else that hits the workbench in the meantime. There are a lot of cool things planned, so definitely check back soon for details!

Thanks for visiting and talk to ya later! :)
