      Ongoing DDoS Attack causing Forum Slowness   26/04/17

      In case you have missed the announcement, the reason that the forum has been slow at times since the minor version update the other day is due to a Denial of Service attack, brute force attack on our email, and judging by the lag with our FTP response, that too.  If you're feeling like you're experiencing a glitch in the Matrix, you're not wrong.  This is the same MO as the attack in September 2016 that occurred when we transitioned to the new version 4 of the software.  We're currently working with US and UK cyber-crime departments, who specialise in this sort of thing, and we're hopeful that we'll be able to track them down this time by using the accumulated evidence already held.    We are pretty certain that it's a continuation of the same attack last year, only at a reduced intensity to deter people from using the site "because it's terribly slow", rather than taking it down completely, and we're also sure of the motivations of those responsible.  Spite.   Please bear with us in the interim, and wish us luck in dealing with these.... "people".

1/1 Star Trek: TWOK, Ceti eel sample box.

14 posts in this topic

I have been working on this for the past few weeks.

I wanted a 1/1 prop to house a Ceti-eel from the Star Trek movie The Wrath Of Khan, it will also go with my TWOK costume.

It started out as a make up box, the guts stripped out of it and re lined.

I scratch made parts, bought parts and raided the parts bin for anything that would work and look right.

It has working LEDs/switches, sample tubes with samples made from Tamiya clear and two part epoxy, the Ceti-eel is 1/1 and came from America, all primed and weathered.

It is 90% finished with just a couple of small bits to do but they are just a small probe thing, but the box is finished.

Many thanks, glad you like it. Like I said a couple of small pieces to make and add but nothing major.

 

Here is the costume, I have made it my own with patches and ID arm band, the phaser was a original movie one, stripped down and repainted with a trigger added, more robust. Also made the chest box, buckles and added the three ball pocket fasteners-these are on the original.

I am trying to figure out how to get some sound effects going in the thing, using a small MP3 player USB and a pillow speaker...we shall see if it works.

Finally finished the probe/scanner, this has a 'sniffer' for soil, gas and water samples and can be attached to the sample box to take reading, it then attaches to the data pad for upload of data :D

Ta mate. Was a good project to work on, hopefully I have captured the Star Trek feel with the equipment.

 

Glad you like it.
