    I'm not sure it has been discussed here, but the "second" lunchbox is a "Zuperzozial" , the one seen at the comic con looks likes the "1400335 Coconut white" but in the movie it seems to be the "1400337 Stone grey". Click image for larger version.

    T partially dismantled one of the Mentor 13x18 plate holders I received so I could document them.
    They are pretty complicated, and have very fine workmanship - they are quite intricately put together. One sign of the care taken in it's assembly is the screws - all the slots on the heads are aligned perfectly. They consist of 4 outer rails made of wood. The upper and lower rails are the same profile, but the two end rails use 2 different profiles (I managed to measure them and I'm drawing up profiles for a later post). There are also a pair of sprung felt light seals behind the RH outer end plate, which stop light getting in once the dark slide has been removed.

    The wooden rails fit together using box joints (the metal plates don't appear to do much in the way of strengthening). A thin channel is routed down the centre of each rail which captures a 0.02in steel plate, which forms the separating wall between the front and back plate holders. The overall outer dimensions (including the retaining lips but excluding the dark slide) are 5.7in x 8.6875in (8 11/16ths). The retaining lips on the top and bottom edges are 0.1in wide, and on the bottom edge it is chamfered away in the centre 1.45in from each side.

    The dark slide is 0.05in thick aluminium with a brushed outer surface and black rear side. It is 4.96in x 8.125in (measured to the edge of the stamped indent of the handle).

    Three sizes of small countersunk brass woodscrews are used in the construction. The largest are used to hold on the outer right-hand aluminium plate. The middle size is used to hold on the corner plates and the smallest are used to hold on the inner glass plate retaining plates. The metal plates are all brushed aluminium of varying thicknesses.

    Sorry about the mixed imperial and metric measurements, but it does seem to be made using both systems of measurement (which is odd, as I wouldn't have figured on Germans using imperial measurements).

    More to come soon....

    not sure which thread to post this. hope its ok here
    But this is one unique custom blaster I found on Yahoo Japan Auctions.
    Appears to be a "Snub" version but I think the its a Super Deformed version from the huge barrel.
    And I think this blaster looks so damn cool

    think the current price is over $700.00
    https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/x529879667

    and was able to save the pictures.

    I'm pretty sure that's a 40mm Airsoft Grenade Launcher.

    There was a thread started about it on Propsummit:

    http://propsummit.com/viewtopic.php?t=5553

    It is indeed an Airsoft gun, produced by Elfin Knights (they're the company who recently did the Blade Runner blaster water pistols)

    I actually have a pair, this is the one in better condition. I can confirm that they are not real ebony, but hardwood with a 'japanned' black laquer finish.

    Here's some of the detail photographs you wanted:
    Attachment 801306Attachment 801307Attachment 801304Attachment 801305


    Here's an extra one showing the 13x18 sheet film holder. This clips into the place where the glass plate would fit - there is a leaf spring on the back of the plate holder to push it forwards and another thinner one in the slot at the end that holds the plate or film holder in place under the 2 rectangular tabs at the other end (there are also 2 tabs that fold out at the other end once it's been clipped in). you push against the spring and lift from the other end to remove the plate or film holder.

    I'll post some more pictures with detailed measurements later.

    No problem, chaps. As promised, here's some drawings of the profiles used in the wooden sides of the frame. First the LH end rail and the top and bottom rails:

    Note that at the RH end of the top and bottom rails a 1i inch wide by 2mm deep section (level with the top of the dark slide slot) is milled off to accommodate the aluminium end plate.

    Nest the RH end rail. This has 2 slots milled into it, into which are placed double-sided leaf springs. Wooden battens are then placed on top of the springs and a strip of felt is glued onto the battens and the adjacent bar of the rail. The felt then forms a hinge, and when the dark slide is removed the springs push the battens up into a cavity milled into the back of the end plate. These form the light seals to stop light from the dark slide slot exposing the plate or film once the slide is removed:

    The two yellow arrows point towards two thin slots cut into the top and bottom rails. The ends of the plate retaining inner aluminium plate fit into these slots (they are level with he top of the wooden bar the plate screws into). I couldn't get an accurate measurement as it's difficult to get a vernier into them, but I estimate they are 0.035in high by 0.034in deep and extend along the rail 0.595in (they are about 0.1in longer than the plate)
    Here's the profile drawing, this time a top and side elevation:

    I think I've pretty much measured and photographed everything (like I said, they are pretty complex little items), but if there's anything I've missed or you need clarifying just ask:

    I got an email from Etsy that my order has been canceled. Appears as if he entered in the wrong number of data cards available, so my order was canceled.

    Bummed out big time! As Nexus7 said, he's starting a new film. I reached out to him and he said he won't be making any more of these cards for the foreseeable future. Damn!

    That's a REAL bummer. Hopefully somebody else will make them. I need some of that really futuristicky looking stuff for my display.

    OK Guys I have been trying to find a decent copy of Pale Fire for ages but they are as rare as hen's teeth over here and good copies go for loads of cash, so using the reference material available I have re-created the cover to fit as a sleeve a currently available version.

    This is the version I have used now from Penguin Books.
    Attachment 786564

    With my sleeve it is turned into this.

    Attachment 786568 Attachment 788657 Attachment 786572 Attachment 786573 Attachment 786574

    I have just folded it as a loose sleeve but it could be stuck on if preferred. The graphic I used is attached below if this might help anyone. I printed it on to A4 photo paper using a size setting of 101%, which seems to work best. Hope it helps you guys.

    I need to review that scene in the movie. Remind me, is the screen-accurate book paperback or hardcover? I thought hardcover because it had the clear dust jacket.

    Thanks! I picked up a hardcopy version for fairly cheap. The screen-accurate, ISDN #9780399504587 books range from $1400 to over $10,000 online!

    More 2019 than 2049, but I just received this sweet ashtray. It's an original Safex circa 1960's. I'm not sure if I'll strip the paint off the back. It's in great condition and I like the history of The Flamingo Hotel.
