Saw this great thread idea on starshipmodeler. Makes me wonder where I found time do do all this stuff. It was a busy year, full of more commission work than I ever thought possible, and a lot of it was for licensed companies, which is pretty amazing and cool. Along the way I got married, bought and moved into a house, licensed a small handful of MaK kits at the Tokyo Wonderfests, and carved some pumpkins.

This year, I made:

MaK Scout Flier (still need to weather)
MaK Eggeater (still need to weather)
Blade Runner PKD 1 (x5)
Blade Runner PKD 2
Star Trek TOS Phaser Rifle
Studio Scale Y-Wing (x2)
Paint Deco for AT-AT (w/snow) (x2)
33" Nautilus (Almost done)
Studio Scale BSG Viper (x2)
Studio Scale BSG Raider (x2)
Studio Scale TIE Fighter (x2)
Leia ROTJ blaster (ANH converted)
Orb of Thesula box sculpt and paint master x2
Buffy Palz series 3 sculpts (6 figs, plus variantheads, accessories, and snake mayor pieces)
Luke's Macrobinoculars
Serenity Money
Mal's pistol (cleaned the cast and painted x4)
Plus a bunch of stuff I can't talk about until 2006.

Out of all these, the only things that I did "for me":
MaK Scout Flier (still need to weather)
MaK Eggeater (still need to weather)
Leia ROTJ blaster (ANH converted)
Luke's Macrobinoculars
Serenity Money

Buuut, I have a crud-load of kits that I didn't have at the start of 2005.

Viva resin.

"What did you make this year?"

enough to cover the bills, buy a boat, and take on a child.... :)

Seriously- Not much.. haven't had time.

Finished a ROTJ Luke saber for my aunt's Christmas gift . She'd been asking for one I think for 3 yrs now.. and then, the kicker wasn't happy with it because it didn't light up and make sounds like my MR F/X... I'm not bitter. (wheres that sarcasim font?)

bought a few things.. but just didn't work on much.

I'm not a prop builder, so I don't have a long list of items like you guys. But I did make this in 2005.

(Just the mask--the suit's four years old.)

Slow for me this year.

Built 6 hardware sabers , including a mini Graflex for my daughter:)

Assembled , painted and weathered a Armor FX Stormtrooper helmet , that had been in a box for about 5 years.

Built about 15 Vader belt boxes.

And started making my own Vader armor from scratch. 98% done :D

And finally converted my Graflex three cell , to a ESB.


Now things I started and never finished is a long,long list

Not a very productive year for me, work-wise - no film work this year, so I had to scrounge around for other work... had to diversify a bit - did some industrial pattern making and a little toy prototyping...

Had plenty of time for personal projects, but I wasn't too terribly productive there either - guess I'm just plain lazy :lol

Here's what I did do though...

I did a custom Lobster Johnson figure conversion:



The character is from the mind of Hellboy creator Mike Mignola - sort of a 1930's - 1940's crime fighter...



My take was definitely stylized, using a 10" Mattel Justice League Animated Flash figure:



I also did another Hellboy comic book prop - a 16th century Romanian alchemist's pendant, from the miniseries "Almost Colossus"



Then for the custom lightsaber contest this year I did the Doc Ock saber:



And then I returned to the custom figure conversions - this time a Hellboy conversion using a 10" Mattel Justice League Animated Batman figure:











After that, I started on Emperor Zombie's medallion, from the brilliant and absurdly funny Mike Mignola comic "The Amazing Screw-On Head" - I got so far as molding it, but I still haven't cast one yet...



I just recently finished painting a fan-made comic Hellboy bust:



And here are a couple things that I've had in the works for a bit, and am still tinkering with - a sheath for the DUNE Crysknife that I used to offer:



And a reconstruction project on another DUNE prop - the so called "Tarpel gun." The upper piece is part of the original pattern from the film production, which I borrowed from a friend - I scratch-built the grip section and will be making the thing a whole again, after I make a resin casting of the original piece...
