Exactly a year ago today I started a project, to build and assemble together the largest collection of good quality replica props from 'The Avengers' as I could possibly manage. So, not a bad haul for the first years work. Roll on 21st March 2018 Wink

Ian

They are all very good, but the Cybernaut and the laser gun are especially impressive.

Thank you Mike.
If I was forced to keep just one, I'd choose George, if I had to pick the hardest to build it would be Steed's imprint mask, the easiest Tara's portrait. The one I'm most impressed with, the Cybernaut, the least, Penrose's brain transfuser. Not because it hasn't turned out well, it has, I just don't like it.

Some of the things I want to add this year, Cathy's 'Golden Egg' box, Emma's door bells, the dagger from Legacy, the broadcast power unit, Emmapeelers, various signs, the brolly from Correct Way to Kill and two particularly huge props !

You're going to turn the rooms in your house into Remak from the episode Killer.

Ha ! Now there's an idea, and there's a few people I wouldn't mind lining up to shove in it Laughing No, it's the central console from The House That Jack Built (I already have a big acrylic dome) and the mind swap device from Whose Who ? Mind you, I've already made plans for the telescope from All Done With Mirrors and the field security control panel from Noon Dooms Day, largely because I'd really like to hang that on the garden wall Smile

OMG !! Imagine all the dusting Piers, the dusting Shocked

I really wish I could donate it all to somewhere dedicated to Sci Fi TV or some other similar organisation so it could all be put on permanent display together in a proper Avengers setting. But I don't think anywhere like that exists in the UK. There is so much I want to build but frankly I've run out of room to keep it, especially now with the much larger items. I have no idea where I'm going to put the Broadcast power transmitter when it's finished, and now I've got my heart set on constructing the 'time machine' one arm bandit from Escape in Time Confused Henrietta is sat on the wall unit in the lounge, when the guy came to sort out the cable TV last week the first thing he said was "having that creepy thing just sat there is simply all sorts of wrong" Rolling Eyes
