    Thanks for that Franco. I'm looking at a plastics supplier now. They don't sell Sintra as such, but they do have foamed PVC (Palight). Can you tell me what thicknesses you normally work with? And do you use superglue with it?

    I'm just finishing up some UV glowing Nuka Cola Quantum bottles. I really like how the prototype turned out:
    Attachment 572680Attachment 572681Attachment 572679

    This one glows REALLY bright under UV light, and the final products glow even brighter!
    Wow that is amazing, you should really consider a run for those I'd easily be down to pay for one of that quality!

    Hey guys, I was wondering, how big is the Stimpak syringe do you think? I think it's something around 8", but wanted your thoughts on this x) Thanks!

    It actually looks more like 12 inches long when compared to the laser rifle. Keep in mind, this is comparing the "world objects", as you would see them dropped on the ground. The object might be smaller from the first person view, not sure.

    Well, yes, the scale translation to real life often has these objects far bigger than they would be in real life. The stimpak is actually a perfect example.

    Personally, I'd go smaller. Seems a bit too big in terms of size for the prop.

    Nice nuke by the way ^^

    And yeah, from this screenshot, it's more likely to be around 9"

    Yeah, I'd have to agree it certainly doesn't look a foot long in the first person view. Honestly, it looks too big in the picture that I posted with it next to the laser rifle. If you look, it's almost longer than the buttstock! Wouldn't want to jam that in my arm no matter how low my health is.

    I think the main reason the models are sized so big in the game is to make them more visible while laying down. Sort of an optical illusion. At least, that's my theory anyways.

    Yeah, I believe so too, it's like the caps tin, it looks rather massive when sitting on desks haha!

    Well I think it would be cool to make a stimpak out of real items, so I got myself a syringe, waiting for it now, I need to find a gauge that would do the trick now :x

    So I made this for Madison WI Comic Con and entered it into a costume contest. I did not win but I did get honorable mention, that's not bad for my second costume.

    Do you guys know if the gauge from the stimpak actually exists? Been through quite a lot of research but can't seem to find a gauge/connector like this :X any ideas?

    Thought I'd share my first Fallout prop on here. I made a Nuka Cola rocket bottle a few months ago; as well as being my first Fallout prop, it was also my first 3D modelling and printing project. The cap pops open and the bottle can contain actual liquid! A useless gimmick, but a fun one nonetheless.

    I also made an Instructable of how I made it, that also includes the 3D model I made for it to download and make your own. (also includes the PNG for the label I made in Inkscape)

    Looks really nice! The only thing I'd say is that I think the wings are slightly too wide x)

    @EmmaInCandyland Yeah they are a tad wide, plus I modelled the bottle to be slightly skinnier from the original in-game model which makes the wings looks more wider (also the angle of the image was taken from a low stance so the bottle looks bigger from the bottom). I may do a V2 in the future, along with Quantum and Cherry as well with a more accurate model once I get more comfortable with 3D modelling.

    I don't think the gauge is based off of a real one.

    No I haven't seen a gauge like this before. I would look at old pocket watches on eBay though. Mounted upside down they'd be a close match. It'd be cool if the needle was spring loaded so that pushing against a surface swung the needle.

    It's what I thought...Well I have found a model from someone which seems to be the perfect size for my real syringe :P, So let's hope it will work out.. Having it printed by shapeways..

    You can make a stimpak in game, so I'm guessing if it was real, they'd use whatever they could find. So if it's not a perfect match, I don't think anyone will make a big deal. As long as it's not like bright pink or completely wrong.
