Scratch-built Commlock

Scratch-built Commlock

I’ve put this one off for ages. I’ve always wanted to scratch-build a Space:1999 Commlock but I’ve seen it done by real masters of scratch-building. I’m calling it a prototype in that the idea was to figure out how to build one well by building one at all. And, yeah, I was nervous about not doing it well enough. 🙂 I have an LCD screen and electronics for the next iteration using what I learned. This one, as will the next, was built old-school using Plastruct sheets and tubing, plus some laser cut elements, 3D printed buttons with white-on-black label tape for the numbers.
