    Dredd 2012 Lawgiver II functional build

    Good to hear you're having a bash too. It'll be interesting to see how the VR module gets on. Yeah the OLED display looks like the broken-out version of mine. Same SSD1305 driver. I'm assuming with that extensive board count that you're not keeping any active mechanism inside. Obviously my...

    My District 9 inspired Nerf Maverick mod

    Hey JMO, great work! I think you really nailed the aesthetic. Any reason not to remove the NERF logos and safety warnings? Other than that, lovely.

    Cheers. No worries I had some 0.4mm leaded solder, a reasonably useable stereo microscope, liquid flux and braid. Job's a good 'un. Works great, albeit with some ghosting due to running the 12v line at 5v for testing...

    Awesome! My first ever self designed PCBs are here... The FPC connectors line up nicely, which was a slight worry Time for some fiddly soldering.

    I love the skeleton hand bottle! (I just googled for the competition, found your entry in the runners up) Welcome aboard.

    Blade Runner Collection(Deckard drawing)

    Super cute! Looks approx half scale, maybe a hair under. Remember that means it's an eighth of the volume, hence why it'll feel super tiny.

    Nerf Gun Props? YES!

    That is excellent Vim! I love that paintjob. Any intention to slightly weather in the "graffiti"? Love the rust and the uber-distressed leather. Out of interest, what you you use for priming? I know some folks use Krylon Fusion, but I'd like to find something I can airbrush on.

    So after a bit of weathering and dry-brushing, I turned to the last bit of outstanding business. On the hero weapons, the slide cover has a couple of rivets/domed fixings that would appear to be holding the grips in place. These were left as empty sockets on the models I used as my base, so I...

    Thanks man. Yeah, I did think about it for a while early on. I didn't think of seeing what MikroE had, I looked at the EasyVR from VeeAr. Identical form factor, but almost twice the price. I suspect either would be hit and miss IRL, so I decided not to go for it. I may pick up one of those...

    Thanks! Hey Slo-mo, that gives me an idea...

    DHD Original prop from Stargate : Renovation

    I could be being too harsh, since you've only got around 600 LEDs. The downsides of NeoPixels are the 800kHz data rate, which can get tricky to keep up with lower spec boards, occasional glitches if you're using interrupts and the 400Hz refresh rate. But in your application I guess you won't be...

    DHD Original prop from Stargate : Renovation

    This looks awesome! Just wondering, the 4x4 LED board you show is actually a "NeoPixel" style, not the SPI driven "DotStar" type. The NeoPixel boards are easy/cheap to find, but are pretty terrible for large arrays. I was wondering, have you found some good DotStar 4x4 versions?

    Dredd 2012 Lawgiver II functional build

    Interesting. Yes, the 1+ at Makespace could have laser troubles, I'll see if anyone else has had problems recently. I suspect also the resin I used was some fairly old stuff, looking at the version number. The sliding peel mechanism on the 2 makes so much more sense than the tilting / tearing...

    Dredd 2012 Lawgiver II functional build

    Yeah, I think a Form 2 would have had no problem with the part. The Form 1+, with possibly slightly tired grey resin just made a disaster. Everything ended up stacked tightly on the build window. Took a while to clean it off, at which point my patience to try again was gone. I was very happily...

    What to do with this.....Colt Peacemaker!!

    Yeah. If it's anything like my Bruni 92F blanker then it'll be cast zinc (pot metal), in this case chromed.
