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

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!

Shop Update 4-16-2012

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! :)

Added an extended barrel for accuracy, coupled with an early laser heating system to give almost instant steam power. To keep it streamlined, the water reservoir is hidden inside the insulated hand grip.

And it looks cool, even if all that stuff is completely untrue :)

So I had some parts sitting about and I decided to see if I could make a steam tank. This was just a fitting, but it’s looking just the way I envisioned it :) I think it will really be difficult to recognize this as a foam dart gun, when it’s complete.
