Making templates from everything I am constructing here so I should be able to reproduce these parts once I am finished. Got a ton of work and tweaking to do still but thought everyone might like to see the progress so far. :) Hope everyone enjoys the pics. :D

Yet Another New Project

Lol, Yes thats right, I've got something else I'm starting now. This new project was actually inspired by a friend of Skip's (SPC in the links section) named Gene Ross who makes amazing clone trooper sculpts, (My Custom Clones in the liks section on the right). It looked like it could be alot of fun. I have never done anything like this so I rummaged through my Star Wars Toys to look for a droid type figure that seemed like it wouldn't be too impossible lol. The picture above shows what I have done so far, I'm taking the regular size Star Wars Action figure pictured and sketching out a pretty close scale up to 12 inches. Lol, sadly just the inside of the left leg from the knee down took a good two to two and a half hours because of all the measuring I had to do. Needless to say this is going to be a project in the works for awhile. Once I have all of the sketches done I can then use them as a reference for the sculpture I will attempt, lol, to make. Should be fun though, really excited about it! :D
-Ohh and almost forgot, gonna post some stuff on the wookie blaster I have been working on in the next few days. Found a new better way to construct it then I had previously been trying so we will see how it turns out. :D

Boushh Helmet Done :D

Whew! Done with the Boushh Helmet! This was such a fun build, I loved it and I think it turned out great! There are some places that are a bit off but thats from my glue and assembly lol, won't be a problem though, will be easy to fix when im fiberglassing and coating it with resin. :D

Also, if anyone is interested where they can find and buy this pepakura project check out skip's website link on the right, the one labled SPC. Hope everyone enjoys checking out the pics. :D

Boushh Helmet Progress

Hey everyone, this is my progress so far on the Boushh helmet, skip did an awsome job on this pepakura skematic. I'm having alot of fun with this build and I think its coming out pretty good, a few spots that I screwed up on but they will be easily fixed in the final product. :D Heading to bed now, can't keep my eyes open any longer to work on it lol.

Boushh Helmet

As if I didn't have enough projects going already, this is a project I am just about to start. This is Boushh's helmet from the disguise that Princess Leia wore in ROTJ. It looks like it is going to be awsome once its done, this is another file that I purchased from Skip, he is an awsome guy and does great work, check him out at:

I have printed all of the pages out on cardstock and cut out all of the to start the assembly. :D This is gonna be fun, will post an update with what I got done before I head to bed. :D

Walmart Clone Trooper Helmet

This is a project I have been having more fun with than going for complete accuracy. This is one of the clone trooper helmets with the voice commands that you can buy from walmart. So far I have painted the back half white, installed some red LED's in the back for the "brake light" as some call it lol. I have also installed blue LED's inside the helmet shinning down in front of the visor, I know its not accurate, but I loved it so much in the commando helmets that I wanted to add it in this one too lol. Lastly you can see me holding a switch wired into the helmet, I disabled the voice commands and wired this switch into the helmets circuit board so instead of having to press the switch on the side of the helmet to keep talking through the mic, I can put this wire down my shirt/costume flip it, and talk as long as I want and it still gives me the static burst, kind of figured out how to do it on accident and it turned out pretty cool heh.

Wookie Blaster Project

Hey everyone, heres a project I have been working on for quite awhile....well not really working on, I kind of started it and have gotten distracted and moved on to other things lol. Anyways though, hope to get back to working on this soon, this gun is completely being made from scratch myself, the picture on the left has the piece on the right that I am making circled in red. I started off molding the piece in clay, then I made a plaster mold of the piece and cast it in resin. I haven't done anything since, which is one reason it looks so rough still, haven't even cleaned it up since i took it out of the mold. Anyways, just another one of my many projects that I'm having fun with. :D

Halo 3 Flame/Incendiary/firebomb grenade

Hey everyone, this is my halo flame (or whatever its name is) grenade. Just about done with it, have some final sections of bondo to sand down, then another coat of paint and it should be just about done. I thought this turned out pretty cool, especially the glowing effect of the light.

Halo Sniper Rifle

This is another project Im working on at the moment, its the sniper rifle from the Halo games. Just smeared some bondo on it so it doesn't look too pretty atm but its getting there lol. Really excited to fit some led's into the scope section and get some cool glowing reticle effects.

First Post: Jetpack

Hey everyone! :D This is my first blog and my first post ever! Anyways though, gonna be posting some of my projects that I am working on at the moment and hopefully keep it updated heh. Wish I had some earlier pictures but will just have to do with this for the moment. First up is a great pepakura project of Boba Fett's Jetpack that I have coated in resin and have just started fiberglassing inside. The file was created by Skip for a costuming website/forum called the dented helmet as a freebie to all the guys there. Everyone should definately check out his personal blog as well, hes got some awsome pepakura files that he has completely designed from the ground up and sells there. Have bought a few can't wait to get started on them! :D heres his site: Also check out: Hes creating some really cool clone trooper figs, sculpting them out of clay himself, amazing looking stuff.
