My latest build project, can you guess?

Recommended Posts

I've been really busy the last six months, but am nearly finished, so I thought I would post some teaser images of my latst build project. It's being made for this years Norwich Lord Mayor's parade and will hopefully be a awesome sight.

Any guesses?

That looks like the door to the blast generator off number 3. And thats obviously a walker top. Is it a float of said Battle outside the shield Generator?

Guessed right.

It's Endor battle, over 3 metre high AT-ST and replica bunker, all designed and built by myself, but with some assistance now, as it's getting quite large to work with!

Perhaps the only one in the UK, I don't know of any others.

I will post more pics as it's done.

Thats excellent Owen - how powerful are the plasma-watt rifles?

This book is guaranteed to NOT change your life…but it does mention a Lotus Esprit...

Hi, Just some pictures from Lord Mayor's parade day last Saturday. Nearly didn't happen as the float truck decided to break down, but it got sorted by having another truck tow the truck and float trailer, so an extra long float!

The weather held off and stayed Sunny, everyone had a brilliant day who attended, but sadly we didn't win any prizes for five month of work. :(

The plan now is to modify it, maybe make the head turn, add the smoke machine and some speeder bikers, maybe make it walk! ;)

Very cool. Is that a Honda petrol powered shield generator in the last pic? Oh, and is that bloke meant to be an Ewok? :huh:

Didn't you know Honda powered the shield generator, the power of dreams, got to have a reliable engine! :evil: It was for the rear facing amp and speakers. Yes he is an Ewok, just missing the head gear. He was very hot by the end, two hours with a rubber mask on! Other than a child, who wouldn't wear a costume like that for so long, he's the shortest guy in the club!

Someone turned up in a full size and functioning Millennium Falcon :)

Speaking of the Falcon. Who in the UK is signed up for this.

 

80+cms, high detail, fully lit, metal framed.  At 900 pounds, far cheaper than the same size master replicas.

 

Might be a while before being released in Oz.

it appears "Hans" had a little bit of "the Force" rub off on him for his dead stick landing at the golf course.

Injured, but survived.
