    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:

    [​IMG]

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

    [​IMG]

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

    [​IMG]

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

    [​IMG]

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

    [​IMG]

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

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    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...

    [​IMG]

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

    [​IMG]

    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:

    [​IMG]

    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...

    I was only in the hobby for the last four months of the year.

    I modified my Rubies Supreme Vader with new paint, lenses, tusks, grills and mesh as well as some filler work.

    Did some work with my Vader belt including saber clip and weathering.

    For this year:
    - Satin lining on the cape
    - New shins and cod
    - Whatever comes my way. :D

    This year I made several Kyle Katarn sabers, and a 12inch Kyle Katarn. I'm a bit of an outcast fan. Hope to tackle a Yoda saber this next year of possibly a 1:1 Yoda. I've got a set of latex head, hands and feet just need to build a frame and get out my wife's sewing machine for the clothes. Here is a pick of the Kyle figure and saber.

    I don't know as I could say I've *made* anything prop-ish this year (other than some very much in process firefly toys) -- but this is a long-term project I've been working with on and off for the last several months. In fact, it's what led me to discover your site here. :)

    Anyhow, I've been trying to figure out a way to make a working copy of Mal's pistol from Firefly -- not just a revolver in a brass shell, but a working magazine-fed semi-auto. I always liked the look of the old-timey Civil War era revolvers, and kinda wanted one that was up to date. When I saw Mal's, I thought "what the heck? why not try?"

    Figuring out some parts of the design were a real pain in the neck, but once I tossed the idea of keeping the Smith trigger group, the rest came together pretty well. The design borrows heavily from Browning's 1892 rifle patent (which had a box magazine under the chamber) and the sliding bolt lock of the 1894. I'll need to put back the "loading lever" that was in place on the original concept piece in the Visual Companion as a gas tube though, rather then try pulling it off so close to the breech.

    The picture shows some old patent drawings, my sketches, some early prototyping efforts, Phil's wonderful cast of the original prop, and the '94 I borrowed inspiration from.

    It's still gonna be some time before I have anything workable, but eventually it'll get there. :)

    (If when I finally get a working model done someone would care to make an AutoCAD of it or whatnot, that'd be right shiny. :) )

    This year was a painfully unproductive year for me. With my divorce and my work that kept me out of the country or state for almost half the year, only a few things got done. I did manage to acquire a ton of pieces this year, so i guess that's pretty good.

    Here's the projects i finished personally:

    Korben Dallas business card:

    Gabriel bell "one hour padd project"
    [​IMG]

    Bajoran rifle
    [​IMG]

    Cobra head phaser from rodd.com

    Piece of the roof from the tyrell building
    [​IMG]

    Large Voyager padd, also from my "one hour padd" series

    Type IIIa Phaser rifle

    Mobile holo emitter

    Trill padd

    Serenity Money

    I think that's about it. Actually, not that bad of a list. Also not pictured is my almost complete han in carbo. But since I didn't finish it yet, I figure it didn't warrant mention.

    As for me i am working on the inside of vaders reveled helmet and trying to come up with an idea of how to fit the dom on top for the face mask i have 2 ideas one is going to be a nightmare to do with out messing up the face plate as well as the dome if i make a mistake and the other is high powered Neodymium Disc Magnets i hope they are as storng as i hear. i want a 4 piece helmet that is completely wearible so when you show it off you can have a friend (strom troopers or slave leia) whatever the case maybe take off your helmet piece by piece as you kneel.... showing off is fun
    oh yeah and i am also converting rubies ROTS armor in to ESB or ROTJ armor, so when all my work is done i will take pictures.
