Not bad, is this one of those Phil ZPMs? I'd like to see one in person before I buy one, but from the photographs it doesn't look too bad. It may need a bit more clear coloring to give it the yellow/orange look though.

Yea, its one of Phil's, I was on the fence about ordering one, but glad I did, he did a great job! the cast is really good and the paint is great, I thought it would be more orange than yellow, but ti works, maybe clean the lines up alittle, looks good displayed with the collection
Jan 17, 2010, 12:34 AM - Re: My New Stargate Prop: ZPM!!!
Yes, I was just about to ask if this is a ZPM made by that guy that some people here on the RPF bashed a while back.
That's a killer lighting system you've got in there, and I think it's the camera that's making it appear whiter in the photos when lit.
Tell us all about it (you owe me for the pics I posted of my completed Ronon Dex gun ) because I really want a ZPM and if this one is really great quality, I might just have to get in on one of the runs!

Thanks, yea, I dont know much about Phil's history, heard alot of bad things, but he started getting them out to other members so I thought i'd throw in and order one, great price, the cast is very clean, comes in 2 parts, the top and the round botom section, there is a good sized hole in the middle of the piece for lights, I literally took a battery, taped it up, put 2 small LED's and a switch on it and hot glued it to the bottom, took 5 min. it lights up real nice.
I think the only way to hold it together is magnets, ulnless you want to apoxy it together forever, just drilled the holes and put string magnets in and it works great, can pop it apart and install some real lights later. Hope that helps, and thanks for the ronon pics you posted, they made me go and order a kit! lol
I also got a tok'ra comm and gou'ld grenade from him, there excelent, incredible paint jobs on them both, finally starting to get my stargate collection back together
Jan 17, 2010, 12:49 AM - Re: My New Stargate Prop: ZPM!!!
Well then, it looks like I'm going to be contacting him soon- thanks for the pics and help!
And I'm glad to see that you can install lighting without it costing a fortune. I really wanted a lighted ZPM, but didn't want to spend $450 on it =P

Great stuff man! Your SG collection is getting better by the day ..and yes im jealous! Any chance you can post some pics of the comm and grenade you got from him too?
Jan 17, 2010, 10:28 AM - Re: My New Stargate Prop: ZPM!!!
The light really makes the piece. Had you thought about adding a light gel (coloured filter) to give it more of an orangy glow?
Aug 23, 2010, 1:01 PM - Re: My New Stargate Prop: ZPM!!!
Where did you get one?
Is there any chance there're still some around for me to buy?
Or is there a prop maker of some kind who'd make a replica?

I got one of those on Phil's first run from the Scifihero board, it's great and I love it. I purchased one of the Aurora stunners from propworx when they were doing them, paid a fortune for it, and I was pretty disappointed with the way it is. I want to recast it, fix all the stuff I don't like about it, then make some new ones. My wife hates my stunner gun, lol. However, I have gotten 2 Atlantis personal shields, and a ZPM from Phil, it took some time, but WOW, worth the wait. Paint jobs are phenominal. Getting the ZPM halves together was a bit tricky, but I used some extra pegs from the stargate toys transporter rings so my halves stick together, then I added a dab of hot glue, that will let go when I need to change my batteries but provide enough to keep the halves together. I got a LED kit from my job that was a store display lighting kit. several 10mm sticks with 4 LED's on them. Put a broken clothes hanger in, glued them along that, and voila, light. I also got a toy vending machine plastic mini bubble, painted it black, added a red led and glued that under the red dome on the top part, so when my ZPM lights up that shines bright as heck. I found the spray tint Phil used for the zpm and sprayed the leds with it, turning them from white to yellow/orange. Made it look 1000 times better. I'll put some pics up in my picture thingy.

I dont know who is Phil, but are they still available? For how much are they?

Looks great Alan! As a fan of the Ancients (and Stargate), I like how you have it set-up, with the Chevron.
Jun 8, 2011, 12:37 AM - Re: My New Stargate Prop: ZPM!!!
Pls can you someone tell me where I can buy it too?? If someone still selling it. Thx
Jun 8, 2011, 7:38 AM - Re: My New Stargate Prop: ZPM!!!
Tomperys, you aren't looking very hard, it's been mentioned repeatedly. Go to scifihero.net and look for lord_trael on the for sale part of that board. I'm not sure if he is still selling them right at the moment though.
