Many of you have seen the altar I made for my Kryptonian wedding last year complete with fortress console pillars that light up:

Well several months ago I decided to build the Master Control Pillar. I needed a place to display all my Superman crystals and what better way to display them than in a reproduction of the console itself:

I designed it after the Donner film version and the Hot Toys console base. The film version, the clear cylinder goes all the way to the floor but I wanted to mix it up a bit with the hexagonal pillar. It also makes it look more interesting. My daugher, Dara (now almost 11 and 5'1") models to show scale:

Here's a breakdown of the pieces:

In pictures, the light is very intense and looks even better in person:

This took alot of planning with the control area. It's not random. It's actually very planned out using shapes taken from the actual set pices prop. Alot of cutting, sanding, shaping...yikes, was I nuts to build this or what?:

And finally the crystals made by the master Hydin:

Well my wife and I made a decision today. We're keeping the light up pillars but we're breaking down and getting rid of the wedding platform and steps. We really don't have the room for them.

Dude!!!!!! that is realy something else. It took me ages to build my one, all the sanding and shaping and pollishing. You must have driven yourself half mad with that master console!!! Worth the effort though, fantastic work!!!
