Any new progress on this project?
could have sworn back in the early pages of this thread when they were attempting to find the source of the ball, someone contacted the guy that built the prop, or at least his estate. IIRC, it was a custom made plasma sphere closer to 10 or 11 inches in diameter. I remember someone saying that currently available plasma balls you could get at Spencer's, Target, et al, were too small to be accurate.
The Prop will live again ( functioning Timewarp maybe not )
I was going through the original blueprints this morning so I thought I would put up some pics, It looks like the scale of the drawings are 1.1 full size ( big drawings) and as I mentioned before the detailing of the gold etching and patterns on it are amazing . ( details don't come up very well in pics )
They list out
- gold etch areas
- fibre optic lights
- the pull out arm mechs
- rotating top panel
- the tesla light/plasma globe
We will list up some build pics/progress as we go. View attachment 625957 View attachment 625958 View attachment 625959
Was the Tesla Light/Plasma Globe Custom-made?
Other than that Movie I've Never seen one that operated like the Film Prop!
