Project Updates and MEGACON 2013


Newsflash!

This weekend is MegaCon in Orlando, Florida and I’ll be there with my son and some friends!  If you’re planning to be there, I hope to get a chance to meet ya 🙂  Although I don’t plan to carry an armload of props, I will be planning to bring a few things just for fun. 

Have fun and see you guys there!

Vera Vera Close to finished!


20121015-201007.jpg

Just a quick photo of the Nerf Vera custom. I just have to cement a few pieces and paint that riser for the scope 🙂

Let me know what you think, I’ll have the final photos done in a day or two!


NERF Pulse Rifle Complete


Happy Wednesday everyone! I just wanted to share a couple of the final photos for the converted NERF stampede. I think it came out pretty convincing, but I’ll let you all be the real judges 🙂

Thanks for following the build and stay tuned for more cool stuff!

What a difference some paint magic does, amiright?

I’ll have it finished up tomorrow do expect some finished photos soon!


N7 Stampede Progress


I managed to get a few photos while the sun was actually shining over the past couple days! That was an accomplishment, let me tell ya!

The stampede is just about done as are a few other projects. I’ll have the good photos up as soon as possible! 🙂

Thanks for visiting!

NERF Pulse Rifle progress photos!


Here’s some first photos of the Stampede-based Pulse Rifle Chris Glas has been building for me (hypercats.net). I should have it next week to begin the painting. It still functions and I’m hoping to have it looking epic when it’s done. Stay tuned! 🙂

Steampunk Rifle Finished


So it’s finally done!  Whew.  I lost track of the time spent on this one, but I couldn’t be happier with how it came out.  I borrowed a little DNA from Fallout 3 and Borderlands and then blended them into a steampunk theme that I hope will make you folks happy.

 I’ll have more photos of the gun in action soon, but here’s a shot from last night just to give you guys a glimpse of it 🙂

 

Thank you all sincerely for following this build.  It was a blast to get more creative with the add-ons and custom parts.  I hope to do more of this in the future 🙂

NERF Rayven Duo


20120214-002911.jpg

I got a lot done tonight, despite the cold weather we’re seeing here in the south. Each gun still has work left to be done, but I figured it was best to let them sit overnight to dry.

I hope they’re looking good/appropriate for their respective themes!

Heavy Blaster is complete!


20120210-022036.jpg

About damned time, but I think it was worth the wait. Hope you all approve of how it looks 🙂

Heavy Barrel Pulse Shotgun


20120202-134627.jpg

This project is using the body of a shot last and the stock off a praxis. The M16 magazine is a stand-in for whatever will go there eventually. Being a supersoaker, there is no trigger, but I’ll add one for athestetics as the build progresses.

Storm Trooper trigger guard getting installed


20120120-100521.jpg

So I finally got a chance to finish shaping the trigger guard. Now I just need to cement it in and add epoxy putty to blend the spot that meets at the grip. I’ll then be ready to do final assembly and then we can see just how mean this beast looks! 🙂


HALO style Nerf Praxis and Element


Happy Thanksgiving everyone! (Those in the US, of course, but we can all take a day to give thanks for what he have, ay?)

I’m working on a lot of new stuff, but here’s a few photos to give you guys a look. Let me know what you think!

Shop Update 11-16-2011


Hi Folks!

I’m just getting caught up with the holiday rush that’s begun so forgive the slowdown on posts 🙂 I’ve also had the opportunity to work on some projects that I’m not able to share right now, but hopefully I will after the first of the year. It’s pretty cool stuff so I’m bummed to not be able to share right now. I hope these photos will do until I get a chance to edit and upload the other photos still on the memory card! 🙂

Starting off, I’m working on a Nerf longstrike with a recon barrel, trying to make a cool steampunk style rifle. The scope is from a Longshot

next we have a Nerf Element with some screw holes being filled and internals gutted to make it a prop only. It’s strating to look a bit like something from Terra Nova maybe.. 🙂

Buzzbee Tommy 20 being done in a 50’s deco style, might end up looking like something out of Fallout, I hope

Stuff that I found cool: The N7 Rifle from Mass Effect 3 by Volpin Props


Harrison Krix and his team made this awesome prop for Bioware’s Comic-con booth. They made it in about 2 weeks. Incredible work 🙂 Have a look, there’s even a speed video of some weathering of another very cool Mass Effect gun.

Check it out here!


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!
