    Yes, yet another old V TV show prop. This time, the experimental explosive charge Ham Tyler friend created to blew up the water stealing station. You can see it at the minute 2:27 of this video:

    Well done. I really enjoyed that part of VTFB, especially when Caleb was playing catch with the explosive.

    Bad news, It seems that the Micronta device was lost in transit. :(

    Waiting for Sat, was able to get the vial tube. 16mm x 65mm. The tube have a black cap, and I thought the prop had a white one. Later, revisiting the image I noticed something odd. It seems like a foil of something wrapping the tube top and another white wrapping inside

    What do you see?

    Finally finished the plastic explosive base in two materials. Sio2 Colorplus clay in green and FIMO classic in leaf green. Here you can see how they look:

    Sio2 vs. FIMO:

    I do believe that the leaf green is closer to the one in the show. What do you think?

    Finally finished this prop. And I even had time to create a cool display for it out of a plastic case and two pieces of HIPS.

    I was really cool to do it, but due the name of the post, I am afraid the FBI or some other organization is looking for me. Hey, c'mon, It is just a prop from an old TV show guys. ;) Any feedback or question will be welcmome.
