Just finished this in time for Southern Expo weekend just gone. This is a 1/6th resin kit produced by Steve Howarth, the SFX artist responsible for the full sized unit on the film. The kit comes with static lighting, but I went one further and fitted a microcontroller driven LCD which shows the range of Gerty`s emoticons, some of which are animated. It also controls the brightness of the eye light as well as flickering the striplights during a simulated boot sequence.

The wall section is made from a wooden `gallows` covered in foam core and sheet styrene panels. Power comes from 3 AA batteries which will happily run continuously for several days. Total height is around 16"

Hmmm...embed code doesn`t seem to work for Vimeo.  Seems to work for YouTube so might need to look at the settings.


Looks great!

There is a list of allowed sources for embedding so just a matter of adding Vimeo to that list.

The embed code can then be found under the paper airplane icon on Vimeo. Click the video icon in the reply box and paste the code into the pop up. Bobs your aunty!

Oh boy, that`s a whole different level of sci fi modelling right there.... gotta love the drink spills.  Looks like an actual working unit, I wouldn`t have a clue how to go about this.....incredible.
