Some Years ago in a galaxy far far away....

A good friend and me used the chance to visit the Star Wars Expo in Paris.
Because I´m not a friend of the new Prequels I was more interested
in the good old stuff.

We had booked 3 days for the Expo and we had a lot of camera and light equipment with us.
It was an unbelivable opportunity to see all these original costumes and props.
Thanks George L. and his people to make this happen.

We made a lot of photos and also some realy nice videos from the costumes.

Especially from the Han Solo in Carbonite Statue and its panels.
For this statue we had planned 1/2 hour of photoshooting.
But in the end, we used 2 hours for it :D

We made some realy nice and interesting photos from Han and especially from the panels.

Because the pics and videos we made where in so close range and some of them more than close, I was not sure if I can share them with the community.

2 Years ago, I sayd, lets do it.
But before I could start, some members made me so annoyed with their disrespectful manners that I stopped that idea.

Than last year, Philip Wise and some other honored members
brought out light to the mystery of the Panel origin and other
very important details.

That was when I thought about the second time to show you the following pics and now, here we are.

Please enjoy the following pictures.

At the bottom of the first Hero Panel you find the following "object".

That looks like a spring behind the nut.

Is this a found part from the Volvo panels mounting assembly?

Oh great!

This is the story of my life, just when I get my panels finished, after wanting a HIC for years, some new photos come to light. :lol

Hopefully, it's just stuff I can add to mine and not have to re-do them again! :)

But seriously, thanks for sharing! :thumbsup

No, not from the Volvo part. I assumed this was the on/off switch.
Tha spring loaded widget, I believe, locks the panel onto the side of the box.

Since the hero panel switches positions it would make sense that they are removable in some
manner.

Are we gonna see pics or did we get Gino-ed? ;)

There are two screws plus the fabled 'locking mechanisms' holding the panels to the box.

Very cool, I love this prop and love seeing new photo's of it. That's a great shot of a part I had to really guess at when I made my kit. Wont be the last, I'm sure, when we see more of your photo's. Thanks for sharing.:thumbsup
