    I always love these threads, and I haven't seen one in awhile, so I thought I'd start another.
    Currently, I am in the process of upgrading my old Marco Ent. PR. It has many inaccuracies, and I could get 100% accurate parts, but if I do that, I might as well build an entirely new PR. I've had this one for years and don't want to do that.

    A few tweaks here and there will help it greatly.

    Also adding a few modifications of my own. A more accurate looking magazine filled with bullets, a working pump for the grenade launcher, working trigger, etc.

    So what do you have in the works?

    Building a Church Model miniature from scratch.

    I'll post progress photos when I get the chance.

    The model is made of lightweight thin pressboard on a platform of the same material
    and is being made to show how the Church will look to new visitors since we hold the
    Church at a temporary location currently.

    I'll be working on a Viper later on, nice work on yours moffeaton..

    My Boba Fett ESB blaster. It's the resin one that was offered in the junkyard a while back. It's got some upgraded metal parts, but I'm still looking for the split plugs and box to finish off the stock.

    I'm also working on Luke's macrobinoculars. All original parts except for the lenses. Those are Gary's beautiful multipart lenses, courtesy of OdiWan72 (thanks again :D)

    I'll post pics later this week.

    If you are going to do a mag with bullets, a while back I worked with Matsuo to develop a "10mm HE caseless" round as used in the movie. His final product was a masterpiece, so if you want some good looking, screen based ammo contact him.

    I'm still waiting on my local airsoft place to get me a second magazine. I'm curious about this though and it might be cool to have a spare magazine laying next to my PR with the fake bullets in it. Is there a tutorial on how the magazine was cut down or opened up to insert the fake rounds?

    Working on upgrading/repainting USCM armor and the rest of a nearly complete costume I got a little while back.

    Only pics so far is of a resin VP70 that came with it. It was riddled with air holes and seam misalignments, requiring this:

    Dropshipbob,

    It was great to see that Marco Enterprises PR. I still have the cataloge and remember wanting one so badly but never had the money. Interesting to see how well he did at the time. But looking at his kit now... Well, you are making a nice job of it.

    I bought this Spinner kit from Monsters In Motion years ago. Finally decided to finish it after numberous false starts.

    The interior needs another paint job as the color is wrong. The outside is almost ready for weathering. But the decals came from a board member here and are gonig to make all of the difference. I hated those horrible "carved" details that were on the model to help you paint the details on the model.

    Well, working on 'acquiring' is the way I usually go. Right now I'm working on a MR Star Trek TOS landing party display. I have the tricorder and just received a Shatner signed communicator - BIG shout out to Starwarslover who helped this Canuck get this awesome piece.. Woot. Just need a MR phaser to complete the set....

    Greetings,

    Here is my current project. Just building a little arsenal for a private organization. A plot to overthrough the Imperials is underway. But you didn't hear that from me of course. Enjoy..

    Here are my current ongoing projects:

    [​IMG]

    CAD is done, now working on engineering drawings for the CNC vendor.

    [​IMG]

    CAD and drawing are done, CNC vendor will be receiving the order hopefully in the first week of the new year :)

    [​IMG]

    CAD is still a work in progress. New reference photos are coming my way today or tomorrow, which I'll be posting, along with design updates in the coming days, at this thread:

    http://www.rpf.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=96700

    And finally, today I'll be starting a new replica project. It's been Top Secret until now, since it's based on a HERO screen-used prop I'm about to receive from my second favorite Sci-Fi movie. It's been one of my Holy Grail acquisition quests for many years, and as soon as I've taken pics, I'll be posting them in a new show off thread. :D

    Ok, Ok... I'll give a little hint:

    What am I working on... Props and costumes for a Star Wars fan film, including stromtrooper armor, Rebel Fleet Troopers, X-wing pilots, BFGs, set peieces including and X-wing cockpit, and crash debris, some halo armor, and TOS Viper Pilot helmets. Most of my energy has been in making my own molds from MDF and a belt sander, and building a vacuum form machine.

    I have got several projects "in the works", but I am not actively working on any of them right now. Just pursuing my master's degree.
    I made a new scope rail for my E-11 blaster two weeks ago and I have been stripping the paint off the gun body and I've been installing lenses in a resin scope.

    Besides all the unfinished resins I hide in my "drawer of shame", I've got two blasters in the pipeline... A Denix Han ESB and an all-metal ANH E-11... the latter is on hold until I find a decent Sterling template... oh, and some parts that hopefully will arrive some day. :unsure

    I'm also anxiously awaiting an ABS80 TK kit. :)

    Taking my sweat time with this one, just enjoying working on it. I am also trying to locate the metal bits at the end of the rods on the gun as well, hoping to upgrade from the resin, as I will have to dremel off half the details on them.

    After a few suggestions from fellow members, pasted from the OT forum...

    I'm working on some custom Imperial Cufflinks for a few boardmembers that have been looking for them...

    currently I have a wax cut, HOPEFULLY will get ahold of my caster tomorrow to have them cast in Sterling Silver.

    Then I have a Cameron Oakley ROTJ Stormtrooper bucket to clean up paint and assemble :).

    Hopefully be getting a bumpy cap TE ANH kit in the new year and think I will go for a 'move along' replica (with ear caps). Hopefully with the great new photos posted by Keith and Jeremy I can make a pretty accurate job on it :D .

    When I was working on my Halo armor, I ran into a dilemma. Since I have to work outside, as paint was drying I was getting dust and flying particles stuck in the paint. I took an old office shelving unit, added a wider working top, and converted it into a drying cabinet. I added doors to the front, cut a 16" x 20" hole in each door, backed it with pegboard and put house air filters in the front. I took some old wire shelves and put them inside as drying racks. Then I drilled a few holes in the back and put a small bax fan behind it to draw air through. Now all my freshly painted items can dry in moving air but without the dust.
