John Carpenter's " The Thing" Outpost Sign

I have been working to get a semi screen accurate version of the National Science Institute Station sign from John Carpenter's "The Thing". I was not happy with any of the production signs since they only produce the upper portion of the sign. I had never noticed the Smokey the Bear saying on the lower section of the sign before but the 4K version of the movie helped me out. Made out of hobby bass wood, stenciled, then hand painted Smokey and his saying. Finished up by weathering the wood. A lot of work but I think I captured the likeness of the sign for the most part.
