Soda Bottle TOS Tricorder Screen
time to time I find TOS tricorders, either poorly assembled by either
young eager amature fans, or by an adult with poor prop building skills.
Missing or "messed up" on many of these tricorders is the
"view screen". Trying to find this clear plastic part has
been a real challenge, until I noticed how the upper portion of a
2 liter soda pop bottle has a near perfect arch. After trimming a
Coke bottle, I have anough material for 3 or 4 TOS tricorder screens.
a rectangle out. make sure its 1/2" larger on all sides than
the actual screen. The red rectangle shows the approximate size and
position. Be sure to clean the bottle out, and use a sharp knife.
Be careful. Also, inspect the bottle for scratches or other imperfections.
Paint the "inside" with a primer gray, or Krylon Smoke Gray.
Glue, and your done.

here for Phil
G.'s aka Blaxmyth's [RPF screen name] photo gallery
of cool vac-u-form molds. Phil has a great technique for making
vac molds from MDF, and a grinder. I even heard that he can make
it from particle board! His craftsmanship is a real treat to view.
Take a look at his frames! looks like cabinet work to me. He has
been known to use coal fired oven to heat his plastic!
Phil has helped
me get started in vac-u-form molding. His motivational words got
me off my duff, and into the workshop. He is a really good guy to
ask for help regarding his vac-u-form project.
