Projects

Where I share updates and progress on projects I’m working on.

Kustomized K-2SO Action Figure

I’ve been inspired by a lot of creative artists that customize action figures and have wanted to give it a try. I just so happened to have a Black Series K2SO action figure sitting around just asking to be customized.

I reimagined him as a futuristic traveling monk. Spreading peace and righting wrongs.

I’ll add some more ...

Tau Piranha

After a very long time, I’ve finally finished something.

A few months ago I bought a Tau Piranha on ebay. I always loved the design and wanted to make my own version of it.I don’t play the game and I wanted to do something different with mine. I imagined it as a speeder for a desert ...

BotHead! Update!

Here’s some new photos of the finished (except paint) BotHead!

I added his backpack and few other small details.

(more…)

Unnamed Droid

I built this guy with the idea of making copies in mind. My goal was to build him in multiple parts that could be put together. I’m used to making things as one offs, so this was fun to do.

For his body I used the cap (always with the caps) off an oversized pen my ...

P.O.P. Eye

Here’s one of the new projects I’ve been working on. I had an idea in my head of making a robot with lots of round surfaces. I wanted him really “bubbly” looking and cartoonish. He went through several iterations before I finally decided I needed to move on.  I’m not completely satisfied on how he ...

Next big thing

I was going through my parts box the other day and came across some really cool pieces that I’ve been wanting to use. Among them were a couple of tank kits. I started toying with them, trying different configurations to see what would look cool. I didn’t have any intention of starting a new project, ...

WarBot! Now with hands!!

On last update for the night…

My WarBot! is now complete. The last thing to complete were his hands. I had originally intended to use some Gundam kit hands but they were too detailed and looked out of place with the rest of the model. Since WarBot! is modeled after the designs of Ashley Wood’s WWR ...

Then suddenly, the light went on

I have been struggling with how to make the tentacles for my mechanical jellyfish. I wanted them to look mechanical but natural, to flow as if in water (even though the jellyfish would be floating in the air) and to be fairly long.

My first attempt was with green stuff. I bought the tube maker set from ...

The Osprey X-1

For lack of a better name, I’ll call this one “The Osprey X-1”. Just because.

I kit bashed this with parts from two Academy F-86F Sabre “Mig Killer” kits I had. I cut off the rear of both fuselages. I then turned one of them around and made a new fuselage. I had to widen the body a ...

Jake Parker Inspired Flyer

I like Jake Parker’s designs. I find a lot of inspiration in his work. I’m not much of a fan of straight lines and I like the fun, round shapes he draws. The idea for this was really inspired by his works. Nothing in particular but everything at the same time. Does that make sense? ...

Rocket Lobster

Yet another sea creature design. Told you I like ’em. But this one was unintentional. My daughter saw it on the shelf and said it looked like a lobster.

Inspiration comes and goes quickly…

This is one of my earliest builds, maybe it’s my first or second. I had inspiration after finding an old computer mouse and some ...

Sakana

I love sea creatures. Did I mention that before? The idea for this came from the Blue Man Group show of all things. During the pre show they had a couple of giant eyeball floating around the auditorium. They had flowing fins like a fish. My daughter and I were discussing ideas for art, and inspired by ...
