All posts for the month December, 2014


Well, been a while for an update, so here we go.

The Thomas helmet, was not 100% completed for Halloween. There was some issues for with the control cable that I had not taken into account. More on that later when I get a chance. Oh, no pictures of the finish paint job, and it was dropped Halloween night and destroyed the paint. Sooo in the spring when it warms up we will revisit and fix the Helmet.

I got couple new pieces for my camera. A Canon Speedlite 430EX II flash and Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM lens. The flash was needed badly as the one on my T3 (1100D) sucks. The new lens I plan on using for parties and landscapes. I still have my Rokinon 14mm for night sky and the like, but its manual focus and friggen heavy.

Also got a new spray gun, an Iwata LPH80. This was a Christmas gift I got to replace the crappy Harbor Freight spray gun I bought for painting the Thomas helmet.

Now, to wait for warm weather…
