EDIT:
A template is available. if you want it, just drop me an email!
Many thx to starbuc for the help!

I started working on it yesterday. IT's going to be a "working" version. Does anyone know if there's a sound chip with the "chrip" available?

WOW, thank you! This helps a lot!
Could you give us some dimensions?
Are the edges beveled?

Thx a bunch,
Isaac

BTW: What does "working" mean in this case?

Isaac,
Yeah, like Sidewinder said, just push the lower right button, and the red led lights up. I tried to contact C-N-C with it, but unfortunately, no voice transmission capabilities.

Maybe Ivanova was out exercising the open airlock policy?

LOL!

Don't you know you can't reach them when they're in hyperspace?

Aynway, I did some scaling on the pic to make templates.
I found the size to be 1.5x1.5. Does this seem correct?

i have two differnt types in resin.
one like you showed and a more square narrow one.
were both used and is the back on the one above flat or curved to fit the back of your hand better.

Here are some measurments on the hero link. The bottom measurement is 1 1/4 inches, the picture is a bit dark at the bottom so you may not be able to see it. The small triangles are 5/16" along the top and by 4/16" along the side and the buttons on the bottom of the link are 5/16" along the top by 4/16" along the bottom by 3/16" along the side. The edges of the like are beveled.
Hope this helps. Make sure you guys making one show them off when you get them done.

Terry, thank you so much!

'course, there will be a show off...

One question: Do you think it is unintentional that the triangluar buttons are assymmetrical?

Isaac,
Not sure about the triangles. I can check with the guy who made them and see what he says.

Guys,
I drew a template from the pics and measurements kindly provided by starbuc. If you want it, shoot me an email!

Cruiser, why does yours look different?

I have no idea why it is weird. I bought it some years ago, when I thought that it looked really cool, but now I've seen starbuc's, it seems a little 'bad.'

Please help me identify it.

PS: Could you email me those templates? You know my address...

Those are great templates Issac.

I look forward to getting started on this. I'm going to use styrene, because it is readily available to me, but if someone makes an aluminium one, please lemme know.
