I've done the unthinkable.

I've created a steel injection mold to produce high quality parts, the same way the original parts were made. These are the control panels that go on the side of the Han in Carbonite block.


New for Fall 2020, injection molded ABS plastic replicas of the Volvo panels used to build side control panels for a Han in Carbonite prop. This listing is for 8 perfect panel reproductions for your build. These are not resin casts from silicone molds, these are the real deal! There's nothing better as these are made the same way the original panels were made; injection molded ABS plastic.

I had an original Volvo 343 dashboard instrumentation panel professionally 3D scanned with a high resolution FARO laser 3d scanning arm. The scan data was used to reverse engineer and create a CAD file.

The CAD file is an exact representation of the original part. I then used this CAD file to machine an insanely expensive steel injection mold.

Plastic is then melted and injected into the mold, the same way the original panels were created., to form a perfect casting every time.

These are in production now, and they'll be shipping late October. This project has been many many months in the making and I'm pleased to finally share the samples with you all, and accept pre-orders.

The first 25 orders are discounted to $189.99, and all subsequent orders will be full price at $249.99

Oh, holy cow! I may never make a HIC but I might just have to sign up for a pre-order just in case since this is so cool!

And nicer, and more accurate.

Because if the overwhelming response I'm going to extend the pre-order pricing for one more week.

this is incredible, even small parts are insanely expensive to tool up.

one of the most impressive things i've ever seen here in all my years.

you always knock it out of the park in terms of quality, bravo (y)

Tonight at midnight the pre-order sale goes away!

It'll go from $189 to $229 then $249 as the normal price once they start shipping.
