I’ve been scratch building some Hoth Binoculars. I’ve found lots of reference pictures but I’ve not been able to find any accurate measurements. So the 3 I’ve made are all slightly different. Just trying to get a little closer to the film version. Any info would be very much appreciated. Cheers.
Here’s the latest build. Too small I fear

I'm pretty sure there's a model on Thingiverse, I'm not positive that whomever modeled them had a Simrad rangefinder to pull measurements from, but they look pretty accurate to me.

Even if you don't have a printer, you could get some basic dimensions from the STL files.

Cheers Dan. I had given this idea some thought. I’ve looked at a few and there are differences. So it’s not difinitive

Lovely work - really impressive!

I am scratch building a pair right now from compressed foam:


Scale is always the problem isn’t it?

it is really fun to see your build and make similar connections to mine.
