Languatron & Radiatron Hello again! Here are two more props from the original BSG which might serve you well during your next weekend trip: the languatron (portable translator), first seen in the pilot episode, and the radiatron (dosimeter) from "War Of The Gods". The models will look a lot more authentic if you use real LEDs and switches. The look of the Radiatron can be further improved by adding some slits at the left and the right of the display, pulling some thin tranparent foil through them and so covering the display. You may also decide to use the glowing display which you may get here, too.:mrgreen: You may also reinforce the models by adding an internal skeleton or glueing the outer walls to 1 or 2 mm thick cardboard. Due to the small size of the greeblies I have not added any tabs to them. You are free to make them yourself if felt necessary. Despite the fact that the props look black on screen and pictures I decided to make them dark grey to allow the texture to shine through. If you would like to get a black version, just glue black sheet around the body or use the pattern to trace it on black cardboard. When you take a closer look at these futuristic gadgets it is really funny to see how the prop department made them. They recycled PC equipment, ammo clips, calculators. The results looked absolutely convincing and high-tech on screen but every close-up revealed that they made absolutely no sense in reality! You too can clearly see in the series that the actor holding the gadget occasionally activates the switch to give the illusion that the gadget works.:twisted: Next in the line are two calculators bound together aka the (leg)board computron. Stay tuned!
