|SUBJECT: STAR TREK-II THE WRATH OF KAHN - TRICORDER / SCANNER|
KIT MAKER: UNKNOWN SCALE: 1:1
ADDED: Electronic lighting effects for the scanner beam emitters on the front & the control panel & display screen on top.
|This full scale prop-replica was sent to me to build on commission. It appears to be a garage kit & came with no instructions or |
anything to identify the maker. To facilitate battery installation, I designed & scratch-built the display screen as a separate unit
that can be lifted out of the body, to access the battery located below the screen.
|The display screen is a |
separate unit inserted
into the top of the
tricorder. It can be lifted
out, giving access to the
battery holder beneath it.

|SUBJECT: TOS - KLINGON DISRUPTER Original TV Klingon weapon design.|
KIT MAKER: Roddenberry SCALE: 1:1 (Full Scale)
|This is a full scale replica of the original design for a Klingon hand weapon, as used in The Original Series. This hefty replica is|
made of the same materials as the original - cast resin body parts with machined aluminum power chamber and emitter parts.
The replica came as a kit and was fairly easy to assemble, since the metal foil parts were all precut.
I'm not sure how rare this disrupter is, but I don't think too many are around since it wasn't listed on the Roddenberry website for
very long before going 'out of production'. In any case, I'm glad I got one as it makes a nice counterpoint to all the TOS phasers I
have in my collection.
