Headpiec, Copperbones Key..and Goonies Map Finished
Thursday, August 03, 2006
I have a few props for Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park, and the Goonies (and am expecting a few more when they are complete that I ordered) so I thought I'd make a few paper props to accompany them.
The Indiana Jones stuff might be too much..but we'll see. I have a Golden Idol and Base on order for it (you can see the map that lead him to it). The map I just printed out, burnt the edges and dabbed with a tea bag. I am very happy with the results. I got the Staff of Ra Headpiece from a buddy..just gotta clean it up and paint it.
For Jurassic Park stuff I'm gonna modify the barbasol can to reveal the dino embryos hidden inside. For now it's just a can. I also have a chunk of amber with a "fossilized" mosquito on order. I've seen a buddy's..they look GREAT!
Lastly my Goonies collection. Copperbone Key (needs paint), and a dubloon (needs paint), Chester Copperpot's wallet, and a Map. The map needs to be traced by hand and weathered. Should look cool when done!

OK minor Update
Just thought I'd post a few pics of my minor updates.
Here is the last bit of drywall I just got finished hanging. I had to frame a wall under the starirs (around the Defender Arcade). I will be putting is a drop ceiling at the point where the drywall stops. It just seemed far too difficult to frame around the ducting and wires and pipes in that area.
Here is my Boba Fett. I have made a couple hands from coathangers (will fill out with foam when I get gloves). Also his cod (groin armor) is done, and the Rangefinder is on the top of the arm on his head.
Here is the Rangefinder in the 'down' position.
Here is his back armor. I made it from thin aluminum.
Last but not least here is my Darth Vader with his newly signed shoulder armor signed by David Prowse!!!
