SWIPE! <— Finally finished my Marksman’s Bolt-Action Pipe Sniper Rifle.
I’ve proved once again that I cannot do moderate or light rust. Can’t do it.
This is my first scratch-built rifle without following a tutorial, and my first time building with PVC sheets. I templated it out in Adobe Illustrator, made the “wood” and “leather straps” out of EVA foam, and everything else is PVC pipe or sheets and a few bolts & googly eyes. Hand painted.

SWIPE! <— STILL ALIVE! My Pip-Boy 2000 Mk VI (as was foretold). This is easily the most complicated prop I’ve ever built, and my first time soldering as an adult. I love it, and I’m proud af, though I do have some regrets and it is far from perfect.
All structure is EVA foam built around a baby formula can. Other materials include printed screens/dials, googly eyes, small screws, a chunk of window screen, LEDs, and telephone cable.

For anyone wondering where the hell my Pip-Boy 2000 mk VI went: I had a mishap when I plastidipped it that has made it a much slower project, and sucks a bushel of asses. From what I’ve been reading it was too hot when I sprayed (I live in Las Vegas; this is my life), so the plastidip was partially drying in the air before it hit the pip-boy, which left a shitty fuzzy surface on pretty much the whole thing. Unlike primer, plastidip doesn’t like to be sanded, and try as I might I can’t peel this shit off. So basically I’m engaged in a laborious uphill battle with smoothing this thing out which so far is even more frustrating than sanding 3D prints. I’m pretty fuckin’ bummed honestly, and it has taken quite a bit of effort to not throw this thing in the garbage bin.
.
tl;dr: big set back. I’m working on it.

Once #TacotheRobot was done learning “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” he apparently decided to gear up for PvP in Fallout 76 with new shotgun and minigun arms, and a gas mask.

SWIPE! <— Pip-Boy 2000 mk VI progress! Been a busy work week, and I craft slow af to begin with, but progress is being made. The only foamsmithing left to do now is the holotape deck (which I previously believed was a keyboard). Stay tuned!

#MyBodyIsReady for Fallout: 76.
There is a lot of word from typically reliable sources about it being online, and I have a LOT of reservations about that (I hate multiplayer), but there’s too much room for story here being just 25 years after the bombs drop. AND THAT PIP-BOY, HNNGGGGGG.
So let me be clear: while I have my hopes in check, and I have strong reservations, I will absolutely be giving it a chance before I jump on some hate train and shit-talk it. So, if that’s all you intend to do, do it elsewhere.
