One thought on “Late Weekend Links”

  1. Nice write up on NewRuleFX. (Interesting that it came from the BBC).
    I’ve purchased a couple of their foam weapon props. Well done- no mold bubbles or other problems. Both the pistol and shotgun prop are very soft. I’ve already used the pistol on a high-profile project for a stunt hit.
    I can recommend them without hesitation.
