    Not a prop, but property of Lucasfilms...need some help

    So, I freelance as a photographer and camera operator for a local studio. The owner of the studio bought a pile of camera gear and lenses and brought them back up to WA from CA. Apparently, some of what he brought back was the property of Lucasfilms and/or ILM. The items I'm trying to help...

    WWII Sci-Fi Experimental Nazi Mech Suit

    I don't think your design is any less imaginative. You just went a a different route with the materials available to you. Maybe I'm biased...I love kit bash and scratch built stuff and I am attracted to powered armor designs. I have 3 or 4 GB worth of power suit reference material, most of it...

    Netflix Movie Night

    I got my wife a Flip for Xmas. She's been trying to catch him on video for weeks. It's been raining so much lately his Mom's been driving him to the bus stop though. Even when he does run by he's hard to catch. We don't have a wide view of him coming so it's a brief window of opportunity...

    Netflix Movie Night

    What's behind the red door? :lol I LOVE IT Crowd! We have a kid in our neighborhood we've dubbed Moss Jr. He looks like Moss and even sort of dresses like him....highwater pants, etc. Every morning he runs for the bus stop with his head down and his arms at his sides carrying his trumpet...

    Netflix Movie Night

    I think the max in a room is eight people. I wonder what the maximum is for a private chat...probably the same, but if it's more there might be a way to link multiple viewing parties.

    retro style space patrol helmet

    Re: retro style space partol helemt I like the star burst and Bakelite knob idea. The half visor would have been a great idea too if I hadn't ground off the damn snaps :confused These helmets seem to go for fairly cheap on eBay so maybe I'll pick up another one and try out some other ideas...

    Netflix Movie Night

    My problem is that I'll get sucked into a series and then blow through it in a week or two. Especially if it's short seasons like Weeds or Doctor Who. Then I start trolling through my B list of "Meh...maybe I'll get to it someday" stuff until something good comes up again.

    Netflix Movie Night

    I'd be down with it. I'm faustomatic on XBLive. Pacific time for me...I'm in WA. Hey, someone said they didn't have it set up on their 360 yet...it's stupid simple. You download the Netflix program through your 360 and then it'll walk you through it. Basically, you'll have to log in on your...

    retro style space patrol helmet

    This isn't from anything, just inspired by 50s&60s space toys. It's a vintage Nesco Comet Deluxe motorcycle helmet. I think it needs a graphic across the front and it feels like it could use some more...something. Feels a little empty. I'm open to suggestion. helmet1 | Flickr - Photo...

    Work in progress: retro ray gun

    The longer I look at it, the more I like the rings. I think I need to make a tapered post site with a ball tip. I keep wanting to add more detail, but I'm afraid it'll lose that clean look.

    Work in progress: retro ray gun

    Thanks :) It's a Ruger grip I bought on eBay years ago. I can't remember which model revolver it was for. One of the Hawks...Black Hawk...Red Hawk...Chicken Hawk. If I can finish this without screwing it up I'm debating whether or not to cast it, which is driving me crazy since I keep...

    Work in progress: retro ray gun

    It's not a movie or TV prop, just something I started screwing around with because I felt the need to make something. The body is Renshape turned on the lathe, the emitter tip was a scrap Nikon lens holder from my last job, and the grip (which needs to be reworked) was from some other gun...

    Cuttin bone SMELLS!

    Yeah...tried turning a cow femur on the lathe to make a bone handle for a cane. Smelled like burning toenails.

    Simulating "gun grip" texture

    You mentioned screen mesh. I wonder if you could lay the mesh on the grip and tape it in place at a 45 degree angle, so you get somewhat of a diamond pattern rather than squares. The use filler primer to build up the thickness and pull off the mesh when it dries. The mesh would basically be a...

    WWII Sci-Fi Experimental Nazi Mech Suit

    LMAO! I finally met him a few years ago. He came out to Portland for Kow's first (and so far only) US appearance. You thought it was funny that I couldn't title a thread properly, you should have seen me after 38 hours with no sleep in Portland. I was as sharp as a marshmallow.
