Very nice ! The gold dome piece on the top should have some serrated markings around it just under the "antennae" like a series of "IIIIIIII". You could maybe draw them on with a fine line marker ? The original piece looks like it's made of brass and is clearly a "found" part.

Found a piece of the correct colour fluorescent tubing



Cutting, grinding and finally polishing that crystal to the right size and shape was one of the most boring jobs I've ever encountered !



The one piece I was dreading making the most is now finished



Finally nearing the end of a long journey

The final leg of this build is the floppy drive spinner. I can't see me being able to locate the actual piece used on the original prop, so its a case of replicating it. How hard can it be ?? I've made everything else from scratch, so armed with my highly detailed design sketch Off I go ...
