Thank you Smile Making this is genuinely stressful, I normally get a lot of enjoyment from making these replicas, but it's not the case (no pun intended) with this one. To be fair, compared to other props I've made there isn't much to it, but what there is, is tough to replicate.

Over fifty years later and those cases are still demanding and hazardous to your health!

Looking stunning, though!

Very Happy Yes my friend, I wish in many ways I'd never started it. That said, this morning, after many glasses of wine to calm my nerves, not to mention the 15 antiseptic plasters I ploughed through, it is finally completed.

If you lift the lock and insert the key it actually speaks eight original phrases from the show.



I want to try something very different after this, maybe a bit of sewing, Emmapeelers I think Rolling Eyes

That case is superb, and it speaks! That must be worth the pain it caused.

Thank you Piers. Yes of course, but it will remain my worst hobby experience, quite a nasty project indeed.

Resin? (Or hire a glassblower Very Happy) I spent some time at the Bristol blue glass blowing works and it had always been an ambition of mine to try it but I chickened out. An amazing skill, but not beyond me to learn, maybe one day.. in my dotage.
