    What seems to be the agreed shape of the HIC box, Are the long sides 90 deg's to the top or do they have a slight angle? Ive seen photos of the prop that could go both ways as well as fan made plans that show both ways. Which version was screen used in Episode V. Gotta get my self in gear and get started on this

    In Empire they used the version with the parallel sides, while in Jedi they used a new version with a slight angle of the sides.

    Thanks for the reply, So obviously two different HIC's were made. Any other differences between the two other that the slight angle?

    I personally think the angled sides were created to allow it to be taken out of a hard fiberglass mold easier.

    I am also not sure there were two different HICS made, I think the sculpts are the same for both movies. Possibly just cut up and a new box made, or cast.

    I just measured my rubber HIC from the point that it hits the top frame, in other words side to side and top to bottom of the carbonite part and here are my measurements.
    top 577mm, bottom 624mm, and top to bottom 1775mm. set against the angled box design plans I have its a bit short. The plans have these dimensions top 597mm, bottom 644mm, and top to bottom 1875mm. So my HIC is 20mm width to short and 100mm length to short. What dimensions do you guys have? My plan is either to short or the HIC is.

    The triangle on the right has the conventional notation of small letters for the lengths . I would like to be able to set the angle of the text for when I am not using scramble . There is a rule connecting the side lengths of right-angled triangles .

The plans have these dimensions top 23.5039", bottom 25.3543", and top to bottom 73.8189". So my HIC is .787402" width to short and 3.93701" length to short. What dimensions do you guys have?

    ...yes I realize that's not the post you were talking about, but I'm bored.

    Awesome...huge thanks.....seems short compared to the illusive concept measurements for shipping. I wonder if they used this blueprint for the angle.....or just went with it , like so many set designers did back in the day.
