Default My Orac

Since we have a B7 section, I thought I'd post some pictures of my replica Orac. It is full size and does the lights and sound and is operated from the key.

It took a lot of trawling through ebay for the parts and even then some are not available, so I went for 'close enough'. The perspex parts are all still available but it is a struggle to get all the electronics to match.

Ah, Trooper ORAC!!!!

Fantastic Kev, how many have we done of him now, three?

I would love to have a go one day but I can't see it happening, looks like a big project to tackle.

I still remember the one you did and got Peter Tuddenham to record some dialogue for, great stuff.

Cheers,

Andy

I can only imagine the time and effort that went into that ORAC, Kevin. The completed item is stunning.

Thanks chaps . I'm pleased with it.

Andy, yep that's three now and that has to be enough!

Dreamdoctor, yes, it does make the sound, there is a sound chip in it with a recording taken from the BBC's Sci-Fi Sound Effects album.
