UPDATES!

Hi Gang,

A little bit of acrylic… a little of MDF… and a whole lot of awesome

Based on both Starkiller’s and Maruska’s 3D model of the center console, Philip got these 3D files converted and CNC ready!  Within 6 hours after the cuts were made, we built a brand NEW center console!  This console will be built, painted and detailed within 30 days for an upcoming show!  We have our work cut out for us!

Lots More to Follow so Stay Tuned!

Moving Forward!

Hi Gang,

Lots of forward movement over the last few weeks!  ENJOY!

Now that most of the pin stripes are in place and the button panels are set I could FINALLY begin putting everything back together to prep for the GMX show and then daunting task of lighting everything!

 

I used a temp back light to help align all the new and recently cut 1″ tiles!  I can really see everything beginning to come together – but wait… it gets better!

Then I moved on to these panels!  WOW… WHAT A DIFFERENCE these little greeblies make!

More greeblies, tiles and button panel puzzle pieces

I was in the grove!

And then finally…

WHEW!!!  Still lot more to come so stay tuned!

New Updates! Its About Time, Right?

Hi Gang,

A flurry of activity… Enjoy!

As most of you know all the darker panels are getting a MASSIVE makeover,  We’ve stripped all the greeblies, pinstripes and glass tiles to receive the new black paint, pin stripes, etc…  After some sanding, filling, sanding, filling, painting, sanding, drilling ALL the holes for the new 1″ blue, white and yellow tiles (which will be backlit) the panels are looking awesome!

Now we can get to the fun part!  This panel, right behind Chewie, has received A LOT of attention.  I’m really happy with how this turned out!

And now the nose panels.  Very simple in it’s design, the pin striping was much easier than the previous ANH version.  BUT… the ESB version had many greeblies attached… so there’s the trade off.  : )

Now we can start to mount all the greeblies.  The two top horizontal panels were identical in ANH.  For ESB, they heavily modified the panel on Han’s side.  It’s loaded with greeblies and very few LEDs (the lighting guys are happy about that)

This weekend consisted of everything from new vertical extension panels, to greeblies, to arcade cabinets to button panels and everything in between!  Enjoy!

It’s been an awesome coupe of weeks and they best part is our sound and lighting crew back and they are really excited to get started.  The next few weeks are going to be fast paced – we hope!  Lots of little surprises coming so STAY TUNED!

UPDATES!

Hi Gang,

Here is another barrage of updates for you to enjoy!

This panel underwent some MAJOR changes for ESB.  I played with different configurations and finally nailed it down!

I then laser the last of the LED housing and a few rocker spacers
