    Can I say it? Wicked awesome!

    Are your control panels cast from an original component or all they all originals? It was a car, boat, or plane dash board wasn't it?

    Sulla,
    The control panels (with the exception of the 4 small chrome parts) are built from scratch. I am not sure of their origins...I don't think anything has ever been confirmed.

    Here is a little video of the WIP lights for the hero control panel.

    Cheers

    Neil... did you lean over your side panels at the 4.5 degrees, or cut them square?

    The sides are angled (except for the base). The camera lens really masks the angles, but you can see them better here before the box was constructed:



    Matt, glad you like it so far
    Vince, actually I have very few props now....I keep selling 'em off and starting again

    So what do you think it would cost to do a run of the angled sides and shipped out? I have never seen anyone offer the MDF frame.

    I'm actually researching this at the moment because I met the guy making the rubber front casts at Fan Days and one is here at my shop. I'm going to make templates for doing the panels using it. With these two parts and the good side pieces, greeblies and stickers being done, I think a lot of people will get a nice carbonite now without all the hassle.

    Your work is really above average to say the least

    The first time I heard of a han in carbonite I thought it was neat but I really was not that impressed with what I saw.

    What I see of what you have hear is very impressive and makes my competitive parts itch.

    I love what you doing and I can't wait to see it finished.

    What can I say....

    Han in Carbonite is my *dream* prop, and you are making it happen... *sigh*

    Well done, I'm very jealous.

    Isn't every college kid's dream to play beer pong over Han Solo's frozen body?

    But seriously, great work. Don't let your momentum die, push through and get that done!

    So when are we going to see the interest list for this thing in the junkyard???

    I would be happy with just a simple shell. It does not have to have working electronics.

    Put me down as interested
