    Does anyone know of any paper models of the movie props, such as either the TMP or STII, or STIII-IV tricorders, phasers, or communicators?

    I found an old Obi-wan site but found them a bit hard to sooth out.


    Are there any out there that I have missed?

    There seems to be a sh*tload. I know I've seen many, I just never collected them as they do not interest me. But you have you answer above!! ;)

    ah, @zathros, don't you know that for every trekkie there are at least 4 different props? :)

    I agree with you though, I always thought props (unless the real thing...) are going to attact comments... That said, I could make a workable Ghostbusters Proton Pack... (just be a bl**dy big tazer, but would still be cool ;))

    Thanks D-Whale and Spaceagent-9. There are a few I hadn't seen.

    Obiwans are good starts but they don't make smooth final products. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining, as he can design better than I could, but I have tried his TMP tricorder and phaser and found assembly a bit awkward. Maybe I am missing something about finishing techniques?

    I do have something to work on for my birthday; thanks guys!

    I have not seen any STII phaser or tricorder [though Obiwan does have the communicator], nor any of the awesome designs of the phaser, communicator, or tricorder for STIII, let alone the Klingon equivalents from that movie. That seemed to be the film of props and ships but are there any props designs made for paper that I missed?

    I'll try the Obiwan communicator from STII that space agent-9 led but surely someone has done the props from STII-VI?
