I'm scratch building an ANH chest box and remember reading that it wasn't square, it had several planes that weren't straight . Can anyone enlighten me on which edges they were please ? I'd like to get this as accurate as I can ( with my abilities).

Thanks in advance.

Loads of views but no opinions ? Looks like I'm on my own with this one.

I thought that I had a reply there . I seem to recall photographs of a cast from a screen used chest box posted years ago but can't seem to find them now. I thought that they may help with getting the shape right.

Those were probably posted in the Black Market section, as I seem to remember a lot of cast off screen used boxes being sold at one time with very nice pictures of them. Or... the pictures were nuked when imageshack and photobucket nuked their free accounts.

I never really saved them, as they weren't in my interest sphere at the time, which I'm suffering from now regarding the scaled project.

I saved a few photos of the "elstree" ANH casting, but only from straight on, no profile view. I'll try to dig them up. My understanding is that those castings were a bit undersized, but I wish I had one myself to scan and then enlarge for an accurate casting.

These are others' photos saved over the years. I believe they were thought to be authentic castings. Of course, reference photos of the original costume itself might be a better guide for you- chronicles, don post, starship, etc.

Thank you, they are gratefully accepted. I've begun gathering photos and when I find some free time will begin to analyse the shape. Then the fun part begins again - the construction.
