    M-16's on the Moon! Help ID this "For All Mankind" Weapon (pics)

    Yes. They went with Gemini gloves. They did this not only for the firearms, but also some of the smaller props.

    M-16's on the Moon! Help ID this "For All Mankind" Weapon (pics)

    A bullet does not travel fast enough to "melt". This is a myth. Take a look at high speed photography of rounds fired into targets, the bullet is not "melted". Deformation only comes from impacting another object. There is gravity on the moon, but no air. So virtually no resistance to the...

    Prop Store's Los Angeles Live Auction - August 26th & 27th

    Quite common to keep short jackets in the right place all the time. When you don't use them, you get the "Picard Tug".

    Sony Reon personal ac unit

    Remember, in a spacesuit helmet, it's not "hot" air, or visor fogging that you should be concerned with. You need to have proper Co2 washout to prevent Co2 building up in the helmet, because you will pass out. If nothing is actively washing out expended breath, then exhaled Co2 can build up in a...

    Sony Reon personal ac unit

    I have a great deal of experience with personal cooling systems, and if this is a traditional peltier device, in the past they have not been very efficient. Looking at the unit, it also looks to need a clear heat exit path, and inside a spacesuit, this would not be possible without some custom...

    Best resin for Jurassic Park amber

    It would, but who cares, you are going to sand it to shape. A waxed disposable cup would be better.

    Best resin for Jurassic Park amber

    I have had dyes lighten because of the heat generated from curing. I suspect that is the culprit here. I'm not sure why you would make a "mold" out of acrylic. If you plan on sanding an polishing the resin to the correct shape, why not just use poster board or foam core?

    Questions for those familiar with the "Loki Mask" replicas (1994 "The Mask")

    I made the Masks for the first film, and TMG is correct. The mask was created with a sunken "L", and after dailies (shots from the previous days filming) where seen, Chuck decided he couldn't see the "L" clear enough. So we made a separate coin with a raised "L" and this was added to the masks...

    Just finished, Apollo LM replica (and a couple of suits)

    This was built for the Stafford Air & Space museum in Weatherford Oklahoma. It started out as a replica of LM-5 from Apollo 11, but they requested some "cool" features from other missions, like the Kapton tape above the main hatch. They will build a moon surface under it, to complete the display.

    Making a mold, and casting a reversed/opposite version?

    OK, I could see how in theory that idea might seem sound. However all layers would need to remain perfectly flat when removed. Each layer will now have any edge angle reversed, giving an irregular /off-set stepped edge on your re-stacked layers. Not to mention the surface tension of the casting...
