    I can't wait to build one of these puppies. It's looking really frakking good!

    I just came across a site that has some great pics of one of the original props. And you can see how pretty it isn't. (I'd still take it, though!) And even though this isn't a hero model, the hero models didn't look as... heroic as you'd think. http://www.modelermagic.com/?p=40401 Good reference, though. Good reference on how not to build, mold and cast a prop....:twisted:

    On a different topic, there are also some great shots of a Centurion helmet: http://www.modelermagic.com/?p=39886 I notice that it doesn't have the holes drilled in the forehead for the actor/stuntman to see through. Wonder if they just stuck this on the head of some poor sap and told him not to move.

    What the heck was wrong with me when I made the first post to this thread??? I didn't mean "recreation", I meant "replica"! And now it's too late for me to edit the post, and the wrong word stays on the front page! wall1
    Could anybody (ekuth, Zathros?) fix that, please???

    I know this site. It is the best ref site since starshipbuilder.com has vanished. I have found tons of interesting material there, e. g. a faithful and fully rigged replica of a Taun Taun stop motion puppet and several absolutely stunning Galactica Lego builds (you have to see them!).

    I'd take the V blaster! I made one as a kid out of plywood.
