Star Trek TOS scratch build Tricorder


Well-Known Member
I recently built up a functioning hero tricorder using shells made by a friend on another forum. All the metal work is mine from scratch. Features include a motorized spinning jewelarama, removable data disc and a scanner wireless processor unit in the bottom compartment.<br /><br />
