Hello There and thanks for having me,

I’m Mario, Engineer for Printing, turned prop and modelmaker from Berlin.

I Always loved making models and building stuff and now I’m lucky enough to call it my job, so lucky that ill do it in my free time as well.

Currently I’m building an Enigma I Cipher machine, and an Analog flight Computer and Ornithopter Pilot might have, but here I’m somewhat stuck in the design phase so unfortunately nothing to show jet.

Projects I want to do in the future are:

Indiana Jones grail diary, definitely my holy grail of props

Hamunaptra Key from the Mummy

The memory orb from Bladerunner 2024

Hello - I'm Steve. I came across this forum while researching a helmet build I've started. The thread is for an ACES helmet but I will be working on a Gemini helmet. NASA ACES Helmet Been a great resource!

I have a small basement setup in Northern Virginia where I am building a replica of a Lockheed A-12 cockpit. Work in progress.... All instruments (except for 3 temporary ones in the images below - to fill up a few remaining spaces) and panels either 3D printed, laser cut, and/or laser engraved. Planning on building out the side consoles, center console, and flight controls. More info at my Instagram site: @a12oxcartproject

I have a couple of Anycubic Kobra Maxs, a Bambu Labs Carbon X1(which I love!), and a couple of Photon Mono Xs for resing printing.

Really happy to have come across this forum!

-Steve

Wow that looks absolutely amazing and ready to fly
 
This is Uncle Al and I used to own Chisholm's Trail leather where we made very close replicas of all of the Indianan Jones holsters, belts, side pouch straps, etc.
 
Hey All.

I've been lurking here for a while, and finally decided to post some of my fun projects. So, I'll be doing that shortly.

I am very much a 3D printer person, and have been slowly learning Fusion360 to help take ideas into The Real. I'm fond of 8-bit things, and enlarg-ification. Giant Lego versions of things, Trees, Food, Bricks, etc. Something, something playing with scale.

Also been on a Dune kick. Currently in the process of weathering a Thumper - which I will post. Did a build of The Box / Gom Jabbar which I loved.

Great to be here, thanks for being a welcoming community.

Hi everyone! I’m not really new… i have been around in the shadows for a while and i’m not sure i introduced myself so… here we are again.

My name is Renato roldan, also known as renato3xl in social media.
I’m a story board artist/animator/art director in animation and video games, but as a hobbie i LOVE to build stuff since i was a kid and my grandpa made me a sword out of two sticks together.
I love sci fi ( star wars, aliens, battlestar…) and fantasy ( lord of the rings, willow…) and almost anything cool fron the 80-90s.
 
Hello, My name is Randy. I've been hearing about the RPF for years now and finally made my way over here. In my sort time on the site I've been very impressed by the length and breadth of knowledge possessed by the membership.
My interests are model building, model trains and recently building/installing lightsabers. But you can't really do much with a saber without a costume. So now that's my latest obsession.
 
Hi, I’m Jason. A dinosaur cryptographer who likes anything Sci-fi or fantasy. I relax by making ‘real’ stuff after wrangling 1’s & 0’s all day. :)

I’ve not made many replicas - but i am in the middle of building a replica Apollo DSKY. And I did make a wand for my niece so she could cosplay as Star for Staf vs the Forces of Evil. And I do like the idea of having a full size R2 unit, but I fear I may be murdered by the wife and buried in it if I ever built one.
 
Not a newbie been a member for a long time but just havent got involved as much, made a few purchases also. But maybe felt a bit overwhelmed. But I am more experienced now, have now mastered a lot, from 3d printing to props in general.
I managed a print company in London, UK, I can print on any material upto 8ft x 4ft in size and upto 5cm or so in height, so I love getting tables, metal, wood anything under which is great. I got my first 3D PVC printer around 6 years ago, then moved to resin printing straight after and have mainly used that medium.
Look forward to getting a little bit more involved and perhaps being able to help on some projects
 
Hi everyone,

I'm thrilled to become a part of theRPF community! As someone who is passionate about prop making, costume design, and all things related to replica fan art, I’ve been eager to join this forum for some time.

Interests​

My main interests lie in exploring the intricate world of prop making and costume design. I’m particularly fascinated by the craftsmanship and attention to detail that goes into creating replicas from movies, TV shows, and games. Seeing how fellow enthusiasts bring these pieces to life is incredibly inspiring.

Experience​

I’m relatively new to this field, but I’ve worked on a few small projects that I’m quite proud of. Most notably, I recently finished my first custom lightsaber build, which was a challenging yet rewarding experience. I’ve also dabbled in creating some small-scale model props from popular sci-fi franchises, and I’m looking forward to expanding my skills further.

Expectations​

By joining theRPF, I hope to learn from the wealth of knowledge and experience that this community has to offer. I’m eager to pick up new techniques, get feedback on my projects, and hopefully contribute some tips and insights of my own as I grow. Networking with like-minded individuals and participating in group projects or challenges would be an added bonus.

Thank you for welcoming me into your community. I can’t wait to dive in and start learning from all of you!

Best,

Ferri
 
Hi all! Been a lurker for many years finally decided to create an account to document some builds.

Have some professional experience in prop creation for theater and independent film. The last few years I haven't done much in that space, but I have been building a lot of cool stuff including fabricating custom bicycles frames and dabbling in insect weight battle bots.

Congrats on finishing your first lightsaber build. "you've taken your first step into a new world" as someone once said. What sound board did you use, or is it a static build?
