August 2017 UFO Sightings in the Workshop

I'm doing a terrible job on the bloggage front, but in the workshop, stuff is definitely going on.  So just to make sure you don't think I'm slacking, here's this month's round-up of Un-Finished Objects around the shop...

First off, there's the E-22 heavy blaster rifle carried by the Scarif "shoretrooper" stormtroopers in Rogue One.  At this point I've finished prototyping and molding and I've cast a complete rifle.  Here it is in black primer and waiting for a real paintjob:

While I've been tinkering with that, I've also been working on the helmet of the Goddess Thor:

Chrome Helmet Face

The wings are cast separately, so I'm keeping them separate until I'm finished painting them:
Chrome Ears 2

Work also continues on the T-60 Power Armor from Fallout 4:

I still have to prototype the rubber parts and work out the rigging for the hands, but for now I've been stalled for a moment while I experiment with different paint schemes:
Family Portrait 1

The other day I decided to spend a few minutes on some sewing projects.  Among other things, I made a pocket:
Hip Pouch Test Fit

So now I guess I've taken the flametrooper project off of the backburner:

Finally, because I had the 3D printers sitting around with nothing else to do, I cranked out a Covenant Carbine from the Halo video games:
Carbine Test Fit 1

So there's still a steady stream of prototyping, preparation, molding, casting, sewing, design, cleanup, painting, and more going on.  Sooner or later I'll do some proper writing too.

Stay tuned...
