Well chaps, after nearly 2/3 months ive finally finished my Han Carbonite. I was going to do scratch built side panels but ive decided to save up and get them in a while as I believe it would do the prop more justice. So this is where I am after only £300 in total,including the Han cast. This has been a labour of love for me, and after much swearing, cursing and having to walk away im happy with it so far. The panels may be bought next year, or even the year after but I have the main body built now which I am so happy with. Its not 100% accurate and the carbonite finish is damn hard to get right, but im happy.

Ill be getting a plaque made to go onto the bottom and will be making a lighted stand in the near future. I present to you, probably one of the best props in the entire Star Wars universe-Han Solo in Carbonite :)
