Deeper into the Dark Side!

I have sunk even further to the dark side and have stepped into the world of Resin 3D Printing. God help me now! Four hours on the first "test" print. OK! Here is the first official DC Resin Print. It was done with Elegoo grey Photopolymer Resin, sliced with Chitubox and printed on the  […]

"Taking Care of Business and Working Overtime"

Woo-hoo, the 3D printers are back online! Been embroiled on a server project all month creating a 3D Virtual World. I moved some hardware around put the print server on a NUC with a 256GB SSD. (From one with two 2TB SSDs) So yeah, the migration was a bit of a headache. Fortunately, I saved my config  […]

Goliath Revisited

With the new airbrush I decided to revisit the Goliath. The originally planned Digital Camo was a bust. The stencils bled too much. But I have to say, I've got more done and used so much less paint in just an hour with this shittin' little $20 airbrush than I have in all the months I've been  […]

New Airbrush!

After my debacle with the airbrush I "ordered" from Amazon, they sent me a 100foot LED Light Strip and a Dumpster Fire piggy bank. WTF??? Anyhow, I kept the LED lights, got them around my workshop. Really cool when they get going with the music. So, I decided that I was going to find an  […]

Got the SG-1 Vibes going!

Started on the P90. All together both body parts took about 48 hours to print. I have the upper receiver printing now. Going for the Triple Rail version.   I think after this I'll do a Walther PPK, WW2 Luger and MP40. Get the Classic German collection going.  ;-)

Baby Glock be Done!

Painted and mounted. Just gotta let the last coat of matte clear coat dry and she's all ready! This was a tricky one. A lot of the components were modeled so there were a BUNCH of little pieces. I had to redesign the slide spring and follower though. The original was just too flimsy and weak. It  […]

Bushmaster ACR aka Magpul "Masada"

Cruising right along with the ACR. The silver PLA kinda gives it that Machined Aluminum look.

Baby Glock - G26

Finally got it all printed save a couple of internal parts for the slide. I ended up reprinting the Frame and Slide. I was just not happy with the initial quality and the way the trades engraved. So I went into 3DS Max and added the trades. I TRIED to get a much higher resolution where the trades  […]

Kablammo!

Thar she is, all painted and mounted. Ain't she a beauty?      

In Case Of Emergency

Another fun little dark humor project.  

It was looking a bit lonely

While I've been working on the "Blooper" I whipped up a little sumptin' sumptin' to to dress up my M4.      Next step is to prime and paint it.

Boom Boom Wall

I know I had designed the display stand for the "Blooper" but when I showed my Dad (Who's a crusty old VietNam SoG vet) he got a real charge out of it. So I'm going to do up another one, get some more Rock White and finish the display stand. Then I'll give it to him for his Garage/Man  […]

"Bloop Bloop"

All of the mechanical parts are done. Printing out the Butt Plate and Stock next. Have Nikki put on a nice coat of Walnut Stain on the stock and she'll be done. I DID have a working trigger assembly. However when I used some CA glue on the trigger guard the glue ran into the trigger and now it is  […]

Assembled Goliath Base Coat

Just a bit of touch-up here and there, let it dry and I should be able to apply the first layer of stencils.  I think I do need to find a good primer. Not sure if it's that I'm handling it a bit too soon or the Army Painter paint isn't adhering the best without a primer.    

Goliath Base Coat

I've got my base coat down. I'm going to do a traditional color camo but in a digital. I'm also going to try a different technique. Layering sticky stencils for the colors. Base coat of matte black, add some stencils then a coat of brown, rinse repeat for green. I'll see how this works and see if I  […]
