    Prometheus RT01/RT01 Transporter wheel cover >> wall art

    Thanks for all the kind comments, they really are amazingly cool bits of kit. Something that appeals to both film fans and also people who may have never seen the film but just appreciate them as a piece of contemporary art.

    Original Prometheus 'Air Lock' control panel

    Some shots of it being used in the film: David using the panel to close the air lock after rescuing Shaw and Holloway Close-up A bit closer still. Apologies for the rubbish pics, I really ought to get the film on Blu-Ray and photograph it with a decent camera.

    Original Prometheus 'Air Lock' control panel

    Here are some shots of the rear of the panel. The white box on the left is the light box that illuminates the button display panel. The main silver grey part is the LCD screen (10" VGA) Close-up of the light box and buttons. The wiring here is a bit of a mess and some of the wiring has...

    Hi Galilao, Funny you should mention T-shirts....look what I have (apologies about the picture quality, they were taken on my phone just now) - - - Updated - - - The text and logo looks a little distorted but that's probably where I should bother to iron my clothes (shame on me!)

    Prometheus RT01/RT01 Transporter wheel cover >> wall art

    Hi there, I should be able to get my hands on a few behind the scenes photos. The vehicle used was a Tatra 8 wheeler but it had to be stripped back to the bare chassis and the engine relocated along with lots of other major changes. I'll see what info and images I can get next week when I head...

    I'm sure you've all seen the vehicle before, but just to give the wheel covers some context, here are some shots I've pulled off the internet to show them 'in situ'

    Prometheus

    Please feel free to use the designs, that's exactly why I posted them up. I'm just glad if they are of some use to people. I'll be getting access to a pair of the original doors pretty soon so will be able to recreate some more of the designs, as well as an exact copy of the Weyland badging...

    Here are some close-ups of the copper finish on the wheel covers. This not only shows off the hammered finish but also some of the scuffs and battle scars that they wear so well.

    Prometheus RT01/RT01 Transporter wheel cover >> wall art

    Here are the centre caps, bolts and spreader plates for mounting the covers to the vehicle. The centre caps are made from a cast resin then painted copper colour (along with the outer spreader plates) with a recess machined into the back of the cap to allow it to sit over the bolt head. Velcro...

    As a contrast to the one shown above, here is one of the other covers which shows how different they all look from each other.

    Prometheus RT01/RT01 Transporter wheel cover >> wall art

    The covers have a real copper finish on them that was vacuum metalised directly onto the surface after some base colour (copper colour) was applied. In the flesh they really do look like solid hammered copper domes. Here are some shots of just one of the covers to give a clearer idea of how...

    Prometheus RT01/RT01 Transporter wheel cover >> wall art

    I've got in my garage a complete set of wheel covers from the RT01/RT02 Transporters from the movie. These have all been well used and as well as having the usual 'weathering' paint to dull them down, make them look more authentic, they also have the battle scars from being used on set. Some...

    Prometheus

    I've also done the more commonly seen 'Automatic Door' sticker - this took even more work because the font was not only different from the 'Do not touch' wording from the above sticker, but it was also quite different from the Bitsumishi font which is the closest match I can find. I pretty much...

    Prometheus

    A year on from the last post, I too have been playing with some of the logos from Prometheus. This one was taken from the original sticker attached to the wheel cover on the RT01/RT02 Transporter. The original sticker is covered in 'weathered' paint but is still clear enough to make out the...

    Prometheus Flame Thrower

    I forgot I had this photo of it. I'll be hopefully getting better shots next week along with more details. Sorry I don't have anything more to go on at the moment.
