    azheat01 built one from scratch and has it on display in his theater room along with some Ikea cases filled with action figures, not to mention his other costumes...look for threads started by him, it's been awhile.

    Particle board It has a smooth finish

    And youll need to start with a cast of the face. The rest isnt bad.

    Im going to cast the face and hands from mine fairly soon. But it wont be before holloween.

    I would be interested in that Mike!

    What about the side panels, they are the bit that will be hard to get right IMHO.

    Well, see the side panels on the IC han in carbonite are not the same as the ones in the movies.

    There are two different panels also, (if i remember right) on the IC han.

    Those can be cast also. Best to cast them in brush on resin then foam.

    But they arent very 'clean' very uneaven surface detail. Id have to do a lot of cleaning.

    On the bright side, they screw off I think.

    Making copies of the IC sides, or scratch building your own? Im going to redo my entire HIC with more screen acurate pieces. Id like to see pics of your elec side boxes if they arent just direct casts from the IC han

    I am definitely interested in some side panels. I am going for the movie accurate look as well. If I see what Im looking for I can send payment immediately. I am excited to get started and would like to aquire my materials before I begin. I appreciate any info that can be provided.

    I remember this link was very informative, however the pictures have been removed. What was the reason for removing the photos?
