As mentioned in Nighteyes' thread, I've also started building a studio scale ANH Jedi Training Remote.
This wouldn't have been possible, without Franks awesome tutorial .. Thanks Frank
Frank recommended to make a couple of vac-pulls over the 6" Plastruct hemispheres, to use for all the styrene-details.
Moe helped me with the vac-pulls, since I haven't made my own vac-table yet (will have to make one very soon ) ... Thanks Moe
Here are the pulls
No additional comment for this pic .. I'll leave that to you dirty, geeky minds
Using an Olfa disccutter, I cut out 8 disc on the vac-hemisphere
and then I cut out the the inner diameter, to make the 8 rings that go around
the crome rims
all I have to do know, is to remove the 7mm gap already marked on the rings.
(sorry about the lousy pics... I've been working while sitting in a hotelroom .. so I only had access to a lousy cell-cam)
I plan to cut the remaining styrene detail, prep the kitparts I have in stock, and drill the 8 holes for the rims, plus 1 for mounting, this week ... so expect updates soon
