Back to some Steampunk stuff!

Tonight’s photos are a mix-match of topics, but the one I’m really getting into is the Longstrike based Steampunk Rifle. I worked on it last night for about 3 hours and completed most of one side.  Embellishments will be added later and weathered to match the rest of the gun. The photos don’t show the recon extension, but that will also be painted to match the rest of the gun. I hope I kept close enough to the core SP colors to make the loyalists happy.

Enjoy the photos and I will have some much better quality shots from the DSLR in the next few days!

A gray variant of the N7 Stampede. I used a smaller decal for the N7 this time, partly to avoid the poorly located screw hole on the reverse side. Definitely check out the larger photos that I’ll be posting soon, they show the weathering and I think you guys will dig the look :)

A little weathering practice for a District 9 gun I’ve been working on for the past 3-4 weeks. I felt weird taking brand new plugs and making them look nasty

My latest TV Show “Firefly” Lemat pistol is getting closer to being done. I have more work on the main body, but the grips are basically done and I’m happy with how they came out. One photo shows the resin gun with the Denix metal Lemat that was apparently used for making the kit. The 2045 on the original is still visible on the cast :)

I’m making a gauge with one of the decals. I’m not sure if it will be one of these or the others provided by Christopher Glas at http://vaultLOL.com. Check out his sweet Carbon Fiber Longstrike he made a while back. It’s very cool 😉 If anyone visiting knows a source for cheap steam punk appropriate bits and gauges, please shoot me a message, I’d really appreciate it!

This baby isn’t going to get painted, but it’s going to be a lifesaver as it gets colder (yes, I’m a Floridian and 50F or lower is cold after hours of exposure, hehe.

My sincere thanks for visiting my site.  You guys make this all worth the long hours.  Without you I would not get the enjoyment I do, so thank you.  :)  I’ll hopefully have my kidney stone passed soon and I’ll be back to full-speed, heh.

Warhammer 40k Long Las inspired Nerf Longstrike

Insanely hot day today, but I was busy cleaning up the shop and finishing up a few things (guns mebbe?). Wanted to share a few pictures, but they’ll get the final photos as soon as the decals arrive.

First gun is a modified Nerf Longstrike. I added the barrels to the front for a buddy who needed a Long Las style gun for his WH group. I’m hoping he’ll be happy with how it comes out. The decals are in bright gold so they should look really cool withthe dark background. This was a really fun gun to build, so I may just have to do more body mods in the future…maybe on a Vera gun..hmm. :)

This next photo is one you’ll think you’ve seen before, but this is a twin of the red N7 Stampede I posted not too long ago. I did change up the weathering a bit, to make it unique hopefully. Just needs those dang decals. Hurry up USPS!

Thanks for visiting and let me know if I can help ya with any projects you’re working on!

Project updates 7-28-11

A Smattering of stuff from the past week. Sorry a lot of them are phone photos, folks, but I don’t bring out the heavy photo weapons when it’s 120% humidity :)

There a lot of things in the works, so I promise there will be some neat-o things to see soon. Until then, thank you all so much for the support and commission requests. I am truly honored to have such great people around me.

Enjoy the photos and don’t forget to tell a friend…or a movie producer. 😉
