A Tale of Two Apollo 13 Hats

Here’s something hyper nerdy: On the left is a replica of the baseball cap worn by the actual Apollo 13 astronauts after recovery (with my name on it). On the right is a replica of the cap worn by Tom Hanks in the movie Apollo 13 made for me 20 years ago by the lady who made them for the film. Both are exact replicas of the real hats.

A Closer Look at my NASA Replicas

Here’s another video from Tested which goes a little more in-depth with my spacesuit replicas.

Custom Raygun for Weta

I made this raygun for a joint Replica Prop Forum and Weta contest several years ago. It was made in the style of the Dr. Grordbort universe and judged by Greg Broadmore. I won first place!

Adam Savage visits 3F Studios!

We were very humbled to get a visit from Adam Savage and the Tested crew. More videos to come!

Apollo A7L-B Space Suit Replica

I just finished this highly accurate replica of the Apollo A7L-B space suit. This suit was worn by astronauts on the later moon missions (Apollo 15-17). I also made the EVA gloves and a replica of the Hasselblad camera used on the moon.
