Here is the Prawn canister from the movie.
Image

My canister will be lit with a 4" UV cold cathode, mounted on the inside wall of the back cover.

Image

Image

Once it's painted and the window is darkened a bit, it should look eerie.

for canister window, I'm going to bend a piece of clear 1/8" thick case acrylic with a heat gun, but more on that later!

I made the canister's window today. Using a heat gun to bend the Lexan.

Forming the arc in window by pressing heated piece on the Aluminum rod. It's HOT!

The Prawn canister can't remain Silver. I prepped the aluminum surface with medium grit sandpaper, applied Black SEM self etching primer, then headed over to Brad's so he could apply the Pewter base color coat. Brad did all of the Prawn canister graphics by applying vinyl film and cutting the designs free hand with an Exacto, he used the movie still for reference. Look Ma, No vinyl film plotter or software!

Prawn canister window was tinted like original

While at the shop last night I cut some 1/8" thick mirrored acrylic sheets to encase the 5.25 bay around the canister location.

Image

I used the Scotch 4010 Heavy Duty Tape to adhere onto the mirrored acrylic

I think Christopher left his scrap PC out in the rain a few times. To create those results, I apply the Iron Surfacer to the top panel first, then the Rust Solution after 10 mins. I repeated these steps over different locations on the exterior. The more Rust Solution you apply, the more Orange colored effect you get.

NICE!!!

Wonder if you could place some (fake) chips on the fan? Make it seem like they were hard at work.
