This is my online magazine for all the various projects involving visual effects I am currently involved in as they happen.
In addition to movie props/costumes or animation and digital compositing work, I'll occasionally post pics of my custom toys and minatures.

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow Atomic Disintegrator pistol prop!

I just finished up this Sky Captain Atomic pistol prop from Wilco Models.
Kit composed of two parts made of pressure cast resin. Being pressure cast means no bubble holes, therefore a kit with very easy cleanup. The only thing that needed sanding was the mold seams. After glueing together with a combination of superglue and Smooth-On's Metalset A4, it gets sprayed with Krylon ultra flat black. Then it gets lighty sprayed with silver aluminum paint to give it texture. Then it gets finished with silver Rub n' Buff and the accents painted with Testors copper enamel.
Then a minimal amount of weathering to make it look worn and used, aloung with a sealant to keep the Rub n' Buff intact.
