Back to some Steampunk stuff!


Tonight’s photos are a mix-match of topics, but the one I’m really getting into is the LongstrikeĀ based SteampunkĀ Rifle. I worked on it last night for about 3 hours and completed most of one side.Ā  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 N7Ā Stampede. I used a smaller decal for the N7Ā this time, partly to avoid the poorly located screw hole on the reverse side. Definitely check out theĀ larger photos that I’ll be posting soon, they show the weathering and I think you guys will dig the look šŸ™‚

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” LematĀ 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 DenixĀ metal Lemat that was apparently used for making the kit. The 2045 on the original is still visible on the cast šŸ™‚

I’m making a gaugeĀ with one of the decals. I’m not sure if it will be one of these or the others provided by Christopher GlasĀ at http://vaultLOL.com. Check out his sweet Carbon Fiber LongstrikeĀ he made a while back. It’s very cool šŸ˜‰ If anyone visiting knows a source for cheap steam punkĀ 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 50FĀ or lower is cold after hours of exposure, hehe.

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