Hi there! I've just recently gotten into prop making through 3D Printing which I first got into for scale modelling and gaming. With printing I realized quickly that I could make things from all my cinematic dream come to life with greater fidelity than I could hope to scratch build without a proper shop. Since, I've made a replica props, a few toys, and lots of scale models. The floodgates have opened! :D
Happy to be here, and already blown away by some of the work I've seen.

Hello all! I just got into prop making recently. I'm currently working on four Star Wars builds (a Westar-35 pistol, a Sith Trooper Blaster Rifle from RoS, and two "Westar-88" blasters--which look to have been based on the Lemat revolver).

I'm also about to start a Lemat build using a Denix replica and could definitely use a lot of advice on that! (I'm looking into bluing it, installing the 'cavalry' trigger guard, and a 'Navy' trigger--I have no idea if tehse will even fit. Then, I'm going to look into converting it to work for airsoft if I feel especially bored!)

Hello there. I got into prop making around a year and a half ago, with a cardboard Mandalorian helmet. Since then I've worked on 2 big projects: a fiberglass Captain America shield, which I finished last August, and a Spider-Man No Way Home suit, which I've now almost finished.

Hey all! I'm Grant from Indiana, been a hobbyist propmaker and cosplayer for 8 years or so and finally want to start getting involved with the community. Here are a few of my better pieces if anyone wants to see (I'm no professional photographer I admit haha).

I’m very thankful to have found and now be apart of this amazing community of talented artists, technicians, designers and tradespeople. After spending the better part of a year doom-skimming posts and threads for replica/ prop inspiration without contribution, I figured it was about time to move forward with my new projects. In a former career incarnation I was a jeweler so I’m looking forward to fabricating my metal replica components by hand. Former doesn’t always equate to current, so that will be fun (or funny!) We’ll see…

Hi
Im Frank

Recently retired so have plenty of time to indulge my interests, favourite film ever is Blade Runner.
Hence just upgraded my existing Elfin water pistol blaster by purchasing a secondhand OffWorld M2019 BRU version.
Hoping to get some information and help in modifying and upgrading.

Ive no modelling experience, but with my hobby of axe throwing have taught myself to Dremel carve handles, re handle repair/sharpen and customise axe heads. All learnt from YouTube Lol

Looking forward to expanding my skill set and learning more about BR blaster and associated world.

Cheers

oh baby, that Tomenosuke-Syoten Blaster is on my wish-list too! Jeez those are SO pricy, even as used kits anymore. The water gun mod sounds like a great way to get one’s feet wet. I see a lot of “upgrade” components that you could add for authenticity, e.g. grips, steel barrel, LED’s etc. Keep us posted on progress. Good luck and Replicants beware!

Hello everyone. I’ve been a special effects fan since seeing the original making of Star Wars special on TV as a kid. My father and I were into a local magic group (not the card game) and seeing that special just made me realize special effects were magic trick on film.

I spend years growing up reading books and watching videos on the stuff and making my own props. I usually focused on Halloween decorations/costumes. Went to a few costume contests over the years and won a few prizes.

Got my degree in Radio-TV-Film but didn’t end up in that field (life has other plans as they say). I got into 3D computer graphics. Worked in that field for a few years and then taught it for several years at a local community college.

Decorating for Halloween has been something I’ve done for years (love giving the kids in the neighborhood something to remember). Won scariest house in the neighborhood the last time they had the contest.

I recently finished my Blade Runner prop of Deckard’s Blaster. I’ve enjoyed learning a lot from posts on the RPF and want to say thanks for all the helpful posts on here.

Hello everyone. A big MCU/Sci-fi fan here. After watching a lot of series and movies I have recently gotten into collecting and making props. Primarily Marvel, X-Files and Stargate. Probably more in future or at least as far as my girlfriend will allow me to go. I have a busy office job so collecting and creating props is a nice way to get away from it all and to clear my head. I have been browsing these forums for the past few evenings and I am very impressed by some of the designs and props. I am looking forward to posting my own designs here in the future. So far happy to joining the prop maker community and all the best to you all. Cheers, Berend
