Ha ha, Dennis, nope. At risk of having the "obsession" label applied again, I'm thinking of building one of those annoying "Roger Roger" droids to hold a camera for taking pics of the kids at the blast doors set.

Speaking of the blast doors, I am feeling pretty good about the build now. I have two people coming by tomorrow to help with the final assembly, then I need to complete the light-up part, then she's done. I expect there will be some serious pics coming out in the next couple days. The first trooping event is slated for this Saturday. Gonna be close!

Thanks to J Stultz of Blue Ridge Base and Scott Wilmoth of the 501st for coming out today. Scott has been by three times now and has helped immeasurably, which goes to show that Imperials aren't all bad. J, Scott, and I assembled the main structure and then began work on the lighting unit. There's still a ways to go but I believe it will be ready soon. No pics, sorry.... my camera battery died.

The spray foam expanded to 18 times it's size and gave me JUMBO molten metal unit! I am not particularly pleased about that. It diffuses the light too much and looks weird. But the museum staff said I was being to hard on myself and it looks good. So that said, may I present the almost completed Blast doors in their inaugural location:





I still need to patch the bottom holes:

And do what with it?

Would your parents let you build something like that?
