Just finished making my Boomstick! It is a double barrel shot gun that I have restored. Took it all apart and sanded it down, cut the barrel and re blued all the metal parts. Wood stock was sanded down to raw wood then distressed and re stained to give it and aged look. I get to meet Bruce Campbell on Aug 13 and plan on having him sign the stock. Can't wait to meet him and see his reaction. :)

Just finished up making the Gotham Public Works topper and wall art. They are all airbrushed and almost 9in wide and made from solid resin plastic. Toppers come with a "L" bracket for mounting on top of your game. The wall arts have a hanging bracket attached to the back of them. Head over to the site and check them out.

A while ago I had started playing with a nuclear green powder coat and a glow additive. I was able to make it glow but when the game is on you do not see it glowing. The lights from the backglass and playfield are to bright. The only time you would see it glow was when all lights and games where off.
With that in mind and the legs not always getting enough light to glow bright enough we have decided to offer it in the Nuclear Green but without the glow. If however you would still like to glow in it we can do that for an upgrade charge.
Hope everyone likes the new Simpsons Nuclear Green Hardware!!! You can find out more info on it by visiting our website.
Check out the video of the powder coat in the paint booth to see the most accurate color of the green. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y779RJM3Atw&feature=youtu.be

So I did a quick (very quick) photoshop job of what colors and designs I want to do on this game. Now again I must stress that the photoshop pics was done very fast. Just references for me to see what colors to do where and what to powder coat what. Still need to come up with an idea for the backglass. The playfield is going to be all redone and the aliens added to it. I am going to make the letters into space rocks with the letters on the rocks and the aliens around them. More updates to follow but just wanted to show really quick what I am planing on doing.

I have been kicking around a few ideas to make a new design for my buddies company. He and his wife own "The Deadite Empire", Florida's premiere zombie social club. If you live in Florida and don't know who they are, what's wrong with you!?! Even the dead know about them. ;) They run Zombie events all year round in and are the main headliners for The Spooky Empire Expo. So if your in Florida and want to have a kick ass spooky time, look them up!

Came up with a possible new topper for Family Guy. Thinking of making it about 8in tall. It will be laser out or two layer acrylic and then I will make a metal bracket for it to attach to the top of the game.
I was also thinking of making these signs life size, meaning the same size as the ones on the street. I was thinking about making them out of metal, powder coat them safety yellow and the paint in the images and clear over it all.
Most of this will depend on what everyone thinks of it. So let me know :)

Michigan Pinball Expo Trophy's are all done! Hope everyone likes them. This year they were made from a resin rather then the plaster that we had made them from last year. Also John had decided on a silver wash paint job for them this year. Last year we had painted them a graphite gray.
Good luck to everyone who is competing and hope it is a great show.
While there be sure to check out "Jersey Jack", who will be a guest speaker and talking about The Wizard of Oz Pinball at the expo!!!!

Just bought a Hyperball machine to re theme. I plan on making it Buzz Lightyear vs Zurg. Cabinet will be repainted, new custom backglass, remade playfield, LED lights and Custom made figures. I plan on having it done in time for the 2011 Pinball Expo in Chicago. Should be done sooner but I will have it at the Expo none the less. Lots of work ahead on it. Check here and my Facebook for updates on the project.
