    Propatorium - [MN] Marscon, March 1-3, 2019

    Hey Propkids, only a couple days to go! Still plenty of time to fire up your tauntaun or strap your snowspeeder on and head to Marscon! Seems it won't be tropical. And reminds me I need to get a Snowtrooper outfit together some year. But the con takes place inside, so we'll be fine. Looking...

    Propatorium - [MN] Marscon, March 1-3, 2019

    Hey, Prop Dudes and Dudettes. Marscon, and the Marscon Propatorium, will be happening in the next month and a half. (MarsCon 2019: "Legends In Our Own Mind") And for the last 11, 12, not sure how many years, a small intrepid band of mostly mid-western prop builders and collectors have been...

    The CAD & 3D Printing eBook Bundle By Make Magazine for $19.99, thru October 17

    If a person has internet, it seems like it should be deliverable in Italy. I don't think we've managed to start an ebook trade war yet.... but I haven't checked the news in over 5 minutes, so anything is possible. I would guess that if you can process the order, the files should be...

    Vader Black Series helmets on sale for $49 at my local Wally World

    Where do they have them in the store? Most Walmarts are big... I imagine the cheap ones would be in the Clearance aisle, but where were they before? Toys? Gotta check some stores...

    MST3K - Tom Servo engine, printable 3D model

    That print does look pretty sweet! Is the model still downloadable, or only available as prints from Shapeways? I'm not seeing a download option.

    8d8 smelter droid

    That is pretty friggin' sweet! I've been kinda interested in that dude for awhile. What did you make him from? I was always thinking of mostly styrofoam (coated) and PVC pipes. With lots of other bits and details.

    Sewing question - removing stitches and putting in blind hems (Star Trek TOS)

    So there's no one here who can sew better than me? :D Come now, you're being too modest! I've added some pictures to maybe help explain things better. The first 2 pics are of the bottom of the shirt, one showing more of the interior than the other. The 3rd shows the top portion, unzipped...

    TLJ X-Wing Helmet padding made from Eva Foam? Please look!

    You're talking about the dark area in the back of the helmet on the right? I'm not sure what that is; it doesn't quite look like EVA foam to me. BUT, I do like the idea of using foam. The Hasbro helmet is really snug on me. I can either wear the removable fabric helmet liner with fake...

    Sewing question - removing stitches and putting in blind hems (Star Trek TOS)

    I picked up a classic Trek red shirt and pants on ebay. All in all, they look really good. Not as good as Anovos (I've worn an Anovos Trek shirt before), but waaay cheaper. The pants have a nice sparkle in them. The chevron isn't as good as the ones Katarra and others sell, and the rank...

    Star Trek: The Original Series "Mirror Mirror" Insignia

    Another excellent Trekish resource is http://www.trekpropzone.com/forum. Annoyingly, you have to register to even be able to view the threads ("Why should I bother registering if I don't know if it's even worth it?" Yeah, that's kinda dumb.). It is a really great resource, though. Also...

    Star Trek TOS Offensive/Defensive Ray Gun - Think Jedi's next work in progress

    That is friggin' cool! Always liked that one. A few years ago, I picked up some Easter egg candy holder things at Walgreens, and also some giant plastic Christmas lights at Menards that had a pretty good shape. I was gonna cut them up, glue, putty, sand.... They're still waiting for that. ;)

    Rubies costume phaser (TOS) question.

    So, what's the question? I don't see a question. I've never seen the orange and white ones before. They seem to be the same phaser, just with one hideous paint scheme instead of the other hideous paint scheme. I have had several of the blue and white ones, and years ago they would have been...
