Hi All! First, my APOLOGIES!! I've been so busy with the Tricorder over the last couple of weeks tweaking and getting ready for molding. I was hoping to have it molded already by now however my friend Steve and my schedules haven't been able to mesh yet! He's up in Ventura (a 2 hour drive for me) and he's busy filming a Pilot for a tv series at the moment. I my self have several medical appointments going on at the moment. The GOOD news is that next week Wednesday Thursday Friday seem to be the best for both of us! So please keep your fingers crossed!!
Other great news is that the opening mechanism is damn near PERFECTION!! What I mean by that is that even the "tone" of the open and close is IDENTICAL to that of the original prop! It's hard to explain in words so what I would like you all to do is to go back and view the 1st season episodes "Angel One" and "Skin of Evil". These episodes have great shots of the tricorder opening and closing with the sound. Listen to it CLOSELY and you will hear this tone I'm referring to!!
I have also matched up the "Dove Grey" and have it in spray can form now!! THANKS SHERWIN WILLIAMS!!! There is a large store in Anaheim that makes the spray cans!! Yay! Those guys are FANTASTIC!! George spent 2HOURS matching the paint PERFECTLY!!!! The other amazing part is that this paint LITERALLY dries in 5 Minutes!!! I'm NOT kidding!!!! So for those of you with access to a Sherwin Williams outlet that can do spray cans, PM me and I'll send you the formula for the color. It has to be LAQUER(sp) PAINT!!
