So guys, do we for real want to make a float for this parade? If we do, we need to get moving on it. At one of the 501st's SCGie meetings, general consensus was that our friends there are happy to help again, and like the idea of having the float for the parade, particularly to have Chris Cerillo's carbonite Han displayed on it. First of all, we need to figure out a trailer situation. Does anyone have one or know of someone who might lend us one? Second, we need to draw up a design for the float itself. I made a VERY ROUGH sketch of what it could look like. Don't laugh at Han. Okay, go ahead. [image=http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e56/sohall/float.jpg] P.S. Didn't realize there was a bunch of extra white area when I did that. Click on the orange square that pops up in the bottom right hand corner(if you hover your mouse there) to enlarge it. The basic construction wouldn't be all that hard, just plywood, and for the lights, we could use those plastic sheets you use in kitchen lighting, painted orange/yellow, maybe with lights behind them (don't know how well that would show up in daytime, though.) Third, we need a place for the fabrication. We'd also need to schedule some work days, or, have different people make different parts of it and then bring it together and finish it together on a work day. (I personally think that's the better option since it's so hard to schedule a time and place for different people to meet. We'd all be working on the same blueprint so we know what the measurements are of the other person's pieces. What do you think????
