New projects starting

Just a smattering of new stuff for the week. There’s more, but these seemed like they would be the ones of interest to most of you folks visiting my site. Vash’s Longcolt is a side-project and will be available when it’s done :)

Here’s the suppressed combo showing in the photo, but there many other ways to load out the gun including the 18rd “glow” magazine and also a 6rd mag that just looks cool, but not really fuctional for a semi auto. I hope you guys like her and she’s a rare one that doesn’t have a home yet, if you have any interest. Thanks!

I finally got some time to work on the Rayven and it’s really pulling together. Sorry for the blue tape in the photo, that will be removed soon enough :)

This will hit 80′ with stock darts when it’s done. I can’t wait for the next NERF war!

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 :)

Metal prop vs my resin casting.  I did a small amount of painting on the Denix grips

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.

What? No new pictures?

Hey everyone! Sorry, but no new photos yet because I actually took a few days off to go to Orlando for MegaCon. That was a good decision :) I’ve never seen so many people just enjoying themselves at one time! I also admit I saw a lot of firsts, not all of them images I wanted in my brain. But I digress… I ended up selling two of the three guns I took with me before I got to the ticket counter, so I ended up having some cash to spend. (Forgot what that felt like…heh). I ended up buying a PKD Blaster replica kit from the movie Blade runner, so although I’ll most likely sell it, it will still be a lot of fun to make one of my favorite movie guns. Some day I’ll find a reasonable way to get my hands on a M41-A Pulse Rifle from Aliens, but then I’ll have to pry it out of my hands after I finish it!

More stuff soon! Have a good one until then!
