    Death Star Hallway Frankenstaircase

    another fast forward to 2020 (erv' you SLACKER MOFO). Covid19 and shutdown had some good consequences as I worked a lot on my personal projects and decided to finish a lot of stuff while taking a break and hiatus from saberland. The project back pedaled for 2 reasons, 1) I needed a good weather...

    Death Star Hallway Frankenstaircase

    working on this in parallel with the falcon table, I need to put an end to the plastic cutting as my shop looks like a mess because of it ! all the lighting is now functional and tested. The warm white color was questioned but after testing several color T°, it was obvious that putting a day...

    Death Star Hallway Frankenstaircase

    [originally started mid 2018, finished during covid lockdown circa may 2020, and recently posted on the RPF facebook page] regarding this project, I had that fun quote from Monthy Python "Holy Grail" : - "Camelot !!!! " - "it's only a model" www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3dZl3yfGpc ("it's only a...

    BTTF Hoverboard replica (WIP)

    ]I opted for the ref picture on which the "red" couplers are rather rust / orange(ish), I liked the color and found a decent shade matching this in the Molotov rattle can colors I'm also very happy with the central purple box, perfectly hiding the battery and holding an almost invisible recharge...

    BTTF Hoverboard replica (WIP)

    finally finished. Some hard time with the central coupler (purple / violet part hiding the battery) as I didn't want to reprint after painting it with ****** art clear coat and paint that isn't even compatible with a double coat of itself... Primed many times, sanded, heavy coat of paint, still...

    BTTF Hoverboard replica (WIP)

    Fluo pink paint was delivered. More problems along the way as the border structure remains really flimsy, so couple of primer coats and a few spots to bondo. Squid marks remain but only if you put your nose on it, I overall like the result despite of the cumulated fail. Both my daugthers went to...

    BTTF Flux Capacitor replica

    finished the license plate this week, working with laser printed decals remains extremely hard for me, very stressing process for decals of that size... I ****** up the first attempt, not flat enough, it warped on the edges when I applied the 2K clear (glossy). Fortunately, the 2 part clear...

    BTTF Hoverboard replica (WIP)

    Not much "visible" progress this week since I've been in house maintenance outside (paint + oiling wood surfaces, pool, wall tops, shed) and added a primary filter to the paint booth... I coated the the sides on which I taped the lenticular film with 2 part primer, then sanded, painted and...

    BTTF Hoverboard replica (WIP)

    A lot of work went into this and a lot of fail too. Mostly the lenticular film I've used with the mantra "it's close enough to the real one plus I have it" lead to have the film not tacking well to any surface, whatever the glue I've used (despite I did test before, on the same wood + paint +...

    BTTF Hoverboard replica (WIP)

    Bottom line : I wanted to have some colors added in the staircase that leads to the basement, it's still WIP with a death star hallway wall panels theme, so mostly grey and white. I've added the flux capacitor there and as I was progressing toward my prop list that I wanted to build for display...

    Fight Club / Tyler's (real) Soap

    My wife is now making most of the household products we use (detergent, washing machine liquid, dishwashing, toilet cleaning etc) and I figured I would give a try to soap which we haven't made yet, a friend of us is making that as a hobby and we have a good stock. With the idea of "props that...

    BTTF Flux Capacitor replica

    Printed a few paper props and used the laser for custom framing. I enjoy ripping "protected" pictures from shutterSchmock because I think their policy and marketing is horrible, so I just help myself and vector everything in AI within seconds. The DMC engraving on MDF was really cool to see...
