    Just found this thread!

    Those red lined "blueprints" are mine. This is a project I've wanted to do forever!

    Awesome to see somebody else interested in tackling it!

    I drew those plans before the "Pallet Photo" was uncovered. I definitely need to revisit the plans and see what new information can be applied to them.

    Here's a quick mockup I made of the weapon layout on the door. The sizing should be fairly accurate.

    Thanks for those. Yeah I believe this can actually be built without too much difficulty..the only hard mart in my opinion is going to find a life size replica of that line launcher.

    In that "Pallet photo" you can see that one of the nuts on the bottom of the door has fallen off and can clearly see that the vault is made (for the most part) of wood. Thought I would use PVC pipe for the round bits and mimic welds with hot glue and some clever paint work.

    Also since it's basically just a box there's got to be a nice simple way to build it so that it can be broken down into it's component four sides, top, bottom and door. Screws and bolts hidden away in some inconspicuos areas would work. I was hoping to do that to my own so that it could be stored or transported if nessesary.

    I am going to make the box and door so that the door can be taken off to move it as there is no way you could move it through a door with the door on, but could without it tilted on its side

    I think making all those layer circles where the door meets the box is the trickiest aspect. It's easy if you don't care about using a LOT of material but I'd like to make it sort of lightweight so that a heavy duty hinge wouldn't be needed.

    I also spent a bunch of time researching how real vault doors work since I too wanted to make that wheel turn and unlock the bars so that it could open.

    Found this nice shot of what's happening underneath the cylinders covering the junction-

    Yeah I thought about making it "work" but the way I am making it, I can make it static, then if I want to make it work I can later. Mainly just want to get a mock up first, then worry about the fine details later. Appreciate all the info. Definitely will help

    I'll be following this, since I am going to be getting a full set of 89 gadgets and would love to build a static display that looks like the inside of the door. I have no idea what to use for the outer "metal" oval parts.

    I am going to steam and soak some wood boards to get it to bend.

    I have other stuff on the table right now so it is going to be a bit before I can start on this.

    I had a client ask for the vault in the bat cave. I decided to go ahead and model it. The model stands 14 inches tall.

    That would be an awesome idea! Put a dome light inside the top to give it the perfect mood lighting.

    That's exactly what I want for my 89 prop display, a scaled down vault with that door.

    If you're doing a run I'm in for one of any size but a larger one for my props would be perfect.
