Hi all. I have always been a fan of RPF but have not actually logged in and joined in with you for the longest time! - mostly due to hectic work schedules. I live in Manchester UK and work as a prop maker/scenic painter and art director in TV - mostly children's TV - it's great fun but can be quite full on at times - often leaving little time for anything other than the job in hand. Throughout the past year I've had the time to resume some old hobbies and have been thinking of various props that I fancy making from scratch. I've always been a fan of the Alien films (the first two ---- mostly!) and I own a couple of v nice pieces - I'll share some pics. I've also had a few work projects recently that may be of interest to some members, most recently 2 separate sets of costume pieces that I made from EVA foam - Thor and Zeus characters (for an advert) I was really pleased with the results and plan on making more. I worked as prop maker on the feature film 'SOLIS' a few years ago (starring Stephen Ogg) where I was in my element as I was able to really go to town with the various props - again, really pleased with the results. (some pics attached)
I won't waffle on any more - just wanted to say hi! looking forward to familiarizing myself with this brilliant forum and hopefully sharing some tips and advice. Hope the pics are of interest - I also have a few questions to ask regarding a few things I'd like to build. Looking forward to chatting. Cheers david.

Hello RPF. I've always been interested in movies and TV and props. I worked on dozens of student films while at university and even made some props for a couple of films. I don't dedicate as much time to making props as I would like. I first did cosplay in 2014 when I volunteered for Anime Expo. I went as Wang Fire from Avatar: The Last Airbender; I was even featured on the Nickelodeon Tumblr. I now have a goal to make all of Sokka's outfits. I'm currently teaching myself CAD in Fusion 360 to make the most of my 3D printer. My current objective is to collect props from the Netflix show Dark.

I have been stumbling across the boards for years building my Star Wars props. I have several approved costumes with the Legions, and always love building more. Currently I am building a second (more accurate) ROTJ Endor Proton Grenade (sometimes called a Bunker Buster) prop, and got some great inspiration here. So I think my next step is to document that build here. I am also a professional artist, and for fun I do photo-edits of my costumes, IG: OddViking.

Hello,

Just joined this awesome community! I'm a long time fan of everything related to Sci-fi and Fantasy. But my heart lies with Star Wars, LOTR and Aliens. Currently hard at work to give my collection a proper place in my new house. Also working on a life-size Vader build among other projects and seriously interested in screen accurate helmets and other props from Star Wars.

Can't wait to dive in the content, I'm a bit overwhelmed with the amount of information available here, but you have to start somewhere.
I hope to meet a lot of new nice people and ask you additional question in all sort of topics, when I've earned my stripes around here a bit more. :)

See you out there!

Happy to join up! Somehow I didn't know about RPF until watching a Tested video today (they are great!), so thought I would share my big ongoing project. I've been a long time fan of the Stargate movies and series, but more recently have gotten into The Expanse. I love how close it is to hard sci-fi, and how real a lot of the evolved technology feels. My day job is a robotics engineer, and I run my own basement shop for prototyping and fun projects.

Currently I am building a lifesize replica of many parts of the Tachi / Rocinante from The Expanse, focusing primarily on the galley. The centerpiece is a fully functioning spinning garden (3 ft diameter) modeled after the Roci. I've leaned into this pretty hard, reproducing 10 unique items so far. It's definitely a learning experience for finishing techniques, low cost workarounds, and how to build really big stuff in a limited space. Since this is a working shop, I need items to be functional while still being show-accurate. To that end there's a lot of cabinetry hidden behind cosmetic items. Hope to post a dedicated thread on this in the future!

Hi everyone! Excited to join your community! My name's Mike, and I'm new to prop making. Got a 3D printer a few years ago and started learning how to create my own models once I found out how much fun it was to make tangible versions of my favorite props. Big Star Wars and Star Trek fan, so most of my prop interests lie there. Lately been on a Trek kick, and got quite a collection going of things found on Thingiverse and things I designed myself (including the stands). Here's a few pictures. Still working on the screen-accurateness of my stuff but I try to get as close as possible just eyeballing ref photos, and I think this community will be a huge factor in improving my skills. Fun fact, the props in the pictures were not painted at all.

Hi my name is Nolan and I'm from the UK. I've been on here for a bit but I can't remember if I did one of these. I'm a model maker living in Buckinghamshire. My prop bucket list is a yellow barrel from JAWS, the shark cage from JAWS, the Orca from JAWS and Bruce the shark from JAWS. Bit of a JAWS fan. I like to stick to 1:8 scale for most things, space depending. Looking forward to contributing to the rpf. cheers
Do you have the bruce model available for download or purchase?

Hi. My name is Nicolas, I'm 43 years old and from Paris,France. I've been a Star Wars nut since I was six years old but also enjoy everything that is Sci-fi. I bought a 3D printer 2 years ago. and since then I made some props (helmets and blasters). I think I will share with you my latest creation, the WASP SN9 from Avatar.

See you soon

Hello all, my name is Steve, I've been a modeler since I was a kid, building scale model kits of cars, trucks, motorcycles, space-ships and aircraft. I have also dabbled in scale model railways/trains and of course scale R/C boats, aircraft and automobiles. I'm married to a very understanding lovely lady, I have three kids from a previous marriage and one step son from my wife's previous marriage. My prop interests are anything with the "Star" prefix, so Star Wars/Trek/Gate are all included. I'd like to include pics of my collection, unfortunately having four kids in a five bedroom house up until a few months ago, (the oldest two just moved out), I haven't had a chance to unpack my collection. If you can imagine, it includes many cars/trucks, aircraft and spacecraft. I also recently purchased a resin and standard 3d printer to help add to my spacecraft collection. Looking forward to seeing all the great work you have all created and displayed here!

Hello guys, I'm yyalp, I started wandering around these forums for about a year ago looking for Back to the Future props and Spider-Man costumes. I decided to create an account because I realized that interacting with the people here would be a great way of learning and researching

I am very interested in Spider-Man, Sci-fi in general (Doctor Who, Star Wars, BTTF, etc.), and cinema as a whole, propmaking is something extremely new for me and I hope I can learn a lot here.

Greetings... Jeff Farley is the name and... who knows? Lol! In actuality, I’ve been in the film industry, working in the makeup effects field for now, over 40 years. Credits include; Arena, The Blob, Babylon 5, The Primevals and Tropic Thunder. One notable achievement was an Emmy nomination for Babylon 5- In the Beginning in 1998. Though I am still active (with Lucky being released on Shudder in March 2021 and the still in post-production Abruptio), I have been moving towards painting as well as reproducing items from films that inspired me while I was a child.

Hey everyone, I know I've been a member here for a few months, but I forgot to do this.

I'm Chris, and I am a prop builder, cartoonist, 3d modeler, and animator. I have a bachelor's of science from the Art Institute of pittsburgh, and I do freelance artwork from time to time.

I am trying to start my own business building cosplay props, outfits, accessories and everything else. This last year has me off to a rough beginning, but I am very hopeful about this year! I will certainly be posting many projects here, and I'm very happy to be a part of this amazing community!

Hi Gang. I've been a movie buff all my life but only recently started collecting replica movie props. (I can't afford the real deal.) I buy most of them on eBay & Etsy, but I've made my own, too. I do painstaking research to make sure my replica props are as screen-accurate as possible. Here are photos of a few pieces in my collection. Looking forward to being a part of this community. - Joe
