Trek The Original Series
Scratch built communicator made of wood and other materials.
Here is one
communicator replica that is made of wood. The comm is made literally
of a scrap piece of pine found in the basement when the builder,
Will, was 16 (that would be 1980) Will and his brother have been
cranking those wood props out ever since.This comm went through
about 4 generations of re-builds simply to update it as they gained
knowledge of what the real ones looked like, but as shown it remains
untouched since about 1992 - long before the internet or the RPF
or ASAP boards and all its great reference pics.
According to Will:
- all are made
from various pine and soft woods.
- The comm
grill is actually hand punched and drilled (about 200 holes) and
set on a coat hanger frame.
- The paint
on the comm is Krylon semi flat black-about 3 coats and thats
it.The krylons seem to be very durable like an auto paint.
- Some parts
are from model kits but most are literally found around the
house and from countless walks down hardware shelves
Will put these together simply because he loved the design
of ST TOS props since he was a kid.
is not one of my props, but I have been approached to host these
images along with some information regarding its construction. Click

here is how this same prop looked back in 1980, before its rebuild.
