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.  ;-)

One and Done!

A first coat for the camo. I'll let it dry and see if I need to add some colors or if it'll work as is. I watched this video to get the technique to paint the ACR: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sp_XzTnBfR0 The barrel and suppressor will remain black.  Unfortunately there seems to be a  […]

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  […]

Is that a Glock in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?

Finally finished the Glock 17. I used files from TWO different Glock prints from Thingiverse. This one took quite a bit of fiddling around to get things to mesh together correctly. Hopefully the last mag printing now will fit right and activate the slide and barrel correctly.

In Case Of Emergency

Another fun little dark humor project.  

It was looking a bit lonely

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  […]

CTAF

Dave got a lot of "shit" when he opened his field way back in 2010 or so. A lot of the Austin players claimed "we don't need another field in the area", "it's just more competition for player turn out in the area". He got shit like, "his field is unsafe",  […]
