    Pretty simple project, and if it were from any other movie, a boring prop. But it has its charm!

    I'll add the deep end and shallow end of the pool tomorrow. I have a sheet of clear lexan to go over the top, plus some clear blue "water" style Plastruct sheet.

    Will probably use coat hanger wire for the diving board and ladder.

    Not sure my geometry is dead on, but who cares...

    I think the prop may have been a bit rectangualr.

    Mine's square. And my angles are steeper.

    What are you plans for the water?

    I never noticed it before, but looking at the shots, it appears they have a sloped floor for a shallow and deep end.

    Seeing this also makes me want one, haha.

    Thanks!

    Let me know when you begin, and I'll share my dimensions, and my suggestions on making the geometry more accurate.

    That is awesome. Now, just need the advent calendar that they use for all the cut screens.
