Volpin Props Guide to Building

I have been following Volpin Props for a while now on Facebook and on Flickr, enjoying seeing what he is doing in his prop shop, but also learning new tips on what to do and pitfalls he has come across whilst building. Today I came across his Tested articles and thought I would share the links here.
The Volpin Project, Part 2: References and Blueprinting
The Volpin Project, Part 3: Selecting Materials
The Volpin Project, Part 5: Bondo Strikes Back
The Volpin Project, Part 6: Details, Accents, Refinements, and Mockups
The Volpin Project, Part 7: Introduction to Moldmaking
The Volpin Project, Part 8: More Complex Moldmaking
The Volpin Project, Part 9: The Casting Process
The Volpin Project, Part 10: Illumination and Audio
The Volpin Project, Part 11: Prepping for Paint
The Volpin Project, Part 12: Finally Time to Paint
The Volpin Project, Part 13: Weathering The Needler
The Volpin Project, Part 14: Putting It All Together
I also highly recommend Volpin's Painting and Weathering for Props ebook. I have been prop building for several years now, and I learned so much from it. Worth every cent of the small asking price of US$8!
