Blakes 7 Mini Orac

Just finished a scratchbuild of the Orac prop from the Blake's 7 episode 'Gambit'. The super computer shrinks itself so that Avon and Vila can smuggle it into a casino!

The model is made from 6mm perspex (an offcut from my full size Orac). The carry case is made from plywood clad in plasticard and contains a circuit board to reproduce Orac's background sound and power his lights.

Thanks. Cutting the perspex was the hardest part of making this. It is the 6mm stuff, as is the big Orac. Same is true of the original mini Orac prop, quite what that says about his shrinking process, I don't know!
