    I've been asked to make some props for an upcoming independent film. "hint, hint"
    This is the first up to bat. I was told to make it reminicent of the Baker/McGanns screwdriver, but not a copy. I was pretty much given liberty aside from that. What do you guys think?

    Thanks. Yes, It's copper fittings all cut and super glued. Took about 45 minutes to make. Maybe I'll do another and make a tutorial.

    Nice.

    I've been thinking about doing one similar to this in polished EMT conduit to get the classic silver look, but the copper is pretty cool.

    What did you use for the head?

    What did you use for the head?

    A coupling cut to the right size with my dremel. The "bullet" was the end of a riser? that was cut off at length. A hole drilled into it with a 1/8th inch rod through it and the head ring. The 'bullet' was a bit bigger than I wanted it to be, but when you're scratchbuilding on a budget....

    Nice. Are those actual bullets that you're using for the "bullet" in the head?

    Nice stuff guys. I personally think that a timelord's SS should be like a Jedi's saber, unique to him alone. Keep up the great work.

    Great. Just great. Thanks a lot. Now I want one. ;\ Can't say I've watched (or even liked) Dr. Who for the past two decades, now I've got a yen to build a cool SS.

    Goes to prove, a props origin is less important than it's 'coolness' factor. Heh.

    Wow. Cool work guys. I'd really like to build my own custom SS, and this has really inspired me. Thanks. :D
