Painted the rest of the panels:

Bought a 200cm long 2cm diameter PVC pipe for $4 and cut 30 0,5cm thick rings:

Image

Had several sets of decals printed (I only needed one set but thought I might as well fill out the sheet with several to give to others who might need them).

The decal with the black dot pattern goes over the window that covers the yellow LEDs on panel #2 (the one that is going to sit below the main "hero" panel with lots of blinking lights.

Image

Added the decals on the panels, and I also got help from my girlfriend to make the small circular stickers that go on most of the panels, and lastly glued on the rings:

Image

Note the right side panels from top to bottom are on the left and vice versa:

Image

With natural light:

Image

Now I'm waiting for the yellow LEDs that go in panel #2 and the rest of the greeblies (there are well over 100 bits and pieces to glue on in total) to make it look "screen accurate".

This might be a good time to share pictures of the original panels (something that might be nice for those uninitiated or unfamiliar with the Han In Carbonite prop). These pictures are humbly borrowed from Philip Wise of rebelscum.com, a legend in the HIC building community, who was central in discovering that the original sidepanels came from the instrumentpanel of an old Volvo 343.

Fantastic work!
Got my own original Volvo panel recently. So looking forward to start playing with silicone. Working on a few other smaller molds first to get the hang of it.

Your work is an inspiration!

Thank you Søren and Maxim, I really Appreciate it!

I took a few snapshots of the HIC hanging at my workplace, having mounted a small spotlight I think it looks really presentable:

And here you can see the subtle yellow/orange hue emanating from behind the HIC:

I have a deadline of getting the sidepanels finished (only greeblies left really) by may 16., as I'm going to take the HIC out for a stroll on the parade at may 17. Norways national day and I want him to look his best.
