Haribon72's -DIY- Rogue One - Death Star Plans

Recommended Posts

I wanted to share my finished DIY project for the Golden Gate Garrison and the 501st Legion. This is my version of Jyn Erso's Death Star plans from the upcoming Rogue One movie. This will be presented on Friday, 12/16/2016 during our movie night event and a special gift to a Make-A-Wish child. I made this from scratch using items from the Dollar Store, things I had around the garage, and basic art foam.

 

Next week, i'll post some step by step photos and how to's.

 

Enjoy!

Very nice work, I was hoping to see a certain scene, a side view but wasn't in the movie ;)

Before the movie, I printed out some screenshots from the trailers and ideas from the Replica Prop Forum.

Please Note:

This was made for a Make-A-Wish foundation to present as a special gift. 

Now, there are no exactly measurements.   I just had fun with it and "guess-ti-mate" the build.

Remember, this is suppose to be fun and exciting.    Don't kill yourself with all the specific details.

 

If you saw the movie already, you already know why the plans don't have specifics and close up shots.

 

 

 

 

Trim and cut the two cutting boards to the desired size using a hacksaw and dremel.

Using a piece of one inch scrap wood as a holder while I glue to down with contact cement.

Here I used hot glue and contact cement to make the sides of the box.

Top circle = Pringles Lid

Top black circle = black metal light fixture holder from the old house with a plain washer on top

 

Bottom circle = This is a "to-go" soup  container from a Chinese restaurant.

Silver metal circle = This was an old motor bearing from an e-waste dishwasher.

Here I used left over white ABS plastics to make the minor details.

When gluing, I used a combination of hot glue and contact cement (for the metal pieces).

Sizing and making various layers.   I used more black foam and white foam to make my layers and top patterns.

The round details came from various e-waste circles I found.   I have no idea where they came from.   Just get creative on what you find.

Allow to dry a day then sand.   After a couple days, test fit the parts before painting the primer and finish colors.

Using an air compressor to blow off any sanding debris before paint.

I also left some markings inside the box to help me put the pieces back into place.

Primer and paint (two days)

Sorry I didn't take many painting shots.    

 

Here I used spray adhesive to stick the foam directly onto the box.  I used contact cement for the metal parts.   And hot glue for the foam parts.

Back of the box.   Sorry for the messy bondo work.   We have a cat and dog and they became curious.    Ugh!!!
