The Lassetter

Postby namebrand » Sun Jun 07, 2009 10:49 pm

No one has brought this up yet?

I am curious if anyone is in the process of building one? I've had my flashlight and ray gun grips for a few years now but haven't gotten around to getting started. I was partly waiting for the Blu-Ray release, but Badger's photos will help a lot more though (feel free to post larger versions if you like Badger ;)).

Yeah I know, Stirling grip was just there for a quick example.

I got the parts but haven't done anything to them yet.
Recently bought a couple of buttons for the screen though.

Might I ask where you bought your buttons? I could use some for mine as well.

Rylo at the RPF was talking about machining the other add-on parts.

I was waiting for someone to start up on this baby.

What a prop this is.

You can tell almost everything you need to know from the pictures on my site.

I chased this prop since the show was cancelled. It's taken literally years to bring it home.

I'll be watching the progress with interest.

GAH! My folks used to have this flashlight - I wonder if it's in a box somewhere?

Badger, do you know anything about the weathering they did to it for the show? Yours is nice and clean but in the show it looks much dirtier.

Also, does it appear to have more found parts or are most of the greeblies custom looking?

Apart from the buttons, everything is custom machined, even the side panels and the thingy on top.

The weathering was the Mudders mud make up from Jaynestown. They wanted to dirty it down but be able to clean it up easily, because it was a rental.

A light brown artists acrylic paint should do it.

I got the buttons from a German online electronics store.

Search for UNIMEC and you'll find them.
