IF ANY OF YOU ARE JOINING THIS THREAD FOR THE FIRST TIME:

This was originally a thread seeing who wanted to come over to my place and help build but I'm converting it to a build thread for my HIC. There will still be build days which I'll post in the title but otherwise enjoy the read!




Our friend Skyler101 is visiting from the Wonderful land of OZ!

http://www.therpf.com/f12/anyone-here-toronto-canada-140304/

So on Sunday, March 18th 2012 I'm inviting anyone who would like to join us to come over and work on a Han in Carbonite display with us!

I currently have the Stormrider Han pieces like this set:

http://www.therpf.com/f13/han-carbonite-rubber-casting-138685/

As well as 8 resin castings of the Volvo panels.

The goal of the day is to see how far we can get building the box and perhaps working on the panels! If we can get far enough I might even be able to bring a FINISHED HIC to the Toronto Prop Party! :D

I figure a 9am start (although feel free to drop by whenever you can) and I'll be providing the supplies as well as pizza & beer.

So, who's up for some prop building? PM me for my address.

Well boo to you then! :lol

That's alright, starting to look like two guys in a garage building a HIC. I'm cool with that.

Sounds like a good time though, have fun!

Anyone in the area have a good flush trimming bit for a router?

I'd bring my router, but its in Oz, and runs at 220...

But I am definitely looking forward to it! :) Hell yeah! :)

:lol

I've got a router, but the only bits I have are the dirt cheap Canadian Tire ones that don't cut well AT ALL.

Time to buy a nice flush trimming bit I guess! There's the potential of one other person joining us, I've got to get some plans together now! I've had the online plans on my PC for a while, gotta dissect them.

Allright!

Big shout out to Orange Blend, who was kind enough to let me play in his backyard, and help with the construction of his HIC!

I had a blast, and those who missed out, missed out BIG TIME!

We got the HIC box 3/4 done, and it should be done with another afternoons work! I want my own, but I don't think I will be able to take it aboard a plane back to Oz as HAND LUGGAGE! :) :)

THanks OB.. Looking forward to doing it again soon!

Kinda what it's all about right here ;)



Thanks for helping me out! It was nice to meet both you and your friend Dave. Always neat to meet other folks on this forum, especially when they help you build props!

Looking forward to building more stuff with you in the future and bringing this bad boy to the Toronto prop party in June!

That's the clean 1/4 of the garage and trust me, it took a day and a half of cleaning to get it that way!

Look forward to seeing them! Tell Dave it's safe to post his here as well. I'm sure his wife doesn't check the RPF. :lol

Looking good OB!

Did you get the right height? (we were talking about that at the XMas party)

And as an aside, did you know Harrison Ford is 4ft tall?

In Raiders, when Indy goes to the old man to read the inscriptions, he says 6 kadams (Sulla said that is 72"), and take away one kadam, so that makes it 60" or 5ft.



And there it is taller than Indy, so there you go. Harrison Ford is 4ft tall.:lol:lol

Midget in Carbonite! :lol

Nope, I'm going based on Han Solo's height. Not Indy's. ;)

Yeah, I gotta come out to the next one.

Think you'll have another one before the prop party?
