I, mean if I cut this part off, paint these, add some bits and pieces...

Have you ever seen a piece of junk and said, "OMG, I could make a _______ out of that?" Let's face it. That's how the real prop guys do it.

I know these are not SA Ecto-goggles, but they will be good enough for my Ghost party.

This was the attachment for the old water softener. Plumber was going to throw it away...

Im in the same boat. My wife gives me crap about being a "hoarder" because of this. I guess two cardboard boxes to hold ALL my paint, brushes, tools and odds and ends makes me a hoarder. :p

And yes. These are going to be a splinter cell/ecto hybrid once I get the green LEDs and lenses in them.

Are you kidding me ? If I get caught bringing home one more old DVD or VHS player to take apart in the garage and sort into individual containers I might be single soon...

I don't know, junk is junk.

For example...

The other day I was going through some old boxes and I found a flash for an old Graflex camera. However I no longer have the camera so what the hell am I going to do with a stupid old Graflex flashgun? It's junk, so I tossed it.

A few years back I was working on 3 blasters at the kitchen table. Mostly unpainted resin pieces. Some of them very small. I leave the house to go get some smaller screws and some JB weld. While I'm gone my wife and her friend arrive at the house, deem everything on the table garbage, and throw it ALL in the trash.

I kind of flipped out when I got home. :) The first words out of my mouth "That's not JUNK! You don't just throw this stuff away!" She has not touched my prop stuff ever since, and has taken to calling me a pack rat, and hoarder.

And occasionally she has actually asked me before throwing something away "Can you make a prop out of this, or is it garbage?"

:)

I sort of have the reverse situation. My wife and her famliy are all pack rats. Only my mother-in-law is an actual horder. I have grown very cautious about asked my wife to save any type of items for hobby projects.

Ten years ago I needed a few Fuji Film cannisters for a lighsaber project. I really only needed one, but ended up using three as I killed two with practice attempts gone wrong. She told her sister and for more than a year family members were giving me bags of the silly things.

Two years ago she saw me nab a couple empty cereal boxes out of the trash as raw materials for cardboard mock-up buildings on my model railroad. Within a week she had acquired dozens of them.

Now if only she could scrounge up things like the MST3K 'Gypsy' Century car seats or R2D2's Viscount lamps in those quantities.
